Hi,My 89' Reliant stalls when slowing down to a stop sign or parking lot.Could the cause be the fuelpump or distributer pickup?

Possibly a fuel issue, but have the pressure checked before condemning the pump. Is the gas filter good? And the air filter?

It could be an idling issue-idle too low. Check if can be raised, or if idle control motor or valve needs service. Idle should be around 750 rpm, in drive gear, maybe a bit lower, not below 650 rpm, though.

Depending on which transmission you have the neutral safety switch is on the right side of the unit or the left rear corner just above the pan. Also check the relay located in the power distribution center.
