sounds like the mixture is not correct for a cold engine operation
choke still on to far or not on at all or ECM is not adjusting mixture for engine temp conditions
run fault codes if ECM operated or check choke if carby
check all ignition fuses make sure they are in tight.check make sure ignition module wires intact.check battery if you have the maintance free delco battery make sure the eye is green in it.if not replace the battery.bad battery causes stalling problem.
Hi it's me rosemary2729 with a solution.
Firstly I took the car to a garage who said that they could change the plugs + air filter + fuel filter + oil etc. and if that didn't work could then try other things until they solved it. This sounded like a ticket to print money. I then decided to get a man who comes to the house and who carried out one of these diagnostic checks. He said it was the lambda sensor which is at the engine side of the catalytic convertor on the exhaust. Of course, the lambda sensor on this car model was not of the standard cheap type. The diagnostic man said about £300. On ebay I got one for £62. All internet instructions said a 15 minute job. However to save my husband of having to struggle under the car got a garage to do the job, which took 10 mins and cost £10. Car now runs like a dream, no flat spot and no chugging.
Major tune up and change the crank sensor and the camshaft sensor. Also look at the wire harnes for both they have a problem shorting out. Mostly the harness to the crank sensor at or above the oil filter. This wire shorts because of heat and needs to be rerouted and insulated. Also, make sure you have all your gaskets inside of the intake maniflods and throttle body is secure with no air leakes. Change all your senors on this car that seems to be the trouble with this car is the sensors........runjoe
