Engine quit while driving- added gas - turns over but won't start
Driving along normal about 30 MPH when engine stalled. Gas gauge is whacky so thought out of gas. Added about 1.5 gallons and still won't start. Turns over but no vroom! Took out 2 spark plugs and they seemed damp but not really wet with gas,

I just went through lots of troubleshooting and expense on my 1996. Whenever I would lift my foot off the accelerator and was below about 30 mph, the rpm's would starts jumping around and sometimes it would stall. If I gave it a little gas (accelerator), I could sometimes keep it running. It also backfired once in a while. Starts right back up. Also, if I let it idle while in part, it would die after 1-2 minutes.
I ended up finding a hole in the fuel regulator. About a ~$70 part if you get an AC Delco, but very simple to change.
