Engine stalls at stop signs. Has new fuel pump
It stalls and has no power since there is not fuel. It could be :
1- Fuel filter is clogged up.
2- Injectors are clogged up.
3- Throttle body gummed up.
Do # 1 first if it doesn't improve the situation, then follow these items:
A- Check the injector module if it is working by Plug in NO ID at each injector electrical plug to see if they are lighted up during the cranking.
- If there are lights flashing up at these injectors then Injector Module is good.
- If there isn't light flashing then the injector Module needs to be replaced.
B- If the injector Module is good, proceed to C.
C- Break the connection from the gas line to the fuel Distributor and start the engine to make sure gas is delivered to the fuel distributor before proceeding to D
D- Check out # 2 by removing Injector from cylinder #1 leaving the electrical plug in, with a bottle or Ziplock bag to catch the fuel then have a helper to start the engine to see if fuel coming out of the injector. If there isn't then the injector is bad. Replace a bad injector. You can repeat this method for the rest, or just replace all injectors as I would suggested as the car age.
After this, it should be running well and sometimes having stalled then the time to clean the throttle body.
