I need more info. Do you have any check engine lights on? If you do. You probably can pull some kind of code off using specific techniques usually in a service manual this might help (using blinking check engine light). If not then i have to ask when last tune up was this includes plugs and i am going to stress plug wires as well, cap, rotor, fuel filter. ignition timing? If you cannot recall any of these i would sugggest doing all of them. you can do all this yourself in under 2 hours. I am really stressing plug wires because it sounds like you are not getting good spark. Or you might not getting the fuel when needed (full throttle) which leans toward a filter. I would do all of these things including ignition timing. Might not be a bad idea to check on your timing belt and see if it is in good condition and didnt jump some teeth. I dont know if this car uses a chain or not. If it does use a chain then disregard the timing belt/chain. I hope some info here helps and good luck.

Car wanting to die out on stop n go

Try changing the temperature sending unit. This regulates the cold start mode and it appears it's still in cold start mode and still feeding it too much fuel, causing a flooding condition and making it die at stops. When you depress throttle to go, it's still getting too much fuel and wants to bog and die on take-off.

Replace your hose going from intake to brake booster ( vacuum leak) check all other hoses also. Clean the throttle body. And a tune up probably wont hurt either.

Have an 88 deville that bucks&surges at any cruzing speed.she accelarates just fine.sometimes idles rough,sometimes not.have replaced dist.plugs,wires,t.p.s,egr valve,ism.Im thinking injectors.

try checking the coil for leaks. if it looks discolored anywhere on the coils then it's leaking. i had the same problem with mine. sounds like the same thing mine was doing untill i replaced the coil. could also be the drive gear for the distributor to but highly unlikely
