I had the same problem with mine! I spent what seemed like hours trying to figure it out. I finally gave up and just said, while I'm here I'll just do all my preventative maintenance checks and give up for now. I noticed while checking the radiator that the antifreeze was low so I added a little less than a couple of quarts, closed the hood, started it to move it back to the driveway and guess what? It fixed itself! I guess it was just low enough on fluid it was telling itself, "I need to warm up." Hey, maybe you'll get lucky and the same simple thing might be the problem. Also their is a (usually vac. controlled) switch located on the throttle linkage that allows your engine to de-accelerate "softer" instead of just dropping all at once when you let off the gas. I have seen these switches with age or dirt and grime, stick in a position that the throttle wont fall all the way down. A couple of things to check that my be a simple fix. Hope all works out for you!

I'm having trouble starting the car. When it idols the RPM's pulsates up-and-down and then it stalls. Once under way the car seems to run fine but without any warning it will die as I start to

check air filter, might be plugged, [dirty so engine is starving for air.] check fuel lines & filters, dirt blockage need replaceing, check for fuel leaks in lines etc, uses fuel & then sucks air causing it to stop, listen to see if fuel pump is running properly & not stuttering could be short in it's wiring
