Question about 1986 AMC American Motors Eagle
For the stalling issue! Mine does this, after much tinkering it seems to be the fast idle cam, a small plastic part of the carter carb on my 84 wagon. Gonna get a new carb, or rebuild ASAP

Having worked in an AMC dealership for 14 years, I would def suggest removing the carb & having the float bowl cleaned, and new gaskets installed. A "rebuild" if you will. This will solve your problem. VERY common issue with AMC carbs.

For a older car like yours, sometime sick just like an older people. Car is different, if you can find the reason why cause this kind problem, as soon as you fix it, it will run for a while, but it is not easy, I think when you drive for a while, the engine is hot and inside is over heated, the ring on the piston expanded, that’s cause the engine stalled, after 10 to 15 minutes, the engine cool down, it will start and drive a short distance again and wait until the engine getting hot again, it will stall again.
How do you solve this problem, go to junk yard and find a low mileage engine put in or rebuild your engine.
Hope this can help.
