Question about 1998 Chevrolet Prizm
Crossfire injection systems are notorious for poor performance. Your solution is an expensive one. Your intake manifold has a sort of restriction in each port. I'm not sure what purpose these restrictions serve, but because of poor air/fuel circulation in the manifold, gasoline puddles on these flat spots after the engine has reach proper operating temperature. As a result, when you stop at a stoplight (for example), as the engine rev's down to idle, it begins to sputter and cough, and can eventually stall. The engine will not restart because it is flooded...the gasoline puddle has been sucked into the engine, and you'll need to wait for it to evaporate off.
To resolve this issue, you might want to replace the whole Crossfire system with one from a newer Camaro or Corvette (tuned port injection). If you REALLY want to make your Crossfire setup work, you'll need to remove your intake manifold and mill the flat spots off of the ports. Since this will change the way the air/fuel mixture enters your engine, you'll need to have your engine re-tuned for the new configuration.
