You need to clean the throttle valve and the idle speed control valve, they get sludged up and cause this issue. Get a can of throttle valve cleaner from your local parts store, pull off the rubber flex air intake hose and start engine, have someone hold engine at high idle while you spray the contents of the can into the intake, when the can is about 1/2 empty let the engine stall, disconnect the battery for 30 minutes and then restart, quickly push the throttle wide open a few times to blow out any loose sludge, and that should cure your stall.

Starting Problem


Look on the distributor. There is a module on it that, when too hot, will cause miss/stall/no re-start situations.
