Find another shop. The problem is in the vacuum system, most likely with the vacuum advance. If the car dies when idling in gear there is a problem keeping the throttle from adjusting correctly, unless of course it has a manual transmission in which case you wouldn't be leaving that car in gear without the clutch activated. Check the Vacuum advance, MAP sensor and Throttle position sensor, one or more of those is going to be faulty unless you have a major issue in your heads like a blown head gasket or bad valves.

I had a leaky heater core. Had it replaced at local garage, lot of work! No more anti freeze smell, but now no hot air, only cold. Could it be a wiring connector not connected ?

Is the heater core valve being opened to allow the hot water in? If the valve is electric then maybe the wire for it was not reinstalled when the work was done. If valve is mechanical in nature then the linkage was not re hooked up.

My car's ac doesn't always work. you can feel cold air but nothing is blowing out,. usually after i get going it will kick in. sometimes after I hit a bump. what can this be?

This could mean the A/C needs re-filling which can be done at your local garage and doesn't cost much and requires about 20 mins of time to complete.

1. My suspicion is your electronic ignition

3. Distributor timing gear is damaged (replace)
