I'd change the plugs, wires and the ignition coil if you can see cracks. They are enclosed in oil so you may see oil as well but engine may be oily all over. If all of that is original then replace those three thing. Cost maybe $150 if you do it yourself.

It's the lean burn system that's probably the problem. If you replace the Engine control module/computer then it should solve your problem at least temporarily. I know there is a conversion to get away from the lean burn system for good, but I have not tried that out myself yet. But my engine control module seems to go out during extreme weather.

P0410 Secondary AIR System Performance

P1599 Engine Stall Detected

Leave it to GM to use a computer code to tell you your engine died. The AIR system was a mistake they felt like was best corrected by continuing to use it. The system is similar to EGR function where it injects air into the exhaust for emissions. When it screws up, and it does often, it makes the car run horrible and is usually expensive to fix because the parts are hard to find. I would call a local GM dealer, give them the codes and see what they estimate the cost to fix it is. You might consider trading it in after that.

Malfunction code P1167/P1162 my 98 ho da accord ex VTEC 2.3L stalls out when I come to a stop. Restating is not a problem, but every time I come to a stop it stalls. Idle drops and then stall's.

You may have 2 problems. The trouble codes are for an oxygen sensor fault. You likely have a bad oxygen sensor, but that usually won't cause a car to stall. If you're having issues at idle, look for vacuum leaks or possibly a very dirty throttle body.

Why does my1992 Toyota Previa keep shutting off & stalling?

Possibly, but you could also suspect the computer-controlled idle valve or motor, the throttle position sensor, or a weak fuel pump.

It might help you to check for any trouble codes in the computer. The check engine light is used to flash out 2 digit trouble codes; here's how to do so, with a list and description of codes:

Stalls after getting gas then starts fine. Also noticed it idles rough at other times. No trouble codes. Any thoughts?

When it stalls after getting gas, are you filling the tank up beyond the first stop? I was filling mine up after the pump shuts itself off in order to top it off as much as possible. I learned this can plug some type of purge vent or something like that. I stopped topping it off and haven't had a problem since. Mine would hesitate and then die at the first couple stop lights after getting gas. From what I've read, the cheap fix is not to fill it up past the stop point, but the permanent fix is to replace the gas tank since the vent physically part of the tank.

Trouble with my rpms

Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
