Default I'm a damsel in distress!

I have an 89 Bonneville SSE. I bought it in Sept 2002.

Two days ago, while driving, it started chugging, sputtering and stalling. It starts without any problem but eventually (quite quickly) will sputter and stall.

Yesterday, I had the fuel filter changed, spark plugs checked/changed, high tension leads checked; battery checked. There is definitely fuel getting to the injectors. Everything that was checked is fine.

There are no trouble codes coming up on computer yet my freaking car is un-drivable! :( .

Somebody suggested that I might have gotten a bad batch of gas.....but wouldn't the fuel filter have been clogged (which it wasn't)?

Anybody have any suggestions??

Got it already. In another thread. I'll lock this one but leave it here to refer up to the other one in Mechanical and Maintenance. We'll get her through this on the other thread. That way we don't split this topic up.
