What happened? Perhaps it is an indication of something? I am just curious.

It'* doing it again, this time worse.

The car sometimes will idle, sometimes it wont. When I start it sometimes it will die and stall.

Whenever I would slow down and take a turn, the RPM needle would drop down to the 500rpm range, then stall out.

Now, I was going about 55mph, slowed to 40mph for a turn, and the RPM'* dropped and stalled. Very dangerous corner.

Anyone know whats wrong with it.

I haven't read through your old posts, but did you replace the TPS - throttle position sensor?

Yes, TPS was replaced.

It has done it on a full tank I believe, not 100% sure but cant really afford to fill it up anytime soon.

Edited to add: About a month ago, the fuel pump, fuel filter, and alot of fuel lines were replaced. I dont think its a fuel issue.

Could it be related to the cam interruptor?

The car will run without the cam sensor... Maybe not always a strong as you want it to but it will run...

You may be having a Crank Sensor issue, Ignition Control module issue, or possibly a bad ECM... Hard to say where the problem may be at this point...

Dont know.

When I put the brakes on, the rpms drop below 1k and sometimes it stalls out.

I think its time to retire the old one. As much as I cant afford a new car I dont have a choice.
