Default 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue 3.8L -> quick question..

Hey everyone

I got a quick question my gfs moms car is a 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue, same engine as our cars but I got the older 89 3.8L, just curious she says the car stalls while driving, idleing.. anytime .. on the road.. in park.. etc.. First thing that pops into my mind is the timing chain, She says she had a tune up not long ago, oil change and alll... I figured just needs a tune up but if she already had that done??!? Could it be something with the fuel system? bad injectors?? it can almost be anything. What do you guys suggest I look into first. Thanks guys ... glad I drive a bonneville

Check the fuel pressure when it stalls.

Check the tire pressure, wear on the seats, glovebox latch, and quality of the carpet in the trunk.

Or check the codes FIRST.

Alright ill look into these issues ahha like the last one there.
I had this problem with my 86 Lesabre and it was the timing chain thats why I suspected this problem. but ill troubleshoot as best as I can here.
