It'* hard to say, since what you describe sounds a bit more like an electrical anomoly. It is certainly something that you need to do to bring your car into good maintenance, but, you still need to check those battery cables again and follow up with us in case you have an ICM problem.

Let'* just say that sometimes, after a car has just so many miles and years on it, it needs some tender lovin' care. Call it maintenance and you'll be right.

It sounds like your vacuum lines need replacing, but you likely still have other worn out items to address before it gets back in fine fettle.

Vacuum lines won't stall a running car.

Go back to your battery connections. All of them. Including the grounds. Pull the boots off and reinspect them. You CANNOT see the corrosion unles you pull the boots off. Check your two alternator connections very carefully, and consider simply replacing your battery cables.
