Default car runnin problems with 92 bonneville SSE non supercharged

bought a white 1992 Pontiac Bonneville SSE 3.8 i believe with a vin code L non supercharged

guy i bought it from was buying a crown Victoria and didn't need the car no more
car has little over 122,000 miles he said it was a new transmission, he said it had recently tuned up, replaced cam shaft sensor, and passed inspection.

Currently I'm trying to get the car to stop cutting off at low idle and after im pushing throttle hitting over 45 mph me and my grandpa just replaced the ignition modular after i took the car to a shop to test for codes, they wanted to charge me 500$ right then and there "bull!!!" lol.

my grand pa thinks it could be one of the three fuel filter, fuel pump, the third is oil change i say three only because i am going to change the oil soon as possible after i get this problem solved

note the engine light is still on and thats the only code that came up!

Do you have this computer port below the steering column?

If so, here is the code retrieval procedure (in Techinfo). Just requires a metal paper clip.

This one is for code translations

It will be the check engine light that is on the left side of the dash board in the panel with the warning messages.

no, when you ground it via the paper clip it will flash and you need to count the flashes to get the code.

Right, do NOT disconnect the battery. That would be bad, because it will erase the codes you have stored.

Basically you are going to short A & B together with the bent paper clip.
Then, turn the key on, but don't start.
If you watch the check engine light, it will start flashing.
First it will do "1" flash, followed by "2" flashes, which is a "12" and says the diag. is working.
After flashing "12" 3 times or so, Start watching and counting.
The first digit will flash (count) then the 2nd digit.
It will do this 3 times before going to the next code.
When it has displayed all the codes this way, it repeats, coming of with the "12" again.
You can shut it down and remove the clip now.

NOTE: It will display any codes stored since they were last cleared. So you may see some old ones too. Write them all down, etc. That way, you can later disconnect the battery to clear them and start over, with your test drives, or whatever, and see what codes are gone and which ones are showing up now.
Hope that makes sense. Force be with you.

It is located slightly behind the waterpump pulley.
Need a 10mm socket and extension.
I had my passenger side wheel off and the plastic fender liner off and was real easy from that angle. Or you can do it from above by "touch" after eyeballing it with a mirror.
