Default running/starting issues

I have a 92 bonneville se with 111000 miles on it. I bought it used not to long ago but the problem is this when your driving it just stalls, and sometimes it won't restart right away. Or if your sitiing still, say at a light it will stall and sometimes it won't restart right away, or if you push the car backwards a foot or two it will start. And for the last few days when you first start it it idels low and sounds like it'* misfiring and stalls, but it starts right back up.I just gave it a full tune up in cluding a coil and module and today I am going to replace the cam position sensor but in the event that doen't help does anyone have any ideas to solve this problem? Any help would be appreciated. thank you

First off, welcome to the club. Do you have a check engine light when this happens? How much fuel is in the tank when it happens? Does it stall both warm or cold, and at any speed? I t could be either a spark or fuel probem. Can you check your fuel pressure, and for spark when it happens?

When you say it won't start right away, does it crank, but not fire? Or just click? Or nothing?

Default start

As wil allways said in the past its best to start with the battery and ground connections. Clean and re - tighten. How old is the battery?
