Default Weir stalling problem

Hi all,

My wife 94 bonnie started developing a problem and was hoping someone else has run into this.

The car started stalling all of a sudden for no apparent reason. Happened twice at a red light. Engine just quit. Wife started the car and on it'* way...

So looked at the battery connections and the ground was a little loose. (this is the first car I've had where it wont run with the battery disconnected and a working alternator)

Yesterday, problem changed. At a red light again, engine races then just stalls.

Starts up and runs fine again.

This was weird. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thx

94 bonnie, auto, no *-Charger...

Check your PCV valve, your throttle position sensor, and clean your MAF. These are all covered in the tech info area.

92-94'* were known to have a problem with baffles in the fuel tank breaking loose. This would typically show itself at stoplights, downhill and turns.

If the fuel level is low, this is a possibility.
