Default New funky happening-

This is kind of an update on my studdering puking running at idle deal from the last 10 days. Now first off- I'm running 93 octane! so that'* settled.
Yesterday- I'm in city traffic 30-40 stop and go type traffic. I feel the car almost go neutral- I look at the gauges and tach is bouncing up and down- it'* trying to die on me just like my idle issue in previous thread. I've been thinking it'* like a vapor lock situation but still not sure. The shop got my car done friday doing all the manifold gaskets so that was kind of priority. It has NEVER as much as sneeze while running/driving- only this idle thing.
So it did it a few times, I was power breaking it at lights afraid it would die on me- can't be having that in crowded traffic- especially when I'm staring over at a Prius thinking to myself that I'm glad I still got my stones.
I'm going to try the fuel filter and cleaning out whatever on the intake side today. She'* starting to scare me a little though- This is a relationship based on trust and faith- The ground is shaking.
If you have any ideas please share.
Thanks!

I while back I had a car that would run fine, but stall on idle, turned out to be a vacuum leak.

you know, after being all apart on top on friday- that is certainly a possibility. but it is intermittent- one of those come and go things- I had a computer go on my Chrysler that did the same thing-but it was a common known problem. I haven't found anything like like searching through here.

Please keep this all in one topic. In multiple topics if is very hard for folks searching in the future to keep all the stuff together and it'* also necessary for those of us helping to diagnose. We would have to go back to the other thread to get back up to speed on your issues and what we had suggested.

Thanks
