It could be the "bypass" like described in the other posting, or a dirty (sticking) AIC-control valve or a hole in the air intake pipe (wrong air metered by the LH-system)... Try to check those things! -RCS- Jim Collins wrote: > I have an 89 that intemittently dies on my daughter. She > says it is usually when she pushes in the clutch for a > shift.
