My El falcon stalls intermittently. Usually happens while waiting at the lights. Has even happened while coating up to a stop. Not exactly sure what could be causing the problem, any ideas? :cry:

Have you recently disconnected the battery? If so, they will take approx 1 month to relearn the idle settings, and then it should stop stalling

I'll check the dizzy thanks. So far the possible courses are fuel pump, vacuum hoses, relays near the battery, coil, dizzy and torque converter looks like I’ve got my work cut out for me tracking this one down any more ideas would be good, especially if it helps me narrow down the list a little. :?:
