Has it been happening long? It sounds like a fuel problem. There could be a drop in fuel pressure because the fuel pump is faulty, or the fuel filter is blocked. Check the air filter to see if it's blocked. After that, I'd check the TFI module on the dizzy & swap the coil.

Have you replaced any of these parts in the past, or since you've had the car? And, have you go a repair manual?

Sorry, I've only got Gregory's & Max Ellery's manuals so I don't know. There are sections that cover troubleshooting & testing of different parts.

Give the idle control solenoid a clen out. It is located on top of the throttle body. Odds on thats causing your idle problems.

I had a similar problem with my ED and it turned out to be a faulty map sensor.
