hey i got the same problem with my 88 suburban.... what a pain. you have to let
off gas pedal way early and let it coast to stop or it stalls .i need to know
some options too . if you hear please email me . greatly appriciated ,kevin
Does it only happen when you brake? I had a bad power booster in my
85 Pontiac that caused the exact same thing. When you stepped on the
brake, the booster created a vacuum leak that would kill the engine.
Easy test is to plug the vacuum hose to the power booster and see if
that helps. You will need both feet to stop the truck though.
I kind of have the same issue with a 93 suburban. Kinda weird, before the
transmission went out (the first time) would stall when stopped at a light or in
reverse. Then I got the tranny replaced and it stopped. Then the tranny went
out again (gotta love those Chevy trannies) and now it's back to stalling. I'm
thinking they jarred something. Might be connected to what you guys are seeing.
Does it restart OK?
If it wants to stall when restarting after this happens, could be a
torque converter clutch solenoid. Cavalier would work till it got warm
then would have to start in neutral.
