It could be any number of things with this many miles.....First off Id
check the fuel pressure...
Before I went cazy thinking what it could be...Also do you have any
codes ? These things have a habbit of rubbing the wire harnesses on
different parts of the engine causing shorts....

After coming to a stop.
TCC sticking. IOW the convertor is still in lock up when the vehicle
comes to a stop and the engine stalls. Similar to leaving a manual
transmission in gear, coming to a stop and not stepping on the clutch.
EGR valve not seated correctly, ie:sticking.
FWIW I had the sticky EGR valve on my Caprice and it was a pain to
diagnose because it and the circuit always checked out ok. Replaced the
valve and my intermittant, poor idle/ throttle response disappeared.
My son has a 1992 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 with about 125,000 miles on it .
The problem is that at times car wants to stall out and die. Only when
he has driven it at speeds over 50 mph. Have looked into it possibly
being a sticking egr, but checks ok. Does this sound like anything
thatanyone has seen.
