When car stalls, it starts up again no problem. I also notice volt gage drops during the rough idle before stalling. Told it could be a vacuum leak somewhere along the line. This problem does not happen but occasionally.

    Thanks for the response! Btw, I had the intake manifold replaced since there was an issue with these.
