A few times lately, with no check engine lights coming on or any other warning, my 88 would stall, sometimes while traveling as fast as 50 mph. This means no power steering or power brakes, kiddos. Fortunately, I was able to restart by shifting into neutral, but its not very fun or safe!!!
However, changing the MAF sensor has seemed to fix the problem, and it wasn't really that difficult.
