It runs just fine, but everytime I stop it stalls and I have to restart it. Does anyone know how to fix it?

    That year range the idle air control valve sticks or fails (it's right under the throttle housing). I have had great success cleaning the valve but it's foolish to speculate without first checking the basics. Check for vacuum leaks, clean the throttle housing, make sure plugs and ignition system are OK.
