Could just be the key. Do you have a second one? How is th evehicle's charging system? A new EIS (electronic ignition module) could be more than $1,000.00. You also have pneumatic actualtors that unlock/lock the doors once the EIS recognizes your key fob. When the "lock vehicle" button is pressed the remote control key sends a radio frequency and infrared signal to the corresponding receivers in the vehicle. These receive the signal and transfer the contents on to the electronic ignition switch (EIS) control module (N73) via the CAN bus. The EIS checks the code for access authorization. If the check indicates that the code is valid, the EIS transmits the "lock" command to the PSE control module (combined) (A37) via the CAN bus. The PSE control module then locks the doors pneumatically. In addition the interior switches, i.e. the interior switch (CL) (S6s1) and remote trunk release switch (N71s15) are disabled. When the remote control key is inserted into the electronic ignition switch (EIS) control module (N73) after locking, the interior switches are enabled again. The central locking is then in the same state as after locking with the interior switch (CL) (S6s1).
I had a 91 GT that did the same thing. It was the ignition module but check it first. Do you have spark all the way to the plugs after it stalls? How's the fuel pump? Don't just start throwing parts at her, that's how half the cars come to the shop. $800.00 worth of new parts and all they needed was a $1.93 fuse.
Your springs made be worn out or maybe your exhaust system broke a hanger. Look underneath and follow the exhaust pipes all the way to the tailpipe to make sure. If you're carrying lots of stuff in the trunk remove it. You'll even get better gas mileage with all the extra stuff removed.
Don't use it! Replace the damaged part. This stuff will clog all the wrong parts and then the cost of repair will be painful. Dublin Auto Repair is right in Dublin, call Jon at (925)828-0243
It's the temp sensor in the EGR passage. Need to check it first.

Disconnect the steering linkage and tie rod ends, disconnect the power steering lines. Remove the two brackets holding the rack to the frame. To install remanufactured rack reverse order and bleed the system ot get all the air out of the lines. Don't let steering wheel move. Probably 3.5 hour job plus fluid. There will be a core charge on the steering rack. You will need to get an alignment after the installation.
Now your asking the right questions! How many posted did you put in here anyway? They are right in the door jam. Some have a large jam nut holding them others have a small screww holding them secure. The switch is about $20.00 at the dealer and take about 20 minutes to replace. Check them both, one may be stuck or jammed.
