Q: Engine runs rough, stalls on 1990 Dodge Spirit

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Engine sometimes runs rough when slowly accelerating, especially going up a slight incline; sometimes will start running rough while traveling along the road and usually within a minute or two will have very little power and stall. When this happens it will run very rough for a few seconds when trying to restart. After it cools down, it will start again and run fine for awhile.

Sounds like your engine is starving for fuel, Replace your inline fuel filter at the rear of the vehicle just in front of the rear wheel. You also have a filter in the fuel tank. If either filter or both is clogged, the symptoms you described are applicable.
