  1. Thank you all for everything. Finally got it fixed. After 7 months the opti spark was replaced and it seems to be running fine. Along the way the throttle body was replaced and a sensor on the radiator. Lets hope it lasts.
  2. Ok finally - air idle control and throttle body was changed - car runs fine but still stalls when warmed up but starts right up afterward . this is what they are telling me. The next thing they are going to look at is the "map" which I think stands for manual air pressure sensor ( could have that wrong) if that doesn't work they are out of ideas. Any suggestions? Thanks Kevin
  3. I use leatherique conditioner and cleaning products as well as dye - will use nothing else and great company to deal with -
  4. I replaced mine with Nu-Relics - warranty is for life - I am happy with them - A83
  5. Thank you all -appreciate all the tips and will pass them on - the Engine is an ATK engine -company is in Texas - less than 8,000 miles on it. The application is a 350 Chev 96-97 LT-1 engine. It is fuel injected. Engine was new in the car when I bought it in May of 2014.
  6. Thank you. The engine is fuel injected and I was told the computer controls the idle but not confirmed. Will have the temp sensor checked. Could a short be the problem as I had an occurrence where the car just shut off after hear a snapping noise with the radio shutting off?
  7. 1983 Avanti with 350 LT engine with 5,000 miles. Idle drops and shuts off when car is warmed up. Any suggestions? My mechanic can't figure it out. I had to drive with one foot on brake and the other on the gas to keep the idle up. The car does have a computer - kind of old and clunky looking. I am admittedly mechanically challenged. Other than this car runs fine. Appreciate any help. Thanks A83
