Wife experienced a stall as she was parking. Car started right up and no problems since it happened last night. Did a scan and no codes. One other thing odd was that air bag light was on the day before and now is out so with the two I suspect a bad ground. Where are the grounds on this vehicle and which one is it most likely? I know with the Bonnies it was the ground under the carpet next to the front seats. :bhuh:

Wife just called and did it again. She said she smelled gas when it happened. I believe it could be the vacuum hose on the FPR as I did notice it was in need of replacement as it didn't look good. I'll replace that and possibly the FPR also. When I did my scan I did notice the LT Fuel trim was hanging out at -17. I still would like to know where the grounds are as well.

My moms olds intrigue keeps doing the same thing.

I would replace the vacuum hosing. Hasn't done it yet. The hoses on her engine were crappy and kept falling apart.

I checked it out and found vacuum hose is fine but there is an odor of gas in the line so the regulator is bad. I have never seen one like this so I'll have local shop take care of this. Looks a bit complicated and I have no manual yet. Hopefully that is the problem.
