87 Stanza Wagon stalling
315K miles...shop installed New Jasper block and transmission. After 2.5 months w/ them and 3 wks w/ dealer, got it back and have been driving with two feet to keep the revs up at stoplights. MPG used to be 24/27,had dropped to 19/20...now seems to be back up to 24. They couldn't get it to stop dying INTERMITANTLY BUT VERY OFTEN when stopping (after initial 15 minutes running fine), although it starts right back up. Also when it starts to choke down and I catch it, it's slow to get back to smooth running(about 5 seconds). Steep hills(going down) will definately cause it. Also occasionally, it skips a beat. All hoses, diaphrams, MAF, O2 sensor, thermostat, water pump, computer, wiring, flywheel, distributor, alternator, plugs, wires, fuel pump/relay filter either changed/checked...if replacement didn't fix it, they put original part back. Might be an an aside, but some of the switches have gone on the blink...cruise,back wiper and back defrost only 3 of the wires heat up...also radio speakers are cutting in and out and I had to replace the brake lights fuse (4/1/08) . Have put about 7k miles on it since above repairs.
