    yes it is an automatic, and i have noticed the it dose it a lot more when its hot, not so much when its still warming up. So i think its the choke. stupid thing, I just about hit some one in the snow today because of no power brakes!!

    Is it the worst when you slow down after you have been crusing at the same speed for a while?

    yes it will stall when i try to park(IN reverse) after driveing home (an hour or so), and some times when driveing as i go to make a turn or something it will just quit on me. If theres no choke i am really at a loss. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It sounds like your torque convertor clutch isnt unlocking.

    Unplug the wiring harness on the drivers side of the tranny. Drive it around. Problem still exist? If so, it's not the converter clutch.

    Just don't do it for long periods of time, (days/months) unless you have an aux. tranny cooler. Leaving the thing unlocked can lead to extra heat buildup, which is a bad thing. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
