I have found this often to be a problem w/ cracked, unplugged or misrouted vac lines.  The carters idle tubes are a known issue as well.  This is one of the reasons I went the Motorcraft route many years ago.  I always can hear a Jeep/Eagle comming to the house because they usually die at the stop sign at the top of the hill.  I smile and walk outside to wait for them to restart and get to me. :)

I discovered almost every BBD I've had came loose around the middle. The screws that held the body together would back out (largely due to the aircleaner weight flopping around on rough roads, stopping and starting out fast)

Oregongirl:

As per your stalling problems....I had the same problem for awhile. Seems my problem was the front of the exhaust manifold coming loose.  I hear this is a problem with the 258. Some loosen up in the rear, mine loosen up in the front. The car runs great for a few months then it starts to stumble. Then stalls. I go out and tighten the fron3 bold on the manifold. It runs great aftwer that. I plan to put some locktight on them when I get a chance.

Will locktight work? I'm wondering if it's too hot. We've been talking about trying to figure out a way to tighten more permanently - but was thinking the area would be too hot for locktight.

ETA: Woops...this is Euphonical, I need to not read the board under my husband's name apparently. I just saw the idea of using locktight and it got me all excited as to the idea that maybe it could work LOL - didn't dawn on me I was under the wrong user...think I'll log out now and login correctly  :newbie:

I have never heard of such a thing. Where do we purchase the correct ones?

I just take a bolt or nut to match the size at the hardware store.
