Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

If you havent checked for any vacuum leaks this should be done.If there are any vacuum leaks on the engine in some cases this can cause a stall out when opening the throttle like this here.If this is or was checked and found o.k. let me know.
