hi, this is common on the distributor mounted ignition control module

the module heats up and breaks down .and it doesn't matter if it is idling or driving ..

I would have the ICM-ignition control module checked out at an auto parts store and have them check it twice so it can heat up ..

other causes may be the distributor pick up assembly in the dist .

please check for spark if it doesn't start right back up after stalling ..jazzmaster
