stalling problem 560SL

My 87 560SL has a problem of stalling when stopping lately.It doesn't happen all of the time, but enough to scare my wife to near death. She just got back from Palm Springs with no problems, and yesterday stalled twice in a mile.After serveral cranks fires up again. Any help would be greatly appreciated

check to see if the engine has a pcv valve on top of the valve covers. if so when they get clogged the car stalls like you mentioned.

If not the PCV I had a similar problem with a temperature sensor. It actually threaded into the thermostat area and used coolant temperature to indicate hot or cold to set air fuel mixture. Is there any roughness right before stall? If so the sensor could be starting to fail and it is not "telling" the computer that the engine is warm and to lean out the mixture.
