Drew,

I don't have any 8 valve 190E experience but I think many of the fuel and ignition features are the same. On a 16 valve 190E there is a set of micro switches on the throttle linkage to shut the fuel off when you remove your foot from the throttle pedal at load abruptly, then, by having the linkage drop to its idle position and close the lower micro switch, set the computer to catch the rpm dropping through around 1800 rpm so that it idles. If the second micro switch is either broken or gummed up you don't give the computer the signal and you get a stall. I have had to clean this item on each of our 16 valve units several times.

The same with the "idle motor" between cylinders 2 and 3. We have to remove it and soak it in Sea Foam or the like overnight and then drain it and put it back in - if it is gummed up it may seem to work when you bench test it, but if it is reacting too slowly and you have that fuel saving micro switch bullshit set up it lets the car stall. I do not believe all the vehicles of the era had the micro switch set up. While it is a complication and needs to be attended to once the area gets gunked with dirt and grease and the like, the switches are simple and reliable. Just the linkage that needs to be kept clean. I use a spray electrical part cleaner liberally and then spray it with a lithium grease lube lightly.

Good luck - this stuff can be a pain. But it sounds like the car restarts, so, remember, shit can be worse. Count your "blessings."

Problem: stalls at a stop or while slowing down to a stop (All random)

If your suggestion fixes the problem then you will get $50. So far this problem has lasted one year and not a single suggestion from any of the forums has provided a solution that eliminated this stalling.

Rules: You must state step by step the procedure that you would undertake. It must be replicated by an idiot like me and will not require that I end up in the hospital. In addition, replacing the whole engine or complete systems are not acceptable solutions. You must pinpoint a specific problem, support it then list and describe exactly how you would go about it.
Before I implement your solution it must be vetted. Once I agree to go with your solution there will be a testing period of two weeks before I declare you a winner.

Note: This competition is listed in several forums
I reserve the right to terminate this competition at will
It Sounds like a bad pick up coil in the distributor and or a bad bearing in the distributor. Check for play in the bearing by moving the rotor if no play then it sounds like the pick up coil is bad.

Is the money in a stable currency or the U.S. green back and is this contest associated with a free time share????
