i have the same problem with my 85,and after checking the net,it seems like an ongoing problem for alot of celeb owners. all with no explanation on how to solve the problem....good luck !

It's likely the fuel injector(s). replaced them and it fixed problem.

I had the same thing happen. It was the crank shaft position sensor.

Crank sensor...common problem!

possibly bad coil pack. It is right under the front exhaust manifold.
