my buddy had a 88 and a 90 that did this same thing, thousands were spent trying to figure the problem out, just for it to come back. he sold them as he could never figure it out. But you might want to test the TPS and O2 sensor, But a good start would be to have your mechanic drive it for a bit with his scanner hooked up to the OBD port. best of luck.

sounds like the o2 sensor is bad
