My Firebird falls asleep at stop lights . . . Help!

Asked by Jun 01, 2010 at 11:37 PM about the 1979 Pontiac Firebird

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My '79 Firebird w/ a 4.9 ltr slowly stops running when I'm sitting at a stop light.  Otherwise, the car runs and drives fine.  When sitting at a light, the RPMs slowly decrease until the engine stops.  Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks!
Randy
