First thing connect a vacuum gauge, check for leaks! Misfiring code, Hego code. Air injection code, Clear them and drive it Lucas isn't doing anything to it. Check the fuel pressure at the rail in PSI If Ok scan it again timing issue and misfire correct these.

Ok I will check that tonight... But the but I still don't this is the cause of the sputtering / stalling being that Iv had those codes for weeks... I haven't checked for new codes since this has happened tho .......... I took a video of what it's doing https://m.youtube.com/watch? v=xx_ekrO8DMU
