It might be that the idle needs adjusted up a little

not sure thats it because it idles fine most of the time but just some days it just does it when i'm driving it and come to a stop not when i just go out to start it in the morning it will sit there and idle fine lol not really sure I know an O2 sensor is out on it so i'm gunna start there but thanks for the info

It might be the timing is off or that there is not enough volts going to your injection pump I had the same thing happen to my 98 and it runs great after I fixed those things
