I asked about the fuel grade because low grade fuel can cause backfiring in these engines causing carbon buildup in the throttle body. As the carbon builds up it clogs both the idle air control and the throttle plate. The throttle plate is machined to fit perfectly with the body so some air can pass while it's closed, if that space is full of carbon then it won't let air pass, choking the engine at closed throttle

I have a 1991 Cadillac DeVille that had stalling issues in the first week I bought it. It spent the next 2 weeks in the shop getting fixed up. Replaced the fuel pump and fixed a sensor in the engine. Ran fine when I got it back but started having the same symptoms again and now its still doing it. It stalls at lights, while I'm turning, and while it idles and backs up.
