Can someone pleases help me? I'm in a
new city trying to start a new life and don't

Sounds like a dirty or stuck IAC (Idle Air Control) valve. HTH. -Jim
It could be anything from the fuel pump to a clogged air filter. When did it begin this problem? How far have you drove it since the problem began?
It began back in March of this year. I drive it everyday but it has never left me on side of the road. I drove it back to home town which is 100 miles from where I'm at now, and my mechanic said it wasn't my fuel pump since i made it that far.
This may sound crazy but turn on your AC. You have a device that increases the idle when the AC is on ... if it works then perhaps you can pull the fuse from the AC clutch (under the hood is a fuse box and the cover identifies the fuse)
I suspect you may have a partially clogged catalytic converter or the IAC that Js mentioned
Thank you very much. When I turn the AC on the idle gets really really low and it cuts off
I did recommend that you disable the AC by pulling the fuse
Sounds like fuel injection problem
Throw some fuel injection cleaner in the tank. Also r u using high test gas or regular ?
I'm using the plus because it can't take regular or it will run terrible. But when the problem first arose I used fuel injection cleaner and the problem was still there.
I own a 92 Seville I have had some fuel injection problem ended up changing the # 6 injector also ck you're filters €air &fuel
