Step 1. Have it read for codes, even if the check engine light is NOT on the computer will have stored information and codes. Discount auto stores will read codes for no fee. write them down. OR Better yet find a DBR III to scan with. Regards

I have a scan tool and scanned the only stored and pending codes were for the egr circulation and the catalytic converters but the cats are deleted


What are the codes? post them, NO, misfire codes? GOOD coil pack... then you must be getting spark..Whats the engines vacuum at idle? and whats the fuel pressure? you all these things, that need to be checked..hows the fuel trim are the hegos slow or not operational? etc..EGR, will cause rough idle or stall BUT, allow a restart.

P0403 exhaust gas recirculating control circuit that's all brand new coil wires and ngk plugs gapped to .040 like I said car ran great for about 2 minits then shut off by itself with no misfires and I attempt to start it and only cylinder 4 out of 2,4, and 6 fires that all great fuel pressure fuel passes through Injectors
