I don't blame the mechanics! I lifted the hood on one, and closed it. Z cars are awesome, but they're their own special breed. Try googling z car specialists. They do exist, and they can get your baby back purring like a z does so well.

here a some things you could try think I had similar problem. check the O2 sensor and all vacuum lines. Try it with O2 sensor unpluged it will run rich but it wont stall.

I had the very same issue with mine, Checked several things out...all but the fuel filter. I replaced that and it seems to have corrected it.
