Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1990 honda accord. It has 220,000 miles. I have a MAJOR stalling
problem. Mostly happens when I am stopped but when it is going it stays on.
Check Engine light on & pulled Code 43 - fuel supply system. I have a good
battery and alternator- got them checked about 2 months ago.

I have changed:

-All 4 spark plugs
-fuel filter
-fuel pump
-Ignition coil
-Cleaned Idle Air Control Valve
