I have a 95 formula that when it warms up you can hear the idling sound louder and wants to stall out when at a stop sign or a red light, does anyone know the cause?

the car has a brand new alternator on it and a gatorback belt, and when this happens the oil pressure is really low and the check gauges light comes on just before it stalls out, and then it starts right back up again, i dont believe its a fuel pump because of it starting up without problems, can it be another pulley that runs with the alternator?

Check spark plugs and wires and coil. Then alternator then Fuel lines and pump If all that is still good check to see if your cat is clogged Also it is a good idea while your in your engine to clean your throttle body and intake a little with some spray and toothbrush.
