Alright, I did a bit of a search, and I just got done reading Felix's post so I'm going to check on the belt during lunch, but I was wondering, what would cause a DI to suddenly stall out? This just started recently in the past 2-3 days. It stalled out in the morning two days ago, and then again today, only difference being that today it stalled out two times in a row after I came to a stop, and when I pulled into my space at work, the tach needle dropped to below 500, and felt like it was about to stall out.

Any ideas on what the cause may be? I'm guessing it might be a fuel issue, but what do y'all think?

First thing I think about when that happens is the infamous stepper motor - pull it, clean it, and see if this helps. Also see if someone running the same engine will let you borrow it for a few minutes. Your fuel efficiency should also drop off pretty badly with a bad idle air control valve.

Other things to look for could be fuel pressure related (clogged filter, pump on the fritz, a relay, fuel injectors), or electrical (plugs, wires, distributor, coil).

Let us know how it goes...

Good luck!

Oh, and isn't it time you switched your avatar to something, say, for Valentine's?
