When the temp outside is at or over 90 degrees the car lacks power and stalls with stop and go traffic. I have tried to bleed fuel lines near injectors and there appears to be as much air as gas in the lines. Not sure what is not working right. Was told it may have something to do with fuel return lines. The motor is the 3.8 v-6

Ok, I will have to wait till the outside temp gets over 90 again. If it helps after it sits for an hour it is usually driveable for a bit.

Mhpautos, I have changed the O2 sensors and have not yet had a stall again.

Ok, was not expecting that, that is not the typical 02 failure symptom, hopfully that will be it, let me know if you still have a problem.
