1989 Pontiac 6000 3.8, mileage: 139,000. My daughter's car has a habit of dying when she comes to a stop. It starts right back up and idles fine. I changed the fuel filter two months ago and it ran fine until a week ago. At the time I changed the filter I checked for codes and had none. Now I have a code 3. What that code is I’m not sure the engine is a muti-port fuel injected engine. This all happens when the car is fully warmed up. Any ideas?

Try servicing the fuel injection. Clean the carbon deposits from the throttle bore and idle passage. We are not sure what code "3" is either. Most code numbers start at 10.
