My 1990 chevrolet corsica is really starting to get under my skin. It's a 2.2L 4cl. When you start it up you have to drive it almost immediately, otherwise, if you let it sit and warm up, it want's to lose power and stall out. Especially when putting it into drive or reverse. While the car is driving everything is fine, unless I have to slow down (to make a turn or something), then it wants to start to lose power and I have to put it in neutral and feather the gas to try and get the RPMs back up. Then I have to put it back in gear but sometimes it wants to stall out. The thing is though that my car starts back up every time. I recently purchased a brand new ECM (control module for my ignition) and that didn't help at all. I'm thinking it's either coil packs, fuel pump, or a sensor. I haven't gotten it on a computer yet but i'm not exactly sure if it'll pinpoint my problem. Also it gets worse and worse every day and on very cold days it seems to run even worse. This is really bugging me. Do you have a suggestion?
