1988 Dodge Omni 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 85,000 miles
My vehicle very recently has started to stall at stop lights, and signs, once or twice as I go around a corner at slow speed. If the car stalls it used to start right back up, now if it stalls it is more difficult to start up. I have recently replaced the pcv valve and all of the tubes that lead from the carberator to the valve and the elbow from that cam cover to the pcv valve- the tubes were brittle and broke when I was trying to check the valve. It seems to work better when it hasn't been used for the weekend, or if it is started ahead of time and let to " warm up". I was told by a mechanic to use carborater/fuel injector cleaner in my gas tank and to clean the carorator my self. Other problems with the car (listed in case they might help dtermine the probelm.) I have an oil leak coming from the oil pan seal, the exhaust is broken before it reaches the muffler but is patched more or less sufficiently. If there is a good likely hood for the culprit or even a good method in which to check the vehicle any advice would be greatly appreciated.
