Hello,

I have a 1996 Contour, 103,000 miles, very well maintained and serviced. About 30,000 miles ago we started to notice the car stalling at a stop light or when turning. While driving with the AC on or just after driving, when sitting at a stop light there will be a smell of very lean fuel, as well the engine idle will fluctuate up and down until the engine dies. Also, while driving say on the freeway, you get to an offramp or even while just driving on a blvd, when you let off the gas, the car will stall and have to be restarted. This will continue usually until you get to where you are going.

Any suggestions?
