    Car ran Great when i first got it. Then about a month later, when i would drive down the interstate, it would pop. Almost like it was backfiring.
    Then when i would pull up to a light, or when i put her in reverse, she will idle down really low to about 200 rpm and jump back up or die.
    So i got her tuned up the other day. thought maybe something was off in timeing, or maybe my fuel pump or injector. They said no, and it was idleng low or dieing, so i took her home. 2 days later, she is doing it again. Maybe my alternator. I went ahead and cleaned out my fuel system, so i know it's not that.

    Is it throwing a CE light? Kind of sounds like a vacuum leak initially, but it's hard to say with the little information you've given here. You might also try posting over on You'll get a lot more people seeing the post over there than you will here...
