I have literally told you how to start, and provided a link to get you started. What am I missing?

The other suggestions; check for spark and fuel (get a pressure gauge from an auto parts store; either rent or buy) when it won't start -are good ones too.

I spoke with the Corvette specialist I know today. It said it may be a coil problem. It is going to him on Thursday. I will post the results.

It is quite unlikely that it's a coil problem. It's far more likely that it is an Ignition Control Module problem. It's too bad you didn't take the first basic steps to see for yourself. Still, I'm interested in seeing the results.

What, if I may ask, makes him a specialist? In many places I have been to, it is the guy who draws short straw and has to work with old junk.

Does it stall while driving, OR does it stall when idling?
  • Stalling while driving...could be fuel filter issue, or ignition
  • Stalling primarily when idling may still be ignition, which a (real) scanner would identify, BUT it could be injectors damaged by alcohol laden fuels (prior to 93 when that issue was addressed) which a scanner will NOT show. (That will require you to measure resistance of the individual injectors...when they are at operating temperature ONLY. [injectors normally read either 12 ohms .0.2 ohms, or 14 ohms 0.2. injectors reading only 10 ohms or lower indicates clear and present failure in progress. If one fails, the rest will follow. Replace them all with stainless steel injectors that are alcohol tolerant. Jon @ FIC can fix you right up!}).
