Re: '92 8v... Takes forever to start in morning, and dies in traffic.... (lil' Stumpy)

vacuum leaks would be my guess, mine only dies on idle when one of those suckers has fallen out. Look around your airbox and intake, there will be a series of small hoses, those are the ones that always give me problems.

only if they are letting air in past the MAF sensor, which it doesn't sound like they are. My car would always die at first, but once running it was fine, it reacted that way because once the vacuum was strong(engine running for a while), a small leak in those hoses didn't adversely affect it.
