Why FPR or MAF?

My guess would be the ISV/AAR ... or perhaps the throttle body/TPS is
sticking/adjusted improperly such that the idle switch is not turning on ...

ISTR hearing some problems with automatic transmission loading the engine
down and causing stalling, but I don't remember the details.

Hey guys,
Have an inttermittent idle problem on my 90V8Q. It starts up fine and
stays running 75% of the time. The other 25% it dies and won't stay
running. I usually have to keep the foot on the gas to keep it
running. Then once Im rolling it's fine.

Think the FPR is going south? Maf?
It's not thowing any codes.

Any ideas?
