Re: Engine falters in 1st gear

I've had similar problems with my '81 Coupe. In my case, it seems tied to low
RPMs, e.g., rounding a corner in second gear and getting down around 2K. On
accelaration, the engine cuts out for a split second causing a major lurch.
I've also noticed that while idling at about 1K, if I gently depress the
accelerator, the engine stumbles and the RPMs drop to about 500 for a second.
This happens about 50% of the time. Maybe a vacuum leak?
