Did you check all your vacuum hoses and also if you did not change out your PCV valve, I would highly recommend replacing it.

Ok this sounds exactly like what my 89 gt does it drives fine but after idling for awhile it dies, Idk if it is the fuel pump getting weak or what. So what is everyone's suggestion to solve this problem
