Re: 258 DIES WHEN I COMES TO STOP WITH ENGINE COLD
My 83 did the same thing and I tried everything but nothing worked. Finally I did the Nutter Computer ByPass and it worked. Drove it like that for 2 yrs and just put a Motorcraft 2100 and HEI on it. That is the best improvement I think I could have done to the 258. If you want the Instructions to do the bypass let me know and I will give you the URL or E them to you.
