I just picked up a pretty decent '91 240 wagon and she seems to be the perfect daily driver/utility vehicle, but the darn thing stalls on a warm engine. Starts up fine cold, but then can't keep idle when warm, particularly when the tranny is in park. If I'm quick enough to get her into gear before it stalls, then she's fine until I turn her off and start her again. Is this a common problem and a quick/inexpensive fix? I already had a tune-up with fresh plugs, wires, etc. But that did not aleviate the problem and neither does injector cleaner. Any tips or suggestions? Would much appreciated. Thanks

Have you had the throttle body and idle motor cleaned?It will stay running even at idle as long as you get it in gear before it stalls?
