I'm dying for help!!! I just recently purchased a 73 Impala and drove it 4 hours back home. On the way home when I would come to a complete stop at a stop sign/light, the car would cut off but fire right back up. This issue was very seldom at first but now its happening more frequently. Can anyone help me locate my fuel filter or give me some other areas to focus on??? Btw the motor is a 350.

Try increasing the idle speed. This can introduce problems of its own, so stop if trans engagement gets too violent.

Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.

That and it also could be a faulty Carb Solenoid. But try to increase it first as Ray has stated (turn the bolt with a wrench).

Fuel Filter will be right at the Carb (under the big nut at the fuel inlet). Use extra care when re-installing it (they like to leak).

fidling with the idle speed is not the way to go in my opinion.
my toughts go to either a vacuum leak, fuel problem, faulty solenoid, choke not working properly or electrical problem check the cap rotor spark plug leads etc
a faulty spark plug lead will work good when driving but can lead to trouble when the engine speed drops and that goes for the cap rotor too
