My 96 has been sitting for a while. I charged the battery, and decided to drive it to work today. I work 1 mile from home. Morning commute was fine. This afternoon, as soon as I got out on the road it went about 1/4 mile and suddenly shut off. I had it towed home. At first it would start if you hold the pedal to the floor. once it started and you let off the pedal it would idle, but as soon as you touch the pedal it would shut down. Now it will start with the pedal to the floor, but as soon as you let off the key, it stalls.
Any ideas?

I checked fuel pressure, spark, timing, etc. No codes and all checks were good. # days later the car started and ran perfect. Occasionally it would stall and most of the time it would not re start unless it sat for a while. Figured it out today. Coolant temp sensor was intermittently dropping to -5 and -10 degrees. Connector was clean and tight, so replaced the sensor and so far so good...
