distributor problem? maybe a cracked router or something. does it bog before it shuts off or does it just drop RPM's until 0?

yes!!!!

don't touch the idle adj. screw.. and if you do there is a proper way to set it which involves un-plugging a sensor..

ya i dont think its a big deal if he posted here first. it shouldnt be an expensive problem as long as your mechanic can troubleshoot the problem quickly... from what i've heard i think its a distributor problem.
