Recently developed rough idle and stall '87 YJ w/i6

Hey all,

I'm sorry to post another rough idle thread but I've read through the pages iupon pages and haven't found anything tha exactly covers my idle issue.

I have an 87 Yj with the I6 non fuel injected. Until today she ran perfectly but on the way home she started stalling as when I hit the brakes and idleing rough at intersections. Rough and almost stalling.

When I'm going along she runs great. Just the stalling or near stall when I slow down to stop and the rough idle.

Here's the bit that I couldn't find anywhere. When I reverse and hit the brakes the idle goes up and she doesn't stall and in fact runs a little high for a sec before sputtering again.

I have some ideas and I'm going to check some things tomorrow but I'd really like to hear from some of the folks with more expirience with these things than I have.

Thanks in advance!
