SOURCE: 88 pontiac 6000 shudders and stalls after approx. 30 min. driving

What was replaced in the tune up? Usually the coil paks cause these types of issues. Also fuel filter or fuel pump will allow enough fuel to start and sputter like you describe.

SOURCE: 99 durango, stalled out when I was driving down

On the fuel rail there is a shrader valv, push it down while some one is cranking and see if you have any fuel, if not then I suspect that the fuel pump is dead.

88' sundance efi stalls at stop lights and signs, also when having to slow down to make a turn. seems to run fine all other times.

Remove and clean IAC ( idle air control ) motor and port it comes out of with throttle body spray cleaner , then retry it. If that cures it for a while and it starts to act up again, replace the IAC motor.motor1258_10.gif

87 Plymouth Sundance keeps stalling!

If you take the air intake hose off at the throttle body inlet, and when it won't start, try spraying WD-40 into the front of throttle body, with plate open, and then try again. If it starts for a second or 2, it's fuel related problem. Try that and let me know the results, and get back to me. Use the WD-40 same as you would quick start spray. What engine is in that , 6 cyl, or 4 cyl. ?

Fuel pressure intermittently drops causing sputter and die.

check for 12v constant at your fuel pump if you are not getting that replace your relay.
if you are getting 12 volts at your fuel pump the fuel pump is possible to run tuel it gets warm then shut down to a lower rpm I would then replace the fuel pump

Stall as soon as oil light came on..92 sundance

I don't think a 92 sundance will shut the fuel pump down when the oil pressure is low, but it might. Can you get it to run on carb cleaner. If it is oil pressure, the car should start then run a few seconds and die. Have you checked the timing belt? If it broke the distributor will stop turning which would stop the oil pump.
