Low rpm issue

The Idle Air Controller would be one of the first suspects. Removal and cleaning with carburetor cleaner usually does the trick.

Air leaks or a bad coil (or some other part of your "spark" system such as plugs, distributor, plug wires) are other suspect areas. I just had a similar problem with low idle, stumbling idle, hesitation and dieing out of low RPMs ... and it turned out to be the coil:

Check your plugs for oil fouling from a bad plenum gasket . Do a visual inspection when doing the IAC
