Rough running and stalling sometimes

I've got a 94 EB that was running great up until yesterday. Out of no where it sputtered then stalled. Almost like a vacuum leak, but i dont hear any sucking sounds and I checked all the hoses. Nothing seems out of the ordinary. It will turn over and start then idle real rough then die. After about 20 minutes of trying to get it started, it started. Ran fine until i came to a light and after sitting for about a minute or 2 it sputtered and died again, but started right back up. This morning before i went out i let it idle for a while and it was fine. After driving all day long i stopped at a friends house and it would just turn over and sputter til it stalled. The gas pedal has no effect on keeping it running. I tried tapping it, pumping it, and flooring it, and it did nothing to help the problem. Any ideas?

Check your fuel delivery.

Check the MAF sensor and the throttle position sensor

Could very well be an issue with the IAC.

Good luck ....
