I had the same problem with my civic, my distributor had gone bad. It wasnt lubricating properly, and eventually it died and I got a new one. There may be a break in one of the vacuum lines or rubber tubes that come off the rochester 2se carburetor or one of the many other vacuum lines. I know-I had my truck shut off and not crank up again due to a dry rotted rubber vacuum line which sometimes are hard to see or find. Have you tried replacing your air filter and breather filter. I was having a problem with my '84 S10. It would not stay running unless you kept your foot on the accelerator, especially in the mornings after it had set for a while. I simply changed these two filters and changed the air temp. sensor, (located inside the breather) and now all is well. It only cost me around $30.00.
