Car has run great now for nearly two years, daily driver. My issue could be related to the cold but I'm not sure. New plugs, wires, distrib cap/button.

Okay I start the car(cold start in the morning) and it idles fine, on my way through the neighborhood, every time I come to a stop it start acting up. The exhaust almost makes a gurgle sound as it seems to almost stall. It never does, idle isn't all that eratic but just seems a little starved for gas or something. I pull out and its as smooth as silk. I run it up to 70-80 all the time with no issues, by the time I get to work or leave for lunch its fine. Could this be the IAC. Its about the only thing I haven't checked(replaced). Fuel filter is fairly new as well. This started about 1 1/2 months ago as the temp really started to get cold.

Try the easiest thing first-
My 85 V6 would stall going from Park to Drive- I added an additional ground wire per $Rich$ 's post and problem resolved.
