Here's the verdict. Forgot that I had removed the check engine light bulb awhile back so that I could pass inspection. Engine was running fine so I figured what the heck. When engine stall problem appeared I put bulb back in and check engine light was indeed on. Mechanic did the diagnostic and it threw a code (Forgot number). Told me it was either bad O2 sensors or bad Ignition ECU. Since O2 sensors were replaced @ 750 miles ago we ruled that out. THey said a NEW ECU is NOT an option since noone makes them anymore. THey called LR Dealer and were quoted between $3500 to $4300 for a rebuilt one. The mechanic thought this was a mistake but that's what is was after a double check.
I found some used ones but I am hesitant to do this because the ECU that I have is a used one from a RR.

Anybody know who rebuilds ECU's. 94 D90 Part # AMR3729 14CUX 80506A

Ah, I and a bunch or other people will sell you a used ECU for under $100. RRC from 1990ish through mid 1995, DI 94-95, D110, D90 94-95 all work.

PS, it is not the ECU.

I would bet o2 sensor before ecu. Yeah you can buy them all day for 85 shipped.

Where can I get them that cheap. If its plug and play I could afford to try one of those (as long as it really works) and rule out the ECU. My original ECU got water in it from the original owner I think. Do you still think it could be the O2 sensors since they're practically brand new? Today they told me those sensors tend to have a pretty long life. I'm hesitant to do that cuz they're $250 each. Does it matter if you put an ECU from a LR with an Auto Tranny into a 94 manual?
