sounds like your fuel pump, but it could be a number of things. could be your fuel filter, idle speed control or idle air control. i had something similar do that to my buddys 91 town car and it turned out to be the idle air control. check those parts. it might be one of those.

let me ask you this, when you start the car in park, does it run nice or does it sound like it wants to stall as soon as you start it??? let me know.
