'91 EB stalling a lot

My '91 Eddie Bauer has had a long history of frequent stalling (especially
after it's been running for a few moments) at stop signs / lights and even
when turning corners accompanied by low mileage (10-12 mpg instead of the
usual 16-18 in mixed driving). The shop has replaced the computer, O2
sensor, and a coolant sensor, which appeared to help for a while but now the
problem is back. I had the engine rebuilt last month (at 200K, lots of
upper-engine noise, leaky head gasket, low oil pressure, and it turned out
that both heads were cracked as well) at a different shop (my usual repair
shop doesn't do rebuilds and I used the rebuilder they and others
recommended) and the problem hasn't gone away so it's bound to be a sensor
somewhere. I'm about to take it in to the rebuilder for the 500-mile oil
change / final checkup and would like to give him a crack at the stalling
problem as well. Any suggestions as to what we should look for?

Thanks,

Would that also account for the poor mileage?

Yes - mine dropped by 50%. Engine was running rich. Computer code was
that oxy sensor was reading rich.
Engine had no power and idle was very erratic.

Re: '91 EB stalling a lot

Thanks, that fits in with what the first shop thought (running rich). They
had replaced the O2 sensor a few years back but didn't replace it again as
the temp sensor seemed to fix it up.
