My auto LPT has this stalling problem that happens ONLY (only occasionally, but very irritating), after cruising at highway speeds (>90 kmh) for some time, and when it comes to a stop e.g. at the red lights, the engine rpm will drop very low and it dies). It will start again right away without problem, and the stall does not usually happen again for some time. The car otherwise drives perfectly.

So I've had this gremlin for years, looked for vacuum leaks, clean AIC, throttle valve, tried changing AMM etc etc to no avail. The problem disappeared after replacing the aging distributor rotor and cap!

This is to share my experience. Anyone can explain this?

Do you mean that you had the problem for years, but it is now cured since you changed the distributor cap and rotor arm? Both should be changed annually when you service the car. If they were on there for years no wonder you had problems - I'm amazed you got it started at all.
