    95 sedan de ville, 4.9, drives excellently until engine dies at low speeds,

    then it restarts immediately. does this at low speeds, never above 30mph and usually when letting off gas at red light, turning a corner.

    Does this happen only with 1/4 tank of gas or less? The early '90's Devilles are known for tank baffles coming loose. Turn the corner and the fuel sloshes to one side, the pump sucks air and the engine stalls. There are 2 ways to fix it.
    1. Replace the tank.
    2. Keep it above 1/4 tank.

    I thought the baffle problem was the earlier devilles? 95 has the same tank setup that the rest of the Devilles STS and Eldos had. But it does sound like it, unless it's just plain extremely low on gas.

    It WAS on the early Devilles, but I don't know exactly when that problem was fixed. I'm just taking a stab based on his symptoms.
