Default 88 acura legend stops if i dont asselerate it, why?

My car started turning off as soon as i take my foot of the gas . I changes the gas filter but no change. Then it worked good for a day on its own. But out of nowher it started doing the same thing

Hi this is caused by engine wear. when an engine gets old the tolerances within it get to the stage where it will not run slowly and not race either otherwise that results in a loud bang and it dies completely.

a 1988 car is now 25 years old it has lasted well considering it was only meant to last 10 years.
