1991 300SE stalling

My friend's 300 SE is stalling out while driving. I was driving it today and I hit a speed barrier very slowly and it almost stalled out. Then, a few minutes later, I was driving on the parkway and slowed down at a traffic light and it stalled again. I put it in park, restarted it and it did fine the rest of the way back. The owner said it has been doing this sporadically. It smells like it's flooding when it quits. Opinions please.

He found out it was the EHA valve. He bought one at the dealer and is going to put it on this weekend. It is leaking causing the stalling problem. He's going to go ahead and replace the rotor and cap while he's at it.

Well, his car is at it again. Stalled at a traffic light, sunday. It restarted a few hours later. He says it's as if it's flooding. Fuel Pump Relay? Suggestions?

There should be a leak in the intake, most probably one of the rubber or plastic hoses.
