If the car is a carburator model, then you need proper carburetor setu. This is done by regulating air correction screw, idle mixture screw and idle speed screw.
The whole job should be done by a mechanic.
Check here for an example:CARBURETOR SET UP AND LEAN BEST IDLE ADJUSTMENT

Also replace spark plugs, check the fuel filter, and the air filter.

I would check the condition of fuel pump; If it is old mechanical type perhaps needs replace rubber diaphragm to increase efficiency at low engine revolutions.

Why does my 2001 isuzu tooper shuts off I stop at red light or stop signs?


If your mechanics say the mass air flow sensor, fuel pump and fuel filter is good then check your intake Manifold Gasket. It is a hard 1/4 inch thick plastic gasket that cracks frequently and causes sputtering when letting off your gas pedal and eventually lead to stalling at red lights and stop signs if cracked bad enough.

My 1994 buick regal gran sport jumps a lot when at a stop sign or red light, but when i accelerate the problem goes away. also when in park my RPM's drops extremely low and it sounds as if its goi


This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Car stalling after turns on, dies while driving


First of all you should check your transimision fluid in your gearbox, if the car is automatic, and refill until the proper sign.
Utherwise you should check the clutch if it works properly, maybe you have to adjust the clutches gap.
