2001 Sable seems like it is going to stall at a stop

When at a stop for around 20 seconds the car acts like it is going to stall. When I take my foot off the brake or tap the gas it returns to normal.

Had the same problem on a Taurus. There is a small control module near the distributor that was my prob. Looks like a "C" with connectors on both ends. $200 part, but fixed the problem.
