When you press on your brake pedal does it make any "squishy noises" "snorts" "mouse squeeky noises" "vacuum noise". Your brake booster (60$ or so used) may need replacing. The vacuum pump from your booster takes a lot of power from your engine if not working properly. When the the brake booster is not working properly, say having a torn diaphragm, your car will idle very poorly; when you press on the brake you may even get high revs; and because there is too much energy loss, your engine will sputter and shut off when you leave it idling.

Look into it. It's an easy fix. Remember to move your brake pipes gentlyyyyy though.

I am looking for a wiring diagram so I can install a remote car starter. If you have anything for me let me know.
