My pontiac engine get dead every time i release the gas pedal or slowing down even in neutral, i tried to look for idle adjustment but i dont know where it is located. also sometimes the gear is stock up...

Don't try to adjust the idle speed. Very very bad thing to do. Have your idle air control unit checked. Probably shot, or carbonrd up. Also have your throttle body cleaned.As far as the shifting goes, have the shifter interlock checked. These are both things that are better left to pros, as the diagnosis requires special equipment, and information.

My car shakes at idle speed of 800 rpm, doesn't

old engine mounts can cause that problem, even if they look ok sometimes

Idle control

tps (throttle position sensor) controls the idle and the ideal idle is around 700-850

High idle

I have the same exact problem, but with idling roughly between 700 and sometimes upwards of 2000+ RPM.  I don't have the problem you do as far as the engine heat goes, but I definitely feel the tug, hear the engine sounding bogged down at stops, and when in neutral, finding it idling extremely high.  My check engine light had come on just this past month (with this problem occuring for a little over a year now), and it turns out I have a bad Throttle Positioning Sensor, which my mechanic says can cause the high idling.  I'm replacing the sensor this weekend with a dealer part, which I got for $102, so I'll post again once it's done to let you know if that fixed the problem or not.
Hope this helps,

Turns off

Tach is short for tachometer and is a device that tells you the speed of the engine, generally in RPM X 1000. A typical speed for a 6 cylinder engine is about 600 to 1000 for idle in Park/Neutral, and 500-800 in Drive or Reverse. This was if you have this on your dash, and can get me some numbers, I can better assist you...accordianman
