SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: car stalls when you come to a stop

I have a 1991 pontiac 6000 that had the same problem a few years ago. In fact, this problem is common on the cutlass and other similar cars. The most common root cause is a bad TCC (torque converter clutch) solenoid. This part is fairly inexpensive to replace (approx. $20 part) and is located in the side pan on the transmission. You will also need a side pan gasket and some fluid to replace any that leaks. The TCC is designed to lock up when the engine is warm and cruising in high gear (this saves gas like having another gear). If the TCC solenoid is bad, it can cause the TC to stay locked up when you slow down. This is similar to using the brake to stop a manual shift car without depressing the clutch. The result is a car that shakes a bit then quits running.

A quick way to confirm this is the problem is to unplug the connector on the front edge of the transmission housing (about one foot behind the radiator). This will prevent the TCC from locking. You will also notice that the speedometer does not work while this is disconnected so be careful to stay under the speed limit.

SOURCE: my car idle dips to low RPM at a stop i give it gas it dies

Is the engine light on? Check the air inlet hose between the throttle body & MAF sensor for cracks or leaks. Try unplugging the MAF & see if there is any difference

I do not know what year your truck is but I would remove the ignition module from inside the distributer and remove the rotor so you would have access to the module. Take the module to oreillys and have them test it. Sometimes they make the car act like the car is running out of gas.

Stalls at stop when at peak temp


My problem wasn't the O2 sensor. Finally threw a code...106 then 107 and 108...Map Sensor and circuit. Checked the wires and found no issue. Then tried to clean the nipple where the hose from the MAP sensor went into the exhaust below the throttle body and I couldn't get a pipe cleaner in there so I sprayed some wal-mart break cleaner in it and continued to attempt a breakthrough and sure enough it cleaned out and now no issue at all. Yay me!!!
