I had the same problem with my 99 Subaru Forester and it was caused by oil leaking and getting into the spark plugs. We only needed to remove & clean one of the plugs and then we were running smoothly again. Very well could not be what your problem is but it's worth a shot mentioning.

Disconnect the air hose going to the Idle Air contorl Valve and plug the line with a small screw.
if the problem of the idle goes away and the car runs smooth and doesn't stall at stops, it's the air control valve housing sensor, it's basicall the whole unit thats no good. If it still stalls, clean the throttle body housing and all parts in where the air gets sucked in, put a rag underneath to keep the dirt from dripping down, start the car with somebody inside the car reving up the engine to 2000rpm's to 2500rpm's, then spray in to the throttle with burst of throttle cleaner and you will see the gunk keep coming out, you may have to change your spark plugs after this is done also.
Good Luck BigWillie

Idle air control valves short out all the time on these models. You can ohm the motor to check it, but the down side to a shorted iac valve is that it shorts out the ecm if not repaired quickly. when the valve shorts, 12 volts is supplied directly to the ecm and burns the circuit board. The other option is the air flow meter, this is also a very common problem but typically a p0171/p0174 would be stored in self diag.

Every answer here is wrong. This has been driving people nuts for 15 years. The problem is the engine wiring harness which has a bend going past the right strut tower, Nissan had a service bulletin on this in September of 1999, Google it, it's in pdf.
