Question about 1994 Pontiac Grand Am
I have 1994 Pontiac Grand AM 2.3. After the car has warmed up and driving it awhile it starts to shake when slowing down and when almost at a stop it stops running. when trying to startit it will start but quit when put in gear. I have to wait about 15 to 30 minuates then start it and it will stay running til it gets to warm again
Hey, Bro! Try checking for vacuum leaks. Have a friend whose 94 grand am 2.3 did the same thing. Engine would shake violently when stopping... So vacuum leaks are most likely the problem. The brakes don't work good when this happens because the brake booster operates on vacuum. in fact alot of stuff works on vacuum... on hers the PCV valve hose totally wasted along with a couple other leaks! If you can't get it fixed real soon you can get it to go after stopping by stepping on the brake, revving the engine a little before placing it in gear, then slowly let out on the brake. This keeps the RPM's high enough to keep the engine running... careful though... don't rev it too high.

Sounds like a your tie rod ends or ball joints are bad. as far as it turning off in gear means that the fuel injection is screwed up which means its a gas problem which is a intake problem with wrong fuel mixture or even a vacuum leak.

If it's an automatic transmission I'd suspect it may not be shifting out of overdrive and this is causing the shaking and stalling. There is a plug on the transmission that can be unplugged and vehicle can be driven without any damage. I've been told it's a common problem with these cars. Ask your local mechanic about it.
