1993 buick century starts jumping when you stop, engine dies, but will start.

This could be a sign that the torque converter is starting to fail. A torque converter does pretty much for an automatic transmission what a clutch does for a standard transmission. When either fails, when coming to a stop, the engine will die. For more on a torque converter and its functions, please go here

My Buick Century with a 2.5L is stalling at lights and stop signs. when restarted and put in drive it stalls and won't stay running? Any help?

The TCC solenoid in the transmission needs to be replaced. This is a common problem that requires removal of the side cover of the transmission. You can unplug the wires at the front of the transmission and drive it until you get it fixed but you will not have over- drive lock- up convertor. This will result a drop in fuel mileage,
