It happened to me today on the freakn freeway in bad traffic and construction. im glad my girl didnt go to work today or i would have been on the news. ok here is the solution to the problem: first clean out butterfly valve and intake manifold. next take a look at your spark plugs youre gona have to replace them cause the main culprit is vacuum lines!!! i had 2 bad lines cause it was factory lines. they sucked up too much air into two of my combustion chambers and fouled out my plugs. so check the vacuum lines. cost me 200 bucks to pay a mechanic. but now i know so i can fix it myself. i have a 1999 chevy malibu 4 cylinder hope this helps

It is likely that the idle air control valve or the throttle position sensor is bad on the vehicle this could cause the hard starts and the idle situation at stops.
