Better go back and have the boys retune it. Most likely it is the throttle butterfly flap/valve in the intake hose which is dirty and needs to be cleaned. so called "tune ups" are pretty useless nowadays.

It sounds like one winding in the alternator is not working, so at low idle it is not providing a smooth full charge to the battery and the gauge is indicating this. Repair or replace alternator.

The tuning and timing of the car must be reset. The slow speed tuning is so low that it goes down when the drive is selected.

1997 Honda Civic dies while driving but will restart

It sounds like your car needs a good solid tune up. It sounds like the injectors are fighting to get fuel so the slower you go the chances of you stalling is even greater. And the faster you go the fuel system is just getting just enough fuel that the car needs to keep running.....I hate to say this but it sounds like you need a tune up.
