Possible throttle position sensor(TPS).Does the idle even out if you bring the RPMs up to say 1000?All engines spend most of their time at idle,that area wears out in a TPS first.By barely increasing the engine speed you can get past that dead spot and drive your car normally.Of course that doesn't fix your situation but it helps you understand why it happens and how to continue to drive your car until you can replace it.Duralast / Throttle Position Sensor Part Number:
TPS140 is only $33 at your local auto parts store.Good Luck!

Check for vacuum leaks.

Have someone feather the gas pedal while you listen carefully to the engine. If the leak is bad enough you'll probable hear it.
More than likely, it's either a vacuum hose or the o-rings under the intake manifold.

Hope this helps!

If t dies hard - feeling like the trani is not disigaging when you stop - it could be a electronic part inside the trani.. This part tells the stall converter to kick in at a stop.. Not super expensive to fix.. But best done by a trani shop....

Car stalling after turns on, dies while driving


First of all you should check your transimision fluid in your gearbox, if the car is automatic, and refill until the proper sign.
Utherwise you should check the clutch if it works properly, maybe you have to adjust the clutches gap.

Sounds like your IAC (idle air control) motor needs to be replaced. If you are driving on the Interstate/freeway/highway for a bit and then get off, the car dies when your coming to a stop right?
