Having problems with my 1998 Pontiac firebird. When I sit with the air on my car sometimes start to shake or even smoke. I don't know if it's the exhausts or something dealing with it breathing. Whatever...

A bunch of things can cause this.
It could be the engine idle speed is too low, can be caused by a faulty Idle Air Control valve. Watch the rev counter when it does it and see if it's very low. See if it rises when you turn off the air con. The air con puts a load on the engine which should be adjusted for by the IAC valve (automatically opens the throttle very slightly to keep the engine speed from getting too low).
Also possible to be fuel pressure, Mass Air Flow sensor, ignition coil, spark plugs or even a blocked air filter.
Is the check engine light on?
Try looking at Pontiac firebird forums. Google search firebird idle faults. Good luck.

The car runs then when you get to stop light it shuts down then you can start it just when the rpm is low it shuts off

The most common problem with stalling due to low rpms is the idle air control valve. this valve is what controls the idle and keeps the engine at the correct idle this is the first thing i would check and also make sure the throtlebody is clean, most of these type of problems are due to that valve good luck.

96 Neon idles a little too low it shuts off

This sound as if it may be the IAC or idle air control valve which is located just behind where the air intake hose attaches to the throttle body. This is a switch that tells the computer how fast the car should idle and adjust the air intake to keep the idle steady. If you go to one of the car part websites you can look up the IAC and see what it looks like for your particular vehicle. Autozone, Checker, Oreiley all have websites.
