I experienced the exact same problem with mine. What I discovered is that the overdrive torque converter was not disengaging when I was coming up to a stop, thus making it stall. 2 fixes: First one is to disconnect the plug out by the radiator for the converter lock up solenoid, but this is not a good idea as you will no longer have overdrive. Second, (and best): Go to your Ponitac parts dept and tell them your problem; they will sell you a new converter lock-up solenoid that has been updated to correct this problem. Pontiac is aware of this and the new part makes a world of difference. Seems that they have added a small filter to keep dirt out of the solenoid, which is the main cause of the problem. Very common issue; easy to fix.

Ford Excurtion will start normal, but stall when putting in gear (reverse) or braking. When re-starting it runns ok until next braking.

I have a 94 jeep cherokee with a in- line 6. its stalling out and sometimes starts up before it even rolls to a stop or sometimes like now when im sitting here at work waiting for my wife cause it stalled...

After it stalls, have someone listen at the tank to see if the fuel pump is running when you turn the key on. If you can't hear it, it has failed (they overheat and bind, when cooled down they work 'till they again get hot). if the pump is running, likely the crank position sensor (11 o'clock on the bellhousing looking from rear) has failed....symptom is pretty much identical.

Go out in AM, car is cold, starts and runs fine. Drive short distance, stop and restart, runs fine, idles fine. Drive about 8 miles at 50-55 mph, pull up at a red light, when speed gets down to ~25-30...

The EGR valve is unserviceable which causes a bad or insufficient fuel control for em-missions......Hope this helps you out........EGR valves are not very expensive.

My Pontiac Grand Prix is also a 99, it has 216,+ thousand miles on it, it runs great, idles good, I need to replace the oxygen sensor tho as it shuts off on me while driving or sometimes coming to a stop. You might try checking the fuel filter and pump as well.
