SOURCE: My 1998 Olds 88 has been stalling and running rough.

Check and clean the IAC valve. Idle Control Valve. Use brake cleaner or carburater cleaner . Remove the duct work from the air filter assembly. It is located just inside . Run the engine at 1200 rpms and spray the valve. The valve can also be removed and cleaned.

My 2007 Chevy Silverado loses power when I come to a complete stop no engine lights appear but if I turn off the truck the problem goes away for awhile .

Loss of power, but no mention of rough or inability to idle (including stalling). If those additional symptoms are part of the problem, check for a vacuum leak to the intake. Listen for hissing or sucking noises near air hoses. Look for loose, cracked, or broken air hose connections. Check PCV valve...Cheap to replace, could be sticking, then loosen after truck sitting with engine off. A vacuum leak will not give any light indications, and vehicle will seem to run normal when applying gas, but will want to stall or run rough (or want to stall) when at idle or sometimes when taking foot off gas when slowing down.

My sons 92 probe will back up a little then it stalls, no problem going forward

Check the large hose between the air filter and the engine. Sometimes if there is a crack in the hose, it will cause a air leak.

Replaced PCV Hose due to vacuum leak, idle correct now, no errors,now when placed into gear, idle drops to engine stall. 1998 Navigator 5.4L.

If it is the same engine design as the F-150 ( think the '98 was still the 2V V-8 ) it could be the IAC ( Idle Air Control ) is gummed up.

The F-150 it is mounted on the back of the Throttle Body ( have to take off the plastic throttle body cover to see it ), held on with 2 bolts with 8mm heads ( could be 9mm ??).

Worth taking a look, also take a look at the VAC line to the back of the throttle body, and check that the IAC connector did not get unplugged or the wires damaged from the other vac line change

Unstable idle

You will need to check the Mass airflow sensor and the Idle position sensor.
