Thank you for the VIN!
Have you checked for codes in the computer?
Have you checked for any air/vacuum leaks under the hood?

Check engine lite is not on.... Nothing seems to be leaking ...starts but when you take foot off gas it stalls
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.
Ok, the most common cause of this stalling condition at idle is a bad/lazy idle air control motor located on the throttle body. You will need to replace this to fix your stalling condition.
