Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

One of the most common causes for this issue here is carbon build up in the throttle body itself.This carbon build up causes the throttle plate to stick as well as when the throttle plate goes to a closed rest position this can cause air flow issues for idling when slowing down causing the vehicle to want to stall here.

What you can do is to remove the air filter inlet housing tube from the throttle body and take a shop rag or similar and wipe out the throttle body bore and bore plate to clean off the carbon opening the plate by hand to clean the inside as best as possible.Use carburetor or brake cleaner on the rag itself when wiping this out.
