If y ou are having a stalling problem when you stop or slow down, the problem is likely the idle air bypass valve. The valve may be gummed up with dirt or fuel varnish deposits, or the valve may be bad. Get a can of aerosol throttle cleaner, disconnect the air duct that attaches to the front of the throttle body, and spray the throat of the throttle body with the cleaner. Be sure the cleaer gets into the little holes in the side of the throat. If that does not help, y ou probably need to replace the IAC valve.
