Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that could be causing the engine to die when coming to a stop. It could be an idle air control or throttle position sensor issue, the EGR valve may be hanging open, you may be feeling the torque converter clutch staying applied.

If the converter clutch stays applied when coming to a stop it will drag the engine down and kill it with much the same feel as stopping without pressing the clutch on a manual transmission. Is that a good description of what you're feeling?
