Car dies at idle.........

I chased this problem a few years ago. Turned out it was simply gunk
built up in the throttle body that would not allow the butterfly to
close completely. When it went to idle, or when I stepped on the gas,
an extra gulp of gas would stall the engine. If this is your problem
you can easily pull the rubber throttle intake tube and swab out the
throttle body, which I now do on a regular basis.
