When I come to a stop, my car feels like its going to die out, but it iss just a slight sensation. It never has died out. As long as I am actually on the move, the car is fine. Any ideas of what could be wrong? Thanks.
You may need to check into a basic tune up according to your mileage, you may also check into having your idle air control valve checked/cleaned.
There are tips that you can find such as http://www.ehow.com/how_5560811_clean-chevy-iac-valve.html.
You may need some basic maintenance to maintain optimum performance.

Hello Margaret- best guess is a couple things,1 that the throttle body is dirty so go to your local auto parts store & buy some throttle body or carburetor cleaner(in a spray can) & thoroughly clean the throttle body ( at the engine end of the air intake hose) or it could be a bad IAC valve (idle air control ) hope this helps- thanks Super Girls Auto.

I think you should check your records and see when the last tune-up was on your vehicle...
If it*s a fuel injected vehicle, you may just need a cleaner run through the system. The only way to be sure is to take it in and let them run a diagnostic, it*s certainly better than sitting on the side of the road or stuck at a stop light in rush hour..ugh! www.communitytireaz.com

If you haven*t changed your fuel or air filters for a while, it may be a good time to do so now. If this doesn*t help, I suggest you bring your vehicle to a qualified technician that can drive the car and experience the concern first hand and go from there.
