    If the car is an automatic, It has what is called a T.C.C. solenoid on transmission.This is a very common problem with these cars. T.C.C stands for transmission converter clutch. What happens is the clutch on the torque converter doesn't disengage when you stop and the car dies because the trans is locked to the engine via the clutch on the torque converter. Its like stopping a stick shift without pushing the clutch in. The way to check this is to unplug the 4 pin plug on the trans and see if it stops doing it. Do not leave unplugged for too long or you can create excess heat in the trans and do damage. Let me know if this works,thats the first thing I would try. Hope this helps,

    there are a number of things if you have a vacuum gage check your vacuum
    or check your vacuum lines for a leak or plug off you vacuum and see if doesn't die
    did you reset your idle this winter without your air on ?
    turn off the air and see if it dies !!!
    if not reset your idle.
    crank it up at night and raise your hood in the dark and see if your plug wires are arking.!!!
    check your timing !!
    if all else fails don't shoot it !!!!
    call all your car buds and have a beer and sausage party ice the beer put the sausages on and say "when the car is fixed we'll eat and have some beer" i usually try this first.
