ENGINE STALLING

2000 Daewoo Matiz • Manual •

I have a 2000 daewoo matiz 800cc I bought today! It has 88k on the clock.
At first start up it drove fine and I drove it about 15 miles almost on a straight without problems. I noticed that when I took my foot off the accelerator, it sounded as though my foot was still on it, not over revving, just didn't 'come down' as you would expect. Anyway, after 10 mins with the engine off, I started it again with no problems, drove about 1 mile, turned it off to collect son and was gone about 5 mins. When starting again, it was fine, but when I slowed down at a junction and was almost at a stop, it stalled. This happened everytime I slowed down to a stop, or almost to a stop. The car is parked up now, but am sure it will be an ongoing problem
Could anyone shed some light?
