CAR STALLING & IGNITIONS OFF WHILE ON TRAFFIC JAM

1999 Toyota Corolla • 10,000 miles

I used a Toyota corolla car, 1999 model automatic transmission, the engine worked fine but of recent has started developing an unusual problem, if I start the engine the engine picks up once I put the gear on drive "D" the engine begins to stall and goes off, or if I am in traffic jam, it stalls and it goes off, when I put on my A.C it engine stalls and goes off, I also noticed that this has enhanced high fuel consumption by the engine, I have taken it to several mechanics but the cause is still there, please I need help on this, what can be the reason for this?

The engine idle control system seems to be erratic and I would suggest cleaning the throttle body and IAC for a start.

You mean if I get a mechanic to clean the throttle body it would work? What does IAC mean?

Idle Air Control valve. Yes, cleaning them should work.
