Start by checking your idle air control motor, throttle position sensor and MAP sensor.

Speedometer immediately drops to zero when engine dies, that is normal.

Check for Vaccum leaks in the lines, expecially where components connect, and gaskets. And tighten them down.

Try that and see if it works out.
