DODGE TRUCK ENGINE PROBLEM

1997 Dodge Truck

1997 Dodge Truck V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic

I have a 1997 Dodge 1500 that just stopped running last night when I came to a stop sign. The truck runs peach when it is in park and neutral. When you put it in drive it stalls out or you can give it gas to keep it running. When the RPM's hit low like when you are getting to a stop sign the engine will die. I thought it was the torque converter but I am not sure. Anyone have any ideas? My next stop was to start with the sensors.

***Update***
Just changed the Idle Air Control Valve and it did not resolve the issue.
