My 94 Civic LX stalls everytime a stop. But starts right back up when I try.

Any ideas about what it could be?

it also just started making a squeaking sound. It sounds like its coming out of the engine but it doesn't sound like a belt. It started at the same time as the stalling problem. Any ideas?
Do you

Either the idling speed is too low or you could have a seized/heavy idler bearing along the beltings.

No the check engine light is not on. It did start to idle below normal but would still stay on, it seems to only stall when I'm driving and then what to stop at a light there for I am not pushing the gas. I was thinking fuel filter maybe? But would that make it idle funny also?

Lacking electrical experience can get things worst best just bring it in and have it further checked out by an auto electrical specialist
