After our car died everything was checked then a new computer was put in. But since then it idles too high, it keeps stalling out. The longer you drive it the more it stalls. We keep bringing it back and they keep saying there is nothing else they can do it's much better now. Then we drive it and it's worse the more it's driven. Please help!

First eliminate all vacuum or air leaks in the system. You may have a bad IAC ( idle air control) but try cleaning the throttle body first. Remove the intake snorkel, have someone hold the throttle wide open for you and scrub the back side of the throttle plate and surrounding bore with an old tooth brush and some carb cleaner. Be sure to spray some into the small holes next to the throttle plate. That should help stabilize the idle. If it still has a problem, replace the IAC.
