I can start my car but after a little bit without doing anything the rpms slow down and then finally my car shuts off but all the lights are still on. I lose my power steering and my gas pedal doesnt work anymore. I have to shut it off and turn it back on for it to drive again. What is the problem?

Try cleaning out the idle air control valve with a carb cleaner and see what happens also go to this walk thru link: http://www.2carpros.com/articles/engine-stalls
