1999 chrysler sebring convertable will, on occasion, not idle when cold. The car has also stalled when coming to a stop. The throttle can be used to overcome the failure to idle. What would be the most likely cause?

Check for vacuum leaks at the engine. Also, check fuel pump pressure. The most common cause of this type of problem is a bad idle air control valve (IAC). It is located on the throttle body.
