Engine Mechanical problem
1987 Chrysler New Yorker 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 90000 miles

Whenever I am in drive and stop at a red light 9 times out of 10 the car stalls out. However if I kick it into Neutral while I'm slowing down it does fine. I have no idea where to even start looking for this problem and any help would be appreciated.

Has the check engine light come on? Also, when was the last tune up? Also, have you had the fuel pressure tested?

I haven't had the fuel pressure tested and the check engine light is not on. I last did a tune up a little less that 10,000 miles ago.I did a fuel system cleaning and the problem got better but the idle still drops pretty bad when im coming to a stop and then gets better once im actually stopped

I really feel it has to do with the TPS or IAC, but without a check engine light to confirm, it is a guess at this time.
