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.
Do you
have the same problem?

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.

Good morning

Just to add another possibility, it could be the transmission not downshifting causing the stalling as well. If it is still in a higher gear and does not downshift quick enough it would be like coming to a stop with the stick shift and not pushing in the clutch.

Has the trans been serviced?
