I just had the head gasket and other work done. Now it sounds like a hive of wasps in the engine whe I slow down or stop. It has also started stalling when I reverse or stop at a light.
Do you
have the same problem?

If these problems were not there before repair, then something is wrong with repair. Your "wasp" sound could be they tightend timing belt to tight. I would ck. Other belts 1st, make sure they have proper adjustment. But an overtightened t-belt useually makes that noise. Your other issues sound like something was missed or incorrectly installed or even "Not Connected" at all. You should have it re-checked by the repair person. Ask them to go over the things with you that were removed & reinstalled. Good Luck !
P.S. - Also ck. Idler pulleys belts run on.

Hey - From our conversation it is still doing the same? What were you saying about full tank of gas vs 1/2 tank? What about this being more common in reverse? Is there any hissing, or any visible hoses (small ones) not connected? Did the problem go away temproairly when Bro Jeff cleaned the emissions ports? Have you ran any fuel injector cleaner? Take it for an ealry morning romp - up i-25 or out east on 70 - duration is more important than speed - go about 40 miles at a constant speed and take your cell phone - in case you have to walk home. Do it ealry saturday so if you have to call someone it is Bro Jeff.
There are a number of issues and possible solutions - some cheaper than others.
