I have a 1995 pontiac bonneville sse with 292000 miles on it it has a 3800 series 2 engine with 80000 miles on it

the problem is that when I started it it will start but when it idles it revs a little then revs drop and it dies
sometimes when you drive it it will do the same thing and you have to give it the gas to keep it running sometimes when you come to a stop it will die but will start back up with same problem

thanks

I have a 89 Pontiac 6000 LE with a 2.8L V-6 and 126000 km on it. When the car warms up a little bit and I stop at a stop sign or traffic light, the rpm drops to 500, it almost stalls and has stalled once. I had the intake manifold and fuel injectors cleaned but that didn't work out. I did the "Idle relearn" procedure, but that didn't work either. I'm thinking that it could be the ECM or the IAC. I also noticed that when I turn on the A/C, the engine doesn't rev higher, which it should, it justs revs even lower. I also just changed the battery recently because it died out completely (last week)

Could it possibly be the torque lock converter

I had that same problem, it's your air idle control sensor. Be ready to dish out 'bout $150 bucks.
