car dies when you come to a stop sometimes. car will spuder and then will all of a sudden just go. if it dies it will resart but dies when you put it in gear. if you let it sit for a while it will start up and run fine. got good fuel pressure and i replaced the idle control valve. can't figure this out.

I've heard of Torque Converter Clutches not fully disengaging, so when you bring your car to a stop it will die...like a manual tranny when you don't push the clutch pedal in. Just may be a lead for you for somewhere to start looking.

Before throwing a lot of money at her, dump a bottle or two of DRY GAS, Water Out (Isopropyl Alcohol) in the fuel tank. Condensation in the tank can really cause some weird problems.
