Engine died at traffice light stop

98 Plymouth Breeze 2.0L 4 cyl 60K mi
The car has been acting up for about a year. What I mean is when brake is pressed, immediately before the car stops, engine kind of goes low rpm, and then picks up speed again back to normal idling. The engine died once last week. What must I suspect? Thank you.

I would start by cleaning the throttle body and idle speed control motor. See if that clears up the problem.

I am working now on the car. The engine has multiport injection. So does this car not have throttle body? Thanks.

Still has a throttle body, just not "Throttle Body Injection"
Throttle Body is where the air enters the engine
Usually where the black tube from the air filter ends and the engine begins
You should be able to remove the tube and get a good look at the Throttle Body
