Sounds like the Idle Air Control. Go to the Autozone.com site, register and look up the repair information on that car so you know what the part looks like. Then take the valve off, clean it and see if it takes care of the stalling. If not, I'd replace it. Try cleaning it first, though, they aren't cheap.

is it throwing a code or the check engine light is on.
that should be OBD1 so not a free code check. i think anyway.

the IAC control makes a noise when it is failing.
becaeful when you take it off not to ruin the gasket.
