96 plymouth breeze 2.0

My vehicle has begun to stall upon stopping. As I come to a stop the engine will idle too low, I'll hear a bit if knocking and finally stall. If I place car in park, shut down completely, it restarts just fine. Any suggestions? Perhaps the tps? Thankyou in advance for any advice! Mike

Idle air control (IAC) maybe, but before throwing parts at it I would try giving the intake throat around the butterfly a good cleaning. Take an old toothbrush and some spray carb cleaner. Prop the throtttle all the way open - engine off! - and scrub away at both sides of the butterfly plate and the surrounding intake throat. Unblock throttle and reconnect ducting and give it a try. I would also have it checked for codes even though the CEL may not have come on. All the other tune-up items good? Plugs, wires, cap, rotor, filters, etc?
