'96 Corsica-stalling at low idle

I have a problem with my Corsica stalling at low idle. It always starts right back and the problem is not constant. Please help me figure what is wrong. I'm not rich and I can't afford some of the repair shops around here.

Need more information. Could be a number of things.....

Is the check engine light on? What's the history of the car?

Check my posts and links listed below for some ideas.

if there is no check engine light on, have your IAC "idle air control motor" checked out, it may only need to be cleaned.

I agree, and if the throttle body hasn't been cleaned in the past 40k miles, clean it too. It only costs as much as a can of throttle body cleaner.
