Car drives fine but when coming to a stop the engine hesitates and stalls. I have been trying to look for answers but cannot get a straight one. I have found if I put the car in neutral when stopping it does not stall, or if I feel it being to stall I can sometimes put it in neutral and catch it before it stalls. Please Help!!!

Replaced the EGR valve ... everything ok, check engine disappear... for me i have already check the transmission fluid ! if your engine is stalling and have a low idle between 0 to 1000 rpm then look at the EGr valve theres a new model (canadian) before having other problems like a failing catalytic converter if not repaired !

Same issue. The car drives fine. When i come to a stop the idle will hesitate and occasionally stall completely. The problem is intermittent and unpredictable. I would not describe the idle as rough, though. When the engine does stall, it starts back up again no problem.
my car will crank up very easily but will not stay running when coming to a complete stop. the unit will sputter and cutoff very easily
