Im having this same problem with my 94 cavalier...from what i read online it might be the TCC solenoid which is a computer controlled "lockup" torque converter. Basically from what i understand is when the solenoid becomes faulty, when the car slows down or comes to a stop the solenoid thinks the car is shutting down ie you stall out. Kind of like in a manual trans if your idling and let go of the clutch the car jumps and stalls.

There is a quick fix that you end up losing about 3-4 mpg but all you have to do is unplug a 4 pin blue connector from the side of the transmission and you wont have this problem. Or you could fix it and it'll cost you somewhere around 60-80 bucks and about 30 minutes of your time.

Now im not 100% but im about to go out in my garage and try disconnecting it and going for a drive. When this is happening to your car does you check engine light come on and that's when it stalls out when coming to a stop? Mines been doing that

How do you check the transmission fluid on a 1993 Chevy Cavalier?

For a Cavalier, you have to turn her on for a few minutes to warm up the fluid. Then use the dip-stick on the transmission fluid input. May I add that it takes 10 miles of driving to get the transmission up to operating temperture. Check the fluid level accordint to instructions in the owners manual. Sometimes this is hot in park, cold in park, depends on the vehicle. Make sure the vehicle is sitting on a level surface. Do not overfill as this can damage seals.
