Really a redneck way of temporarily dealing with it, but you use your left foot on the brake while applying light pressure to the gas pedal to keep your car from stalling.

Without knowing the make, model, and engine your car has, it is impossible to answer this question. The more details you can give about your car and what it was doing when it stalled, the better the answer you can get. Before posting a question I would advise you to have a the codes read on your vehicle so that you may post those as well.

Well I am assuming that you car has a manual transmission, and it is stalling because you are not pushing in the clutch when you come to a stop. The more likely reason is because your idle is set to low on your car. Your most likely culprit is the carburetor. However if you car is fuel injection I would take it into a mechanic and get their opinion.
