What does it mean when your car starts but dies when the rpms get lower than 1 or when you make complete stops?

The idle speed solonoid needs cleaning or replacing or carb needs overhauled. The EGR valve could also be stuck in an open position. The EGR valve should be closed when idling, otherwise the engine will die. When driving at town/city speeds or higher, the EGR will be open.
