Probably idle control sosonoid located on the throtle body. Take it off and clean it and where it mounts. Also cleqan the inside of the throtle body where the throtle plate is as a carrbon ring forms there.

Assuming that you aren't over-heating, check the fuel pump. My 1999 Taurus used to stall/ refuse to start when it was hot due to a faulty pump.

A very low idle can cause a 97 Ford Taurus to stall. Another reason for stalling may be transmission bands sticking, which does not allow the transmission to come out of gear on idle.

Stopped up exhaust.Cat converter is bad and blown back into muffler causing stoppage.

My girlfriends 97 was doing the same thing....it turned out to be the ignition switch.It started to stall intermittently (once every couple days)then yesterday it would not run at all unless you held the key in start position. Take a test drive and giggle the key to see if it shuts of.

There could be a few reasons why a 2000 Jeep Cherokee would stall in stopped traffic. There could be a fuel line clogged or there could be a bad spark plug.
