Check the air idle control (AIC) valve...It can be cleaned with a throttle body cleaner. Maybe the fuel filter. The shaking could be a motor mount.

AnswerAlso bad fuel. Buy gas at a good station not the cheapest station. Put some fuel conditioner in the tank. AnswerTorque converter (part of the transmission).. its a common problem. Get it checked out.. AnswerIve worked with a mechanic that did this once. The car he drove would stall at complete stops sometimes. scan the computer for trouble codes. Check the MAF(Mass Air Flow) sensor. It is located on the throttle body, usually right after the air filter. Most of the time it is flat shaped and just screws into the throttle body. Unplug the electrical connector from it. Unscrew the sensor, clean the inside of the sensor with rubbing alcohol, get any dirt you see out. be careful no to break the little metal pieces inside. screw it back in place and reconnect the electric connector and give it a test drive. If that doesnt work, replace the sensor.

It could even be a "throttle position sensor" I've had a couple of them go on me in the past , they would Scream! the RPM gauge up to 3000 to 4000 and only feel like driving 30 mph is about the fastest I could go, but when I came to a Stop the engine would Die out, had start it up again it would Scream! like a transmission was working too hard! , it would shake and everything later I hooked up my "CODE SCANNER" showed the "Throttle position sensor" was bad I replaced it for $100 at advance auto part store, that was a "throttle position sensor" for a Jeep Cherokee 1998 , they are all priced different for different car makes and models to price might be different for your car, also if you plan on doing alot of "home mechanical" repairs you should Invest in to an "obd2 code-scanners" they are well worth their money you'll be glad you go one, there are cheap ones "flash scanners" and there are "on screen code scanners" that what i have they cost anywhere from $100-$300

complete stop that's it. Wellll, not quite. One must come to a complete stop, but 'complete' is more precisely defined as holding that stop for 2-3 seconds. That was per the officer that gave me a ticket for a rolling stop, also known as a 'California Stop' or simply 'Stoptional'.

No..you have to come to a complete stop first.Then you may processed with caution only. But I will wait for the green myself.

Yes. It's a moving violation, and you can get points for it.

You come to a complete stop at the limit line or before entering the crosswalk/intersection of that specific red stop sign.

Several things can cause your car to stall and shake when you stop. Replacing the spark plugs and spark plug wires may cure the problem.

Cylinder miss, broken motor mount, or vacuum leak.

Come to a full and complete stop, check for traffic coming from the left and proceed only when safe to do so.

Apply the brakes until you have come to a complete stop then shift the selector into park and set the parking brake.

Does it shake and stall when decellerating or at anytime? because mine seems to do that but its only when decellerating at a stop light or stop sign or whever and it dont always do it.. only after long drives. (1992 Pontiac Sunbird). It might be a bad EGR Valve.

Your Jeep Wrangler is not getting the proper amount of gas if it stalling when you come to a complete stop. This could be your fuel pump, fuel lines, or the intakes.

No, the term 'complete stop' is a noun phrase, made up of the noun 'stop' described by the adjective 'complete'.

How does a car's front end shimmy at a complete stop? Shimmies only happen with the car moving. Need more specific information in the question.
