Check the EGR valve. An EGR valve that is open at idle will cause a car to stall. An EGR should be closed at idle and open when you are driving around.Answer
Also check the TCC (Torque Converter Clutch) solenoid. It's part of the tranmission. The TCC locks the car into gear at higher speeds, as if it were a manual transmission, to eliminate slippage and save gasoline. If it stays locked up when you come to a stop, the car bucks and stalls (just like if you forgot to step on the clutch in a stickshift car).
