This question implies a lot of knowledge and suggests that the questioner already knows the answer. If the stalling occurs when you are slowing down to say come to a stop, then being in overdrive would stall the engine just like forgetting to push the clutch pedal on a std xmsn car. You are locked into overdrive. Overdrive is achieved by solenoid action in the tranny. If the solenoid is not automatically disengaging like it should when one slows down, then stalling will occur. If shifting manually to lower gears as one slows helps then the solenoid is probably sticking. Try disconnecting the solenoid wire at the connector at the front of the tranny, accessible from front of the vehicle with the hood up. Just reach down and separate the connector wires and then drive the car to see if this stops the problem. You can run this way w/o harm or open the tranny and replace the solenoid. You will just lose a couple mpg w/o overdrive. I think it can be replaced w the tranny still in the car, not sure.
