Hello Wyonia,Sorry to hear about your troubles.Two things come to my mind.First, I have had issues like this with my old carburated cars when the choke pull off was defective and when you came to a stop, the choke butterflies would close too much and basically choke off the air to the engine stalling it out. I do not know if fuel injection cars have a similar thing?Second (unlikely, but you never know), you say that it only does this when you come to a stop? Is it worse when you only go up to 20 mph and then stop or when you get up to 40-6- mph and stop. I have had some friends that had their torque convertor not unlock when coming to a stop making the car seem like a manual trans coming to a stop without pushing the clutch in. Hello David,thanks for answering ,I finally found your reply.My car started sputtering at high speed,I took it to my local mechanic and he said it needed a tune up,so I bought platium plugs ,wires ,distribator cap, rotor button.He put all that on it,then it started dying when it was hot at idle,it wasnt doing that until the mechanic so called fixed it.I usually drive it about 60 mph for 30 thirty miles then when I get to a red light it will shake,miss,surge and die. it doesnt do it every time sometimes its worse than others.If it doesnt die it will take off to fast and I have to hold the brake to keep it from rear ending someone.Ive replaced the gas filter,oyxen sensor,idle air control valve which was really carbined up.The cadillac dealer couldnt get it to die,It supposedly check out good on all monitered test.It acts like a dirty carberator or a clogged gas filter.I bought all my parts at napa as I know the others arent to good.Ive had caddys for twenty years I usually work on them my self as the old ones was easy to deal with.This one isnt to complicated with eletronics but I cant hit the right part.It runs perfect when its acting right.I dies if Im going slow or fast when I stop.It runs perfect at seventy or beyond.It just started doing this one morning when I got in it.I can shut it off and restart it after its pulled its little episode and it pulls out of it for awhile.Would a torque converter jerk bad like somebody driving a stick that didnt have the hang of it? It doesnt vibrate, its more of a bad miss,choked for air or gas kind of thing. Thanks wyonia
