frown 1991 Topaz stops running when I stop!

I have a 1991 Topaz, the car runs strong, but when I come to a complete stop it tends to die on me slowly until it stops running. when i turn the key it starts right up. also I noticed that when I come to a stop again, I keep my foot on the brake and a slighty pressure on the gas peddle and it keeps the car from dieing on me. any suggestions??? my idle speed comes down slowly untill the car dies.

Re: 1991 Topaz stops running when I stop!

I'd make sure engine compression is good. If it is replace the TPS/IAC sensor and give'r a tune up with new plugs that are gaped correctly. Should fix the problem. If it doesn't, then I would think it's fuel related and to have the pump checked for proper operation.
