1991 Tempo - stalls at stop signs

My Tempo dies after about 5 minutes of running it in town. It simply
needs restarted - but it dies at intesrsections.... Any idea ? Could
it be spark plugs ? Battery ?

Typically, if I come to a stop sign, and idle, it will just die.
poof. Turn the key, starts right back up. Just put a new starter in
it.

Any ideas ?

Thanks in advance

IAC valve or TPS, maybe ignition module.

try just cleaning the throttle bore, cheap, easy and does wonders some of
the times for these symptoms

Most likely problem is dirty IAC and throttle body.
Throttle body may be cleaned on vehicle. Badly carnoned IAC
will probably need to be removed and soaked in solvent to
clean. Really bad carbon may require replacement of IAC.
IAC = Idle Air Control

Good Luck
