CAR SHUTS OFF WHEN I STOP but turns back on

1991 Honda Civic shuts off when I stop sometimes but turns back on…please leave any solutions

Please tell us more about your problem…

How does it turn back on? By itself, or do you start it?

Stalls out when you come to a stop? Is your routine maintenance (distributor cap, rotor, spark plugs, spark plug wires) up to date? Cleaning the throttle body and idle air control valve may also help.
