Now im just taking a guess, but when i hear about problems stalling when coming to a stop i instantly think of IAC needs to be cleaned, throttle body needs to be cleaned, and Thottle position sensor needs to be tested. Has your mechanic (we actually perfer being called Technicians now) looked at these parts the control idle?
It stalls sometimes coming to a stop sometimes just cruising down the road. It will sometimes drop rpms really quickly while my foot is still on the pedal and then immediately spike back up. Kind of like a bad shift or misfire.
I cleaned up the TB its sparkling. Intake looked pretty good when it was off. It did have an IAC code for about a day after the TB cleaning but it shut off and hasn't come back on.
My... ahem... technician hasnt specifically looked at them but he did mention that most sensors will throw a code if something is wrong. I've read people telling me to check cam/ crank sensors but if they arent throwing codes how can I be sure nothing is wrong with them?
