Question I Dont Get THis Problem?

I HAVE A 96 3.8 V6 MUSTANG AND MY QUESTION WAS EVERY TIME THAT IM COMING TO A COMPLETE STOP I NOTICE THAT THE RPMS DROP BELOW FIVE HUNDRED, AND THE THE CAR SHAKES AS IF THE ENGINE TRYIES TO DIE I GUESS. IT RUNS PERFECTLY, IDLES FINE AND BRAKES NORMALLY. I CHECKED EVERYTHING OUT AND I COULDNT FIND ANYTHING WRONG WITH IT. SO IF ANYBODY HAS HAD THIS PROBLEM OR MAY KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT IT THAT CAN PLEASE HELP ME OUT, PLEASE DONT HESITATE TO WRITE BACK

I'd check the MAF first and clean this.

Re: I Dont Get THis Problem?

clean the maf really good wtih electronic cleaner NO residue on contact cleaner.

then you can check the idle bypass valve (iac) on the upper intake, its near the throttle body and cylinder shaped.
