Car dies when i stop

Title kind of explains it. The car runs fine until I stop at a sign or light and then just dies. It will restart after with no problems. I'm kinda new to the 5.0 and I just bought the car. I know it has a b303 cam. Any ideas what to do? Also the transmission has a hard time getting into third and grinds getting into fourth unless I let the rpms die down alittle. Any help is greatly appreciated.

It idles at about 1000. Like I said I just bought the car so I'm looking at all possible options. I'll check the fuel filter out Tomorrow morning.
