Engine cuts off

Once my engine warms up the engine dies once I push in the clutch and the rpm get to normal idle. I have changed the fuel filter, tps, and going to change the plugs tomorrow (5-30-14). Is there anything else I should look into doing to keep this from happening again?

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Check your air filter and clean the Mass Air Flow sensor while you're at it.
If the idle problem persists after the car is completely tuned up, you will likely have to start looking at the Idle Air Control valve as the possible cause.

Ok thanks I just went from a jtl cold air to a bbk. Just because no real reason why. But I did hear something about the idle air control. I'll look into that. Thanks again

I ended up just buying a new gasket for the idle air control valve and clean it out. So far so good but I'll keep you updated once I drive it more. Thanks again
