Small Problem

After running the , when I stop at a red light , my car seems like it's about to stall but then corrects itself. Don't know what it can be. Haven't change the plugs and I have 57,000miles on it. What else u think it can be. It doesn't happen when I put in park tho. Only when the brakes are applied

Thanks in advance

I actually had the same thing happen to me yesterday. I was slowing down and when i let off the brake to apply the gas again it felt as if it was going to die but then when i hit the gas it was fine.

I had the same problem, I took my MAF out, cleaned it, cleaned my k&n, new plugs and it still does it, ran it to advance so they could check my OBD-2 and it said its the upflow O2 sensor on my DP..so its coming out and getting cleaned up...we'l see.
