1996 Dodge Neon dies when letting off the gas

Asked by Jan 14, 2014 at 02:02 PM about the 1996 Dodge Neon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1996 Dodge Neon won't stay running whenever I take my foot off of the gas. It'll drive
fine, but if I'm at a stop light, or in the middle of the turn, and I'm braking, my car dies.
Help?
