Anytime I slow down my car stalls. It starts right

or the car starts to shake and it shuts down.

It sounds like a pump or fuel injector issue. When the car is running faster the engine is able to pump fuel with enough pressure but as you decelerate the pressure drops and fuel is not flowing at a sufficient rate. Best to have it checked out. But if you want to try a few things, perhaps using a fuel additive that cleans injectors might help. You also might try replacing the fuel filter.

Also would have the Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid checked out.
