Sounds like dirty/faulty idle air control valve or dirty throttle plate. A bad iac will not always thro a code.

Ok. It also does not allow you to accelerate either before it stalls out. And my rpm is usually between the 0 and 1

But on the highway it runs normal? If so I would check into the iac and cleaning the throttle plate.
