Default car inexplicably dying?

After pulling out of my driveway and driving down my street, i came to a stop sign and before i could put the clutch in, the car died. It did this three more times, consecutively, throughout the day. Now it doesnt die, but it does get really low in the RPMs - like under 500. I remember seeing somebody with the same or a similar problem awhile back. I had just changed my battery to a new one, for whatever that's worth. Can anybody shed some light on this?

Maybe ECU is relearning your driving habits? Was the A/C on or off - I'm assuming that is was on as you are located in the very cold state of Texas.

Yeah i did some research and i think that might be it. I just hope it doesnt take long; the RPMs are still dipping when i put the clutch in or slow down.
And yes, the a/c was on, although it got down to a balmy 92 degrees yesterday

Drive the car like you stole it - with the A/C on and after a couple of days you should no longer have a problem. Seems it was really a cold day in H*** or was that Texas when you had the problem (jk)...

You need to let it relearn to idle first. Disconnect the battery cables or pull the fuse for the ECU and then hold the break pedel for about 5 seconds to kill any charge thats in the system. Reconnect it turn off a/c, turn the key to on but not start, when the fuel pump stops charging turn the key off and then fire up the car may take a few extra seconds to fire the first time. Let it run for about 10 mins at idle so it can relearn. You wont have the stall issue any more and it will relearn correctly to maintain preformance and millage.
