CEL and engine stalls

Hi all,

Got the dreaded CEL & Boxtser stalls when idling. Rough idle and engine just stalls, but when when it is moving it can go until I am at area light/stop sign, car stalls. Any ideas?

MY99 with 40k. TIA

Please read out the error code stored in the computer and post it here so we can help. You'll need a OBDII code reader ($40+) or many auto parts stores will read it out for you for free.
