Default 1994 acura legend

I have a 1994 acura legend and when I come to a stop it dies on me. It cranks right back up. Any idea what would cause that?

Your idle air control valve (EACV or IACV) is probably the culprit. It is located to the right and directly behind the throttle body and has an electrical connection. Check the connector for corrosion which I typically see on these. If its corroded you need to clean the terminals with a thin emory board or file and clean the connector the best you can with a paper clip. Apply dielectric grease to prevent further corrosion. These valves also have a tendency to clog up on the screens which can cause the same issue.

This happened to me once, and it ended up being my battery being really low like LITERALLY DEAD. You can also check that.
