Clean the airflow sensor. There is a special spray to do this. DO NOT use carburetor cleaner. It will damage the sensor.

Clean the EGR valve and make sure it has current. replace with the exact part number and for your particular car if you have to replace it. But first check the idle position sensor located near the fuel injector system at the top. It has a plug that you remove.

It sounds like your idle air control valve could be going out on you. The extra stress from being in gear can cause the car to stall out if the IAC valve isn't opperating properly. The IAC is attached to the throttle body and is normally held on by two screws. IAC valves are relatively cheap from AutoZone and easy to replace. That would be my best guess based on your description. Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!
