Engine stalls

95 chev 350 crate engine about 8000 mi . Just started stalling when stopping or shortly after moving. Fires right back up. Runs fine at speed. I have no code reader. I'm thinking idle speed senser Any thoughts?

Idle speed sensor? ?? no such critter .
However if you have a check engine light you should see what the code is.
You might just need to set the minimum air rate is all. Just google it. There are a couple places that explain it well.

95 crate, if it's in a 95 g.m. you don't need a code reader, you can jump term a&b on the adel connector and it'll flash the codes on the dash in morse code..

Guess I should have gotten back sooner, I fixed it right away. Turned out to be the ignition switch. 95 Chevy pickup. Guess they're a problem. All four or five parts stores in our small town sell an average of 8 a year. Talk about a price difference. A high of $275 to $140 with my disscount. I got one off e-bay for $47 delivered next day and free freight.
