stalling sometimes

my 4cyl wrangler just started stalling.
When I come to a stop it stalls sometimes. Its done it 3 times in the last week now. I noticed that i don't hear the fuel pump whine everytime I turn on the ignition. It hasn't stalled while driving down the road. No check engine light either.
What am I looking at here?

your TPS going bad or your IAC sensor is caked with carbon, not a biggy a few bucks at your local autoparts shop for the TPS and a few minutes to remove clean and reinstall your IAC. id also recomend sea foaming the motor too

sea foam is what people use to clean the inside of an engine and is made for boat engines but does a good job at cleaning any motor.
