Question little problem stalling

my problem is that i start my jeep in the morning let it warm up and drive away...but when i come to a stop it stalls! i can start it back up again but soon as i come to a stop again it stalls again......then i let it sit for a few days and it ran again like nothing happened.....but then this morning it ran fine into work but on the way home it started doing it again. and got worse as the jeep got warmer. any suggestions what this might be.....?? thanks.

88 yj sahara IL 6 4.3 auto.

your CARTER carb needs to be tossed or rebuilt

dont try tuning it, it's nearly impossible

89 4.2 w/carb. I had this problem when the weather was damp. I raised the idle at the solenoid and that solved the problem for about 2 years. I eventually replaced the carb due to other issues.

a long shot here, but in persuit to say something different...could it be a going or failed brake booster? when mine went (true it was a mpi asperation) it did that same thing basically. the more i braked the squirrlier it got. do you have good pressure build up when you pump the brakes with the engine off?
