Question Engine heats up, then wants to stall out

The engine idles great until it heats up, then it stalls out when I stop. I am now driving two footed, gas and brake, to keep it running at intersections. I have had oxygen senors replaced and more.
I have had this problem for some time and I have spent a bunch of $$ at repair shops that don't know what they are doing, besides making money off of me.

Any ideas what causes this?
Thanks,
Lakeside

Unless your scheduled to have a foot amputated, what's the problem?

Now why didn't I think of that? Thanks for your help.

I would appreciate any serious replies.

Start with cleaning the IAC and MAF. Both of those will cause idle issues once it warms up and is in closed loop. See the how-to section here.

FireRanger,

I can't find where I replied to you, but thanks so much for the information.
Sounds like the sensors might be a little tricky to work on, but as soon as the weather here in MI warms up a little bit I will take a look.
I'm so happy I found you all and appreciate all the information available.
