Post Shuts down when at a stop

I have a 2001 Ranger. I recently had the fuel pump replaced but,
the issue I am having is my truck turns off when at a stop.

What could be the problem?

Where in Gilbert are you? I'm in Mesa. And truck info and what is happening when it shuts down would help out.

I think the OP is still stalled out a a red light.

Idling is quite the balancing act for engines. things that won't be obvious during higher revs will nail it when it idles. Stalling during idle is most commonly a symptom of a vacuum leak. But really it could be incorrectly gapped plugs, wrong plugs, bad plugs, dipping fuel pressure due to a restriction in the fuel delivery or even return line.
It would help to know if it does this every time it stops, how immediately, or does it stall during stopping like some else mentioned about the torque converter.

Idle could be too low, are your rpms dropping pretty low?

I've experienced this due to a carboned-up/sticky egr valve - around 200,000km on a Saturn SW2 4 cyl. When stalled, would get codes for the dpfe sensor.
