Default Car turns off

my car turns off when i stop it doesnt it do it all the times but u know it gets annoying it did it three time today so far.. i just got a new power steering pump installed could it be something to do with dat? or is it the cold weather?

p.*. my car would never turn off it would be perfect until the steering thing was installed also when i press the brake to shift into drive the shifter makes a clicking sound

Is it stalling or completely shutting off?

You're going to have to express your problems a bit more clearly.

Your MOTOR is stalling, but the car is NOT turning off?

Yes, you're defiently going to have to express your problems a lot clearer. Use more than one sentence to describe them. It sounds like when you come to a stop, then step on the gas, you have some severe hesitation where the RPM will come down real low, and then suddenly jump back up. Am I correct?
