Chevy Lumina Stalls At A Stop

Q. Hello, I have a 1991 Chevy Lumina car with a 3.1 liter V-6, automatic transmission, 206,000+ miles. Fuel injected, P/S, A/C, and cruise control. The problem I'm having is when I drive the car for a while the overdrive will stay stuck and make my car stall when stopping. What can cause this?

Chevy Lumina Stalls At A Stop

I have to put it in neutral to stop and then wait for a while to go again. I get lucky sometimes and can rev it up while in neutral and then it will be okay. Otherwise its stuck there for a while. I have unhooked the sensor on the transmission and have been driving like that so I won't get the problem anymore.

A. Most times this is fixed by replacing the torque convertor clutch solenoid inside the transmission. They tend to stick on when they get some miles on them.
