Question 89 Caravan cutting off

I recently bought an 89 Dodge Caravan which had been sitting for about eight months. I have changed all fluids and given it a tune up. The problem is is that when I come to a stop the engine drags heavy and will cut off if I dont release the brake just before I feel it starting to cut off. I am looking for some advice or possibilites as to what this might be and how to fix it. Thank you.

Probably a vacuum leak somewhere, what with it sitting for a while.
When replacing your altenator, make sure your battery is fully charged.
