Jeep dies while driving

My 1996 Grand Cherokee is has started dying while I've been driving. It only happens in the first five minutes after I start driving. So far, it has only died when I have been traveling at low speeds in parking lots. It has tried to die on me a couple times when I've been going over 20 but it never fully dies. When it dies all the electrical components still work, I just have to turn the key back and start it up. It has no problem starting back up. Any idea what the problem could be?

#1 (the brain). Replacing the three capacitors worked on my 1994 Jeep. Then I had to clean the IAC valve. Could be other things but, these two items worked for me.
