Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please

I have a 88 4.0, it runs as good as any motor with 130000 on it but lately after I drive for more than about 20 minutes(like after its good and hot) and come to a stop it sputters and will barely stay running. Sometimes at a stop sign it even stalls. At higher rpms it is ok though...any ideas would be great. Thanks in advance

Really got ripped off on an 88yj.....BUT!, I CAN AND WILL REBUILD HER

I have idol problems latly on my 88 wrangler, but it's a 2.5 I found out that my computer wasn't doiing what it was supposed to do, maybe we have the same computer,I don't know, I happened to be running very rich and getting very bad gas milage, if those are your symptoms then it could be the computer not controlling the fuel that well
