serging and stalling

Every once and a while, when I come to a stop the car starts to serge and eventually stalls.

It did this 2 weeks ago then it was fine. Now it started again today but not all the time.

What's up?

leaking head gasket

I am being told that a small amount of oil is coming from my head gasket.

The shop told me to just keep an eye on it and it shouldn't be a problem. What are your thoughts?
