At every redlight during the first 5km of driving,my engine shuts down.

I can see the RPM needle hitting zero.

The only way to prevent this is to quickly shift in to neutral and push the throttle a bit but im hoping for a more permanent solution.

What do you guys suggest?

replacing the airfilter, replacing the sparkplugs?

my car is a 1999 european xg v6 with 13000kms

hi -
seems you have a similar problem to what i had - my idle was all over the place and sometimes would just die for no apparent reason. This was until a friend fixed the problem by cleaning both the inside of the throttle body and the throttle compensator. You have to remove the throttle body to clean both. The compensator allows more fuel flow for extra engine load - like engaging the tranny in a drive gear, or turning on the A/C. Its a spring loaded plunger, and when it carbons up bad like mine did, it gets either stuck, or doesnt operate at all - like what is happening for you. A spray pack of CRC's Brake and Carby cleaner (roughly $20 australian) and a half hours work fixed my problem. Hopefully it will be the same for you.
