HELP!! EF Bogging Down When at Idle.

Hey Guys, i am having a wierd problem.

I have a JDM D15 Automatic Winter Beater. The problem that i am having is that when i have driven around for about an hour and the car has warmed up and i stop at a stop light or come to a complete stop. The car would be at normal idle then all of a sudden the motor like just comes to hault like dims down like the car is going to shut off and comes back up at normal idle. When i then step on the gas it like boggs and like chatters and accellerates to normal speed sort of like when you are driving standard and the car is chattering when you have like a stage 2 or 3 clutch. I have changed spark plugs, wires, Altenator, Rad, oil & filter changed. I'm not too sure what it is. The car drives so smooth and amazing and now this started. I'm thinking it maybe the distributor. I don't have any check engine lights or anything on. Is there any way i can check to see if any codes are being thrown. I would really appreciate the help.
