My 96 Van was doing the exact same thing. I had the van in to do some work prior to setting it up to tow a trailer when it was discovered the engine mounts and transmission mounts were nearly tore apart. The engine was just resting on them. I never gave it any thought until a few days after they were replaced that it stopped stalling when I put it in gear. Hope it helps.

Partially clogged fuel filter or weak fuel pump. Replace the fuel filter.

It sounds like your alternator is no longer recharging your battery. You probably need a new alternator.

If a car starts then just stalls then starts up again with no problem?

There is most likely something in the gas tank. When the car starts the fuel pump starts sucking in fuel and when the trash gets to it the gas will not be able to flow through the clogged pump so the car stalls. When it stalls the fuel pump stops suction and the trash comes out allowing it to start again.
