This problem is in most cars, that is when running the AC on a hot day. There is a solenoid, or a solenoid and a valve to adjust the idle when the AC compressor kicks in so the engine will not die.

An oxygen sensor, EGR valve or other tune-up related issue can cause a vehicle to stall when idling and in gear. Start with a computer diagnostic scan and see what it tells you to repair. You can often borrow, rent or buy a code scanner from local auto parts retailers. A scanner can pay for itself on the first repair.

How do you fix engine stall problem in 2001 sentra?

my 2001 Sentra would constantly stall when idling. My mechanic had a tough time diagnosing the problem because the "computer" kept giving the wrong codes. He ended up replacing the Mass Air Flow Sensor($250) and Knock sensor($170), and TPS sensor($100). Probably did not need all three replaced, but it runs great now. You could have them check those first.
