there is an electric idle air control motor on the throttle body of this car. if the wiring seems sound, replace the motor. you wont be sorry (except the part is over $200.00 i think) You could also have a failing fuel pump (or clogged filter to the fuel pump). If it's the filter, it eludes detection by a fuel pump test and needs a visual inspection. If the problem gets worse the longer you drive the car, the fuel pump may be getting overheated from the strain, but quickly recovers after a minute when you stall out at a light. The whole problem begins as a clogged filter, but eventually causes enough overheating to damage the fuel pump. The final diagnosis becomes a fuel filter for $200 up plus labor.

Another suggestion: I replaced the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor. It is very simple to replace. Cost about 150 at local chain auto parts store. I tried this while also putting in some fuel injector cleaning fluid in the gas tank. Its been 2 years and my Camary V6 98' has stopped stalling. I got suggestion from the internet and I'm returning the favor. Thanks!
