A million different reasons. But, one thing you can check that won't cost money is to check the rubber tube going from the airflow sensor to the throttle body. If it is cracked, air will be leaking, causing it to bypass the airflow meter, and making the engine die. If not, then it could be any number of things and you will have to take it to a shop and get it taken care of.
