It depends on what you mean be stall. If you can hear the engine rev up like the trans isn't even in could be a few things. 1) You're low on trans fluid. And the trans is literally falling out of gear around turns or when you go up hill. 2) If you stomp the gas and it revs up then takes off...and you have an automatic trans your drive belt is going out. If you can take off fine in 1st gear (automatic only) then it is your drive belt. If it just started doing this get something called Lucas Transmission Additive. It will recondition the belt enough to make it driveable. If it's been going on a while, chances are good your trans is shot.

If you're driving a manual, it's probably stalling because if you don't press the clutch right after you release the gas pedal while changing gears, and then press on the gas again, the car may stall. If you're driving an auto, the explanation is a little more difficult to describe.
