fuel injectors need to be cleaned and/or fuel filter needs to be can also be for numerous a bad sensor or an early indication of a failing ecu..but in most cases it's one of the 2 fore mentioned faults.if you do clean the injectors and replace the fuel filter and the car continues to 'stall' then IMMEDIATELY stop using it and see a mechanic because if it's a failing ecu; continuance of operating the car will blow the ecu beyond repair, ecus are expensive to replace and without it the car will be written-off. -freebsdkid
