Sounds like a fuel filter problem so I would first check all filters in the fuel system.

This issue could be caused by a few different factors, such as a failing fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, or a problem with the idle air control valve. It's recommended to have a mechanic perform a diagnostic to pinpoint the exact cause of the stalling and loss of power after driving a longer distance.
