Welcome to Just Answer and thank you for asking your question. I look forward to helping you fix your vehicle.
I will try my best to help you and in order to do that, I need you to describe the issue in as much detail because I only know as much about your vehicle as you have told me in your post, so my answer will be based on what you have posted. Please include all the small details that may seem insignificant such as warning light, codes that you have scanned and how this started. I will also try my hardest to help you avoid a dealer or shop, but with the modern vehicles an electronics, there may come a point that we cannot avoid this, and if that is the case, I will tell this.
My goal is your satisfaction and I ask that you not accept unless you are satisfied, but if you are satisfied, please accept so I can receive credit for my work and time. Positive Feedback is greatly appreciated and bonuses are always welcomed.

Is the check engine light on? What is the mileage?
check engine light has been on evap codes, has had a new autotrans recently installed
has 169,000 miles on it.codes that are present p0449,p0452,p1639.I think what need is a diagnostic chart and a componet location chart related to evap system and or suggestions.
Ok, this sounds like there is a problem with the torque converter clutch or the valving in the valve body.
I suggest you start by looking for a code P1870 in the computer. Also check the transmission pan for debris.
Does it stumble with the brakes on period?
Ok, lets see what the crank signal, throttle position, MAP and MAF sensor do as it is stalling, not after it stalls.
cant read signals fast enough to get sound readings
No, I suspect that what you describe is normal. High idle to get things warmed up and idles down to desired as it is warned up and in or near closed loop.
No the vent is near the tank above the spare tire.
The P1639 is the 5V feed for the tank pressure sensor. The chart goes through and indicates either a problem with the wiring, sensor or the PCM.
The sensor has 3 wires, not 2.
Pink and white sounds like the vent valve not the pressure sensor.
The wiring diagram I sent has that sensor in it.
