Expert:  Pete replied 4 months ago.

O.k.,one common component that will cause this fault here that I have seen several times before in the past is a fault with the crank position sensor itself.I have seen this sensor fail before requiring replacement.This will cause the engine to stall when coming to a stop or red light or similar as I have seen several times before.

Depending on the liter engine in your model this sensor is usually anywhere from $30 to $120 and about an hours labor or less to replace.This is most common for this fault here as I have replaced allot of these before for this issue here.
