Hello and thank you for using Just Answer


is it intermitant or does it stall at every stop?

intermitant 75% of time

The canister purge control valve is known to fail on these and will cause a vacuum leak at idle.


you also want to test the mass air flow meter with a scan tool


if you do not have a scan tool I would ask to have these 2 items tested as they are the most common cause for stalling on this vehicle


let me know if you need more help
