What codes are in the system for the check engine light? You can visit any auto parts store and have them read for free. Please list each one and I will assist further.

Have not done that. Just give me some ideas based on what I have done

Generally a stalling issue, but then restarts is due to a clogged throttle body and / or clogged idle air control valve. These parts get carbon build up in them and can cause the stalling issue you have described. I would recommend to clean out the throttle body and the IAC valve, and if the problem is not resolved, then to replace the IAC valve. You may have another (related or not) issue that has set a check engine light code. If you like, you can go ahead an rate my service today, then we can continue the thread when you do have the codes, and I will assist further.
