Hi there. welcome to our site!

I just read your request; could you clarify whether or not you're going to try and fix this issue yourself (will need tools and diagnostic equipement plus basic mechanical skills), or just trying to get an idea of what could be wrong?

Fix my self.

OK. First thing we need to rule out is fuel pressure as being the cause of the stall. To that effect, you need to install a fuel pressure tester to see what kind of fuel pressure is there as the engine stalls - should be about 60 psi? Do we loose pressure or does it remain the same?
