Hi Krystal, my name is***** actually seeing the car and performing some diagnostic tests it is hard to say for sure why your car is stalling but the most common cause of stalling on this model is a faulty fuel pump relay. I'd suggest trying a new relay and see if that solves the problem.
Let me know if you have any questions.
