Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. Before replacing the ECU (which probably is not the problem), can you tell me if the amber Check Engine light is illuminated at the instrument panel?

two different mechanics checked my car, they all said, it is the computer problem

Nornally, if the car starts up, it can be a reasonable assumption that the ECM is somewhat ok. More often than not, the main cause of start then stall is a leak in the air tube between the top of the air filter box and the intake manifold, or, one of the many vacuum lines on the engine. To remove the ECU, you really do not have to remove the glove box. You pull the flat lower panel off that is beneath the glove box. After than you can access the ECU.
