Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
If there is rust or corrosion with the linkage this does need repaired and cleaned to see if this resolves the issue.If this was already done and the issue hasnt occurred anymore then the fault may be corrected.
One common component that can cause the issue you have described here is the crank position sensor itself.This sensor is located under the upper intake manifold as seen here.https://www.dropbox.com/s/ia1b013pnp1x855/cr-01-17.gif?dl=0
This sensor can act up intermittently and cause the stall out you have here.It can be difficult to diagnose this sensor as the fault in some cases because it may not set a fault code.The cost for replacement can be around $120 for parts including the sensor and about 2 to 3 hours labor.
The repair on this is up to you all depending on the condition of the vehicle.If the vehicle looks o.k. and drives and runs good other then this issue here then it may be worth repairing but if you have any other issues with your vehicle running or operating then the decision is up to you to have it repaired or junk it or trade it in on something else.
