Your symptoms sound very similar to a vehicle experiencing a faulty idle air control valve. Air metering is very important in the operation of the engine and a faulty valve, sensor, or air leak can throw things out of whack and cause rough running or a no-start situation. Check your service history and be sure all maintenance items are up to date. If you would like this taken care of, a certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to diagnose the stalling issue and can perform any repairs as needed.
