My car has an automatic transmission.

A: Without additional detail this may be hard ...

Without additional detail this may be hard to diagnose, however the fact that it stalls and then cranks again suggests that your battery is still working which typically means the alternator is working. I would suggest having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose and repair as this could be a wide variety of potential issues ranging from fuel delivery problems to ignition problems, but without additional detail this may be tough to diagnose.
