Your vehicle is known to have two common issues related to this. The fuel pump could be weak, in which case a fuel pressure test should be performed. Also, the MAF sensor (mass airflow) could be reading weak. A diagnostic scan tool will be required to diagnose this if this is the case. If you need assistance, a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, can come to your home or office to diagnose your car's stalling issue and make the required repairs.
