Hi there. If the engine is stalling out, then check the engine for any vacuum leaks. If there are no vacuum leaks, then check the fuel pressure on the fuel rail. If the pressure is low, it can be the fuel pressure regulator not working causing the fuel pressure to drop. Replace the fuel pressure regulator if the connections are good and there is power to the regulator. If you need further assistance with your engine stalling, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
