Hi there. Have you checked for any problem codes, whether the Check Engine light is on or not? Those codes, if any, will expedite accurate diagnosis and lower cost to repair.
I would check the fuel pump relay. The contacts in them can burn, in which case, they will run the pump (often poorly) for a few seconds, but can't keep it running because the contacts get hot and won't pass current.
This could also from a fuel restriction or failed fuel pressure regulator. If spritzing some starter fluid allows you to start the engine for a brief moment, that confirms it's a fuel supply/pressure issue.
To have this all scoped out, I recommend having a certified professional, like one from YourMechanic, diagnose the stalling problem so that this can be repaired correctly.
