These items are not connected. You have a couple of fault codes that are tied to different malfunctions. The crankshaft position sensor may cause stalling or a rough idle. A stuck on torque converter clutch may cause stalling when the vehicle is slowing down or transmission slipping. Consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic who can come by, scan the codes with a professional scanner and observe the vehicle data in order to offer a more personal diagnosis and estimate on the repairs.
