The vehicle may be having throttle body issues. There is a special technical service bulletin and coverage that may pertain to this problem you have. It will cover replacement for 10 year 120,000 miles. The bulletin number is 14582A. Call the local dealer to see if your vehicle is covered. If it is not, and you would rather have this looked at by an independent mechanic, consider YourMechanic. They can come to your car's location to diagnose your stalling issue and let you know what needs to be repaired.
