My car has an automatic transmission.

The vehicle may have a bad fuel pump causing it to die. When it dies, you should check to see if it has spark and fuel. If this is the case, the fuel pump will cause a no start and the pump should be replaced with a new filter. Have the systems checked to see what codes are stored to help with diagnosis of your stalling issue.
