Maybe your losing rpm signal? Are there any applicable trouble codes? Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free. To check codes yourself, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader.

When it stalls if you have to wait a bit before it starts, if it cranks good, have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If you have spark everywhere, check fuel pressure and injector pulse, engine cranking.
