When it stalled, would it crank? Might be intermittent rpm signal, comes from crank sensor.

When the problem occurs, if it cranks good but wont start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the plugs. Also, check for injector pulse.

I realize I ntermittent problems are a pain, but, you have to test when problem is ongoing.
