Forget the fuel filter. You'll never solve a running problem on a Chrysler product by replacing it, except on diesel trucks.
If the battery was recently disconnected or run dead the Engine Computer has to relearn "minimum throttle" before it will know when it has to be in control of idle speed. Until that occurs stalling at stop signs is common. You also won't get the nice "idle flare-up" to 1500 rpm when you start the engine. To meet the conditions for the relearn to take place, drive at highway speed with the engine warmed up, then coast for at least seven seconds without touching the pedals.
One quart of oil every two months or 1,000 miles is nothing serious. All engines use some anyway today due to the use of low-tension piston rings for better fuel mileage. To reduce the number of complaints of oil usage all manufacturers have "min" and "max" on their dipsticks now instead of "add" and "full".
