Check for a large vacuum leak underhood (pcv, brake booster line, etc.)
Also check for a cracked or disconnected hose/line going to the air intake snorkle (large rubber tube going from the air filter box tothe engine. If one of these falls off often the engine will stall.
Is your service engine light on? Are any lights on, on the dashboard when the engine is running?

Go to autozone or an auto parts store like that. Have them to read your computer codes (if they can). They will read them for FREE. Post the codes you get here and i'll help your track down the problem. Meanwhile, check those hose as I suggested on the previous post.
Thanks.
