WHY DID MY CAR STALL?

Started it up and it was idleing rough. It would start to stall out but it wouldn't and then it eventually did stall out. But I could start it back up. Then it would do the same thing. There was a burning antifreeze type of odor and the engine didn't sound normal. The belt pullys were louder than normal too.

Probably has a vacuum leak causing the idle issue.
Have the cooling system checked for a leak. Dont let the coolant get low and overheat the motor.
