Clean the idle air control valve and the MAF sensor and see what happens-Do you have a check engine light?

The idle air control valve has been changed and the check engine light does not come on.

Does it starts back up when it stalls or you have to wait?

What do you mean by "back up" and the exhaust appears to be fine.

A clogged exhaust will cause the engine to stalls due to excessive backpressure.

I expect my suggestions be answered in order for me to help you otherwise you don't need us
