It stalls within the first 10 minutes - at traffic lights, or in turns or going up hills or even in the middle of driving. In all cases, I lose power but it kicks back in after 3-5 seconds. Once warmed up, no problem at all. Please help. Thx

Fyi, to help rule out some possibilities, here is what I have already done. It has been like this for about 6 months now. I changed plugs, u2 sensors, cleaned throttle body and air filter, used fuel cleaner also.

Check the valve clearances and adjust if necessary.
