It has stalled on me twice right after taking off from a red light. I can give the car about a minute and then it will start up again. I have already had the throttle body replaced.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi,

It could be losing signal from the Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) Sensor. I'm attaching a special policy read it. It may apply to your vehicle. Please let us know if this bulletin was helpful and if it fixed your vehicle.

Thank you

We need to find out if there are codes. If there are codes then that could point us in the right direction. If there are no codes then this could be multiple things. We need to start with inspecting a number of sensors/actuators. Specifically, the EGR valve. If this is stuck open then it will cause your issue. So let's start with this info and go from there.

Here is a guide that goes over more detail about stalling:

Let me know if there are codes and we can go from there. Thanks
