I have the car listed above that runs well except for about every 6 weeks it will stall out. It's always when I'm at a long red light. It starts up again right away, and then there's no problem again for the following 6 weeks. I took it to a mechanic who couldn't find thing wrong with it. Any ideas?
Do you

This can happen if your engine has a vacuum leak, or the throttle actuator needs to be serviced. Also, did the mechanic run the codes? If not, we should do that as well.
Here are guides that can help us fix the car. Please go over them and get back to me.

and use this guide when the engine is cold only.
