Don't wait for the time do below immediately

Disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors- Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it

Ron,

I hope you have already found the cause of the stalling problem by now. I suffered with mine for six months before I finally discovered it was caused by the crankshaft position sensor. I had it replaced 3 years ago and have not had another problem with the car.

The sensor has a magnetized area that, over time, attracts a build-up of metallic particles. I am not certain, but I believe if the built-up particles was removed, the problem would disappear with the particles.

Anyway, if you still have the problem, try checking out the crankshaft position sensor.
