Recently my car has started to have a problem with stalling. I would be driving the car, even at speeds of 40mph and it would just randomly stall. The engine check light does not come on, and when I restart the car it starts right up like nothing is wrong. Also, when I get in the car to start it up after not driving it for a while, it will start and then just stall right out. Sometimes it will do this two or three times before starting up and staying running. I'm confused about this because I don't know if it's a battery issue, or maybe alternator/spark plugs. Please help :). Thanks!

You might add in to the mix the possibility that the fuel pressure is not right. Could be a fuel pressure regulator.

Sounds like it may have an Idle Air Control (IAC) valve that is sticking. Carbon will build up inside the pintle in the valve and cause it to stick. New part costs around $250.00, easy to install. After replacing clean the throttle body also/
