Try cleaning the throttle plate and iac hole with choke cleaner. Then have a trans guy scan it if it's a t/c code the converter may be staying on locked up causing it to stop

Normally when the converter stays locked up the engine stalls. Have a trans guy check it. You may have connection problem with your scanner as well.

A torque converter should be checked by a pro as well as the car should scanned for codes as well as the injectors

50-60 ftlbs. But when a belt is changed it should be done as a kit with tensioner and water pimp
