Haven't had it checked yet. Problem just started last night. Service-Engine-Soon light came on. Then periodic stalling of the engine. The light would go off for about 10 minutes of driving then come on again. I drove for about 15 miles (in-town driving, not freeway). The engine only stalled about 4 times during that 15-mile drive. The stall seemed to happen when slowing down to stop at an intersection or would stall immediately after coming to a complete stop. In every case of a stall, the engine would easily start up again with the turn of the key in the ignition.
