Your vehicle has On Board Diagnostics 2 (OBD2), attaching a scan tool to the diagnostic socket under the dash may show codes or pending codes that may give clues to what the problem is. Stalling could be caused by poor electrical connections, a vacuum leak, or a failing idle air control valve. A good professional grade quality scan tool has diagnostic features that may help diagnose the problem.

take the air intake tube off the throttle body and clean all the black stuff on the walls of the intake, push the flap up and clean behind it as best you can just clean whatever black stuff you see in there and be sure to use a lint free cloth and carburetor and or throttle body cleaner

sounds like the manifold gasket.
A dirty throttle body may cause a lower than normal idle and possible stalling condition. Performing a throttle body service will commonly correct this concern.
The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.
