    Your timing belt should be change every 60K. A loose belt can st this code. Your symptoms however sounds like an intermittent Crankshaft or Camshaft position sensor. Hard to diagnosis. A dealership can install a "Flight recorder" to see what happens when the vehicle stalls, however, it may be less expensive to replace the sensors. I would start with the Crank Position sensor. Both are relatively easy to change. http://repairpal.com/directory?address=99223&car_bran...
