You will need to have some diagnostic work done to determine the cause of it dying.
seek a diag and get proper est

On that year model it is also a possibility that the torque converter clutch is staying in 'lock-up' mode causing it to act like you're driving a manual trans car and not pushing the clutch in when you come to a stop.Again something needing proper diagnostics to avoid wasting money.
