    Ignition system arts that are failing or marginal can certainly cause a car to stall but fuel issues,and other sensor problems, vacuum leaks ect.. can all cause stalling problems. I hate replacing parts without "knowing" what is wrong. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
