Most likely crank sensor.... Pain to even see it, much less change it! Better have some testing done!... Woods Auto Service maybe.

So dont think its a fuel flow problem? Just asking cause i had a honda accord similar issues that ended up being a fuel pump relay

Anything is possible but you stated pressure is good so I figure that's not your trouble!..... Next time it stalls... Check for ignition spark!! Let me know if you need to know how....

IF no spark... Suspect crank sensor!
