If engine has hydraulic lifters, I have seen engine oil that is too heavy a viscosity keep lifters pump causing engine to stall on first stops in first couple of hundred feet but that was when I lived in a very cold climate.

I had it placed on a computer and diagnosed. This was the report. Also, I can hear it pushing back through the intake.
