    so at a stop, itll idle for a second or two but then cut off?
    does the time it idles at stops vary?

    if you drive it for a while, on the freeway or something, then come to a stop, does it idle better?

    try adjusting your idle screw.

    unplug the fitv i think, then adjust the screw.

    check your pcv valve too, my car used to do that and it turns out it was just a clogged pcv valve.​

    Are you throwing any codes when the car stalls/dies? It sounds like a bad iacv. Change it and go from there.
