Pontiac Sunfire Stalling

I was driving my sunfire home the other day and stopped off at the store. When I was done and pulled out of my parking space --it stalled. It started right back up but as soon as I took my foot off the brake--it would stall again. It took me 30 minutes to get out of the lot. And continued stalling all the way home. Evrytime I came to a light /stop sign I threw it in nutral so I wouldn't come to a complete stop. Any ideas what could be wrong?

    I have the same problem. It's really cold in Calgary today and I let the car warm up for 15 minutes. After driving in stop & go traffic for about 20 minutes, the car sputtered and died. I let it sit for a minute and then it started up again. I had to keep the engine @ 2500 rpm's just to get to work. Could this be related to the fuel pump or filter? Or maybe the Mass air sensor?

Sounds like a mass air flow problem. It's located somewhere between the air filter and intake, but usually right after the air filter box.
Check to see that the big rubber hose there isn't cracked or ripped, check to see if the mass air flow wires aren't frayed or broken or disconnected.
Start with that, and ur check engine light must be on as well.
