Try this, clean the throttle valve and the idle speed control valve with carb spray with the eng running, this should help, they get full of gunk over time and cause your kind of issue

Sputtered out and now it won't stay running; dies when put in gear.


Mass air flow , crank sensor . I wouldn't discount anything . Having a scan tool that can view engine sensor data would be a great help too , testing fuel pressure and flow and back pressure test the exhaust .
