Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Check and make sure your coolant level is up. If it's up, your idle air control valve is faulty or your cold start solenoid isn't working anymore. Both are activated by the engine water temp.

Sounds like an idle air control valve issue. these can stick open and cause surging. That would be my first step.

sounds like a possible bad ground wire, you will need to find out where these 3 items ground and see if they have a ground point in common.

check your tps sensor, or idle stop soleniod. they both control idle. Its not a major problem it wont effect your driving but may cause vehicle to die at a light.
