Re: chech engine light came on
Have your engine scanned for free at a parts store such as autozone. Get a code. It may be one sensor or more .my belief is that it is the Crankshaft position sensor or the throttle position sensor. If not , then the EGR, or other valve could be it. but it seems electonic in nature.

What you should do is check for spark when the vehicle stalls.If you have no spark then you probably have a bad ignition module.The other thing is You didn`t mention if the check engine light is coming on.If it is then have the codes read.Even if it is not you should still check the codes.Sometimes the computer will have a code and the light will not come on.This could give you a clue as to what could be causing the engine to stall.You might also want to check your fuel pressure just to make sure it is good.The pressure should be 52 - 59 psi.Hope this helps.Good luck.
So many things.. I would first start with the fuel filter. Check to see if there is a good ignition spark at the plugs once it dies. If not replace the power transister next to the distributor. It also could be in the distributor itself. If the spark is good check the fuel pressure. If no good, you need to replace the pump. After that you probably need to do or have diagnostics run and see what that shows. You could spend a lot of money swapping parts.
maybe try replaceing the ingnition modual. that part can do a lot of weird things to these cars. its located inside the distributor cap, really easy to do. about $40 and 10 mins or less. sometimes as they start to fail they do odd things sometimes but not always
It's more than likely that it is just another sensor. Is your check engine light on? Common sensors that can cause that type of problem are MAP(Manifold Absoulute Pressure Sensor) or TPS(Throttle Position Sensor). Typically the MAP sensor would turn on your check engine light and the TPS would not turn on the check engine light. Another possilble cause is the EGR Valve(Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve) and this valve also would not turn on your check engine light.
