Car stalls when driving and doesn't restart right away
While driving my car stalls but restarts after a couple of tries. the starter seems fine but the fuel doesn't seem to be getting there. the car may run fine for a day and then stall 2 or 3 times within a half hour.

Re: car stalls when driving and doesn't restart right...
Fuel filter changed recently? If it just started this & you filled up somewhere you don't normally fill up, then I'd try some "heet" additive or similar to remove moisture from gas tank, just in case that's the problem.$5.00 test.

It sounds like the catalytic converter could possibly be almost completely plugged up not allowing the exhaust to leave the engine like it should. It just builds up in the cylinder head and when it gets too much in it built up and there's no where to go, it'll stall the engine. By letting it sit for a few minutes, it gives the exhaust time to find a way out and the car will restart.
no its more than likely not related to the trans,if you are having shift problems though,i would have the tps(throttle position sensor) checked out.another thing to check is the vacume lines to and from the egr valve and the valve its self for proper operation.
Sounds like you have a small bit of dirt or grit in the fuel system when accelerating it is drawn with enough force to cut off the fuel supply then is released when engine at Idle. 1 run liquid fuel line/injector cleaner in 1 tank 2 check fuel lines for debris 3 change fuel filters 4 have fuel tank flushed here is trouble shooting order less expense to greater.
