SOURCE: low/poor idle
Here is what you need to do, a cleaning of the intake throttle blade and the idle speed control air-bypass 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

Hi Michelle, Check all the vacuum hoses for leakage and tightness of fit. Also check to make sure there are no leakages on the intake manifold. The problem could be the cold start, AC or steering up idle. I suggest a diagnostic scan which will pin point the problem. Regards John
