There is nothing called "old age" that a car can die of. Something must have failed to stall a car. Personally I don't believe man dies of old age either, it is usually one or multi-organ failure. Age itself is not a disease.
The problem you described sounds more like a fuel injector failure. But you can always check the spark plugs first which is the least expensive thing.

It sounds like you have some Idle issues, but there are so many things that deal with this. It could need a tune up. It could be one of many sensors. My recamendation is to spend the money. Get it checked out. Then if they are able to isolate the problem, you can decide weather or not you want to do it your self or have it done.
If your are good at diagnostic work your self. Try starting with all the basics. Clean out your throtle body, change the spark plugs, have the injectors cleanded. When I say have them cleaned. Do not put a botle of **** in your tank and don't pay someone to put a botle of **** in your tank. There is a system that is directly injected into your fuel line under the hood. This bipasses all the rubber and plastic lines, and is neccessary because the stuff used in this process is to corosive. Which brings me to another problem you may be having. It could be a bad fuel injector. if its on its way out, some times running it at a high idle will temporairily fix the problem.
It could be an eghsaust problem. you need to check a lot of stuff out. If you get anywhere with the info and can let me know more. I can give you more info, with much more specific directions.
