Cold weather has an adverse affect on batteries. The clicking sound could be from the starter solenoid not receiving enough voltage to energize the starter motor. The engine being hesitant to start and run could indicate the need of new spark plugs, wires, etc.
I'd check the manual transfer valve on the dash. They have a tendency to go bad after awhile. Cause 1000 different symptoms, and be the last thing checked/replaced. It's probably the cheapest place to start. The pump under the driver's feet is usually the last one to go in my experience, but the secondary culprit is normally the main pump in the rear tank.
Next time it tries to stall, toggle the fuel switch and see what happens. Same with a hard start. Back and forth a few times quickly.
There is one thing you can do yourself and that is to drain the fuel tank (save the fuel for later!) and put some 93 octane in, to see if that cures the problem.
The other suggestion is to get that list of fault codes from your mechanic and post them here. Make sure it's a current list - read the codes, print out the list, clear the codes and then run the car for a while before getting the fault codes read again. Then send us that new list.
I haven't looked up the spec on your engine because I don't know what engine type it is, but if it has anti-knock sensors they could be trying to ****** the electronic timing so much that the car stalls, maybe combined with some other problem.
