Grab a can of -throttle body cleaner spray, at local autoparts store. Remove your idle air control motor, (mounted on throttle body) , and clean tip & shaft as well as the port it is removed from. Careful not to lose small "O' ring. re-install after cleaning, and see if that doesn't cure your problem. After that, if cured & happens again, replace it. Let me know how that works for you.

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle 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.
