Check the lower radiator hose to see if it has gone "soft" Check when the engine is cool and stopped, grasping the hose and giving it a squeeze, you should feel the presence of a "spring" in the hose. That should be there to prevent the hose from collapsing as the water pump draws coolant through it. Without the spring, the draw created by the pump intake, and the resulting venturi effect will collapse the hose, cutting off the flow.
If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

those sensors could cause the issue, clean the MAF 1st, also clean the idle system using the following procedure, the IAC can cause cruise surge. I use this to cure these problems all the time.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve (IAC) and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) 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.
