Question about Cars & Trucks
If you have a carby then check the operation of the shut off solenoid needle in the idle circuit at the base of the carby. The condition you describe is called --run on -- and occurs when there is still fuel getting into the cylinders and being ignited by hot points inside the chamber. If you have fuel injection the leaking injector tips and excessive fuel manifold pressure will do tea same thing.

SOURCE: car stalling intermitatly
This problem has probably been solve by now but I will still give a possible solution to ones who have the same problem ,it happens regularly on most Daewoo models,I have had 4 different models my current one a Lanos. The problem is usually located with removing the stepper motor or another name for it is the idle control valve.they cannot be fixed but replaced.what happens , you have irregular idle or your engine sticks at 2000 to 3000 rpm.They are easy to remove and replace but they have got be set at the engine specifications.another reason for stalling problems could be to do with the thermostat is faulty or missing ,sounds strange but because todays cars are mostly run by computer it affects many of the systems , I hope this is helpful.

There are a couple of things you can check. Ford used two fuel filters on some vehicles, but you don't see much information about the one mount on the frame because they expect it to last for the life of the vehicle. The one of coarse is on the firewall and you probably changed that.
To find out if you have the second filter and it's more likely that you do than don't.
Look along the inside of the frame between your high pressure pump and the fuel tank[mine is where the skid plate that protects the transmission is located and I have to drop the skid plate to reach it] see if the fuel lines run into a round looking plastic box that is mounted behind a metal shield, if you see it you will need to remove the shield to reach it. It's necessary to unscew the canister and replace the cartridge which most auto parts stores carry.I found it easier to work on if I remove the fuel lines then took the filter unit out, but you may not have to.
Another thing you can check is the fuel pressure regulator. Especially if you have the vacuum type regulator, because the diaphram can develop a pin hole that leaks raw fuel into the intake manifold and cause alot of squirrelly problems. The leak can eventually become bad enough to fill the cylinders with raw fuel and lock up the engine because unlike air liquid can not be compressed.

sounds like ignition module inside of distributor cap under distributor rotor button.these do go bad and can easily be replaced.strong suspicion from your details that this is the culprit.

No clicking mean no power to the solenoid to engage the contact for the starter. If starter is not turning, you will not have spark. It stalled when you drove since not power to turn on the Electronic Fuel injection so you don't have gas. Now you don't have electric to your starter, then I suggest that you have some one to check ECM before starting replacing Starter, Fuel Injection...

Engine stalling and rough run
issue at low speeds
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
