One of the most common issues with stalling at idle situations is a dirty or faulty IAC motor, especially when no trouble codes present. Take it off, clean it up & port (hole) it came out of with throttle body cleaner, and then try it. If it cures it, great. If it does it again later, replace it. What's $5 for a can of spray & half hour of your time to find out?

powertrain control mudule is behind the radio another way you can get to it is inside the car as you sit down in the drivers seat look straight down on the right side up by the gas pedal there is a panel you have to remove its kind of hard to get off theres some screws holding the panel in place once you remove this panel you may gain access to the powertraincontrol mudule.

My mazda 2002 protege is running hot when ac is on


your car temp is hot because the air-con automatic fan/cooler on the condenser is not functioning. check the electrical connections from the switch as well as from the compressor. otherwise check the thermostat. the fan should run when the aircon is switched on.

Engine bogs and stalls


Check the air filter hose. My '99 Protege was idling rough and would sometimes shut off. The air filter hose was cracked half way around. I replaced it (easy just loosen two hose clamps and pull out the sensor) and the car is running fine.
