Could bad maf sensor and bad idle air valve have vehicle stall then hard to start for awhile and cuts off after 10 minutes of driving


I would also suspect the ignition module. They tend to work ok for a few minutes when they are cold, then fail once they warm up. If you wait awhile for the ICM to cool down, it will work as well as it can until it warms up again. A code scanner is your best friend to know where to start looking, and to perform tests and log data.

Have a pressure bleed down test run on the fuel pump, that is the most common problem that causes this condition.

The catalytic converter may be coming apart inside - the loose catalyst could be moving around and intermittently blocking the exhaust. A malfunctioning Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve could also be part of the problem. Sometimes carbon buildup in the exhaust manifold can cause trouble, but usually this causes stalling upon acceleration after coasting down a hill.
Put your hand near the exhaust pipe outlet while a helper starts the engine. If the exhaust flow is highly variable in volume (not just simply on-off as it would be for a cylinder misfire), you definitely need to check for exhaust blockage.
Fuel delivery problems (e. g. pressure bleed-down followed by fuel vaporization in the line) can cause hot start problems, but that doesn't account for the odd noise under the vehicle.

Engine stalls at stop lights and stop signs


check the fuel regulator,while running unplug the red vacumn hose and if gas squirts out the hole,then it is bad,if not then possibly plugged catalytic converters,drive it on the highway if you can, and stop and look underneath at it and if it looks red,then replace them.Check to see if its overheating,usually a really hot hood tells the story.
