SOURCE: vam stalling
there are too many reasons...
it could be fuel pump,, it could be ignition coil overheating, it could be the computer itself...
you need two things for the engine to run,
1 is gas
2nd is ignition,,
with these two misfiring or your loosing one of them, it will stall...
i hope i was able to give you some thoughts....

several things can do this but most likely would be
1 TPS trottle postion sensor = replace
2 stuck butterfly valve inside the trottle body = clean out with trottle body cleaner try to get most of the black build up with a old tooth brush
3 bad trottle cable= feel the cable make sure it moves freely if not replace it

Sounds like you may have a vacuum line off or ruptured going to the EGR valve. The burning smell is probably the catalytic converter. When the engine runs rich you will get a sulfur smell that smells sort of like rotten eggs.
