It may be that you need the throttle body and air bypass idle speed control valve cleaned, this is easy to to, pull of the rubber air intake hose off the engine, hold the eng. at hi idle and spray an approved throttle body spray cleaner in, use at least half the can, then lower the idle and spray until the engine stalls, disconnect the battery for 5 minutes to clear any codes and reset "idle learn" system to base line in the Power Train Control Processor. Drive a few days to reset idle learn and this should cure the issue of stall, if not you may have another part failing.

Duplicate question.
I doubt the sensor would make the engine stop running. The computer would slow down the spark timing to prevent engine knock, but not shut it off.
