Hi,this could be a bad timing belt , you can check it by removing the oil cap and have some one crancking the engine look inside,, if the valves does not move while the engine is turning you have a broken timing belt.......

Starts but stalls after about half a second

check the alternator charge rate and battery condition as the a/c draws a lot of power and if the alternator is charging low then the rest of the electrical system could shut down

Engine is stalling when at idle while driving, would a loose ground from battery do this

Get the car up to 55 mph and if the engine smoothes out then replace the EGR Valve.If the engine does'nt smooth out at 55 mph then check the fuel pressure.It should be 41-47 psi with the key on and engine off.

Go out in AM, car is cold, starts and runs fine. Drive short distance, stop and restart, runs fine, idles fine. Drive about 8 miles at 50-55 mph, pull up at a red light, when speed gets down to ~25-30...

The EGR valve is unserviceable which causes a bad or insufficient fuel control for em-missions......Hope this helps you out........EGR valves are not very expensive.
