Buy a can of carb spray and clean the idle air bypass valve and the throttle valve, the stall is caused by sludge build up, you will have to have someone hold the idle high while you spray into the intake or it will stall, use about 1/2 the can, then shut engine off, disconnect the negative battery cable and wait 5 minutes, reconnect and drive a few days to have computer relearn idle curve, thati should solve your idle concern.

Sounds like you have a restricted fuel filter that is causing your vehicle to start sputtering because it can't meet the engine's demand for fuel and then dies when fuel is depleted. After your vehicle stops running, fuel starts seeping by and you can start it again with ease hot or cold and you get the same results moments later if this sounds right replace your fuel filter.

Have you had the engine scanned for trouble codes? You didn't say anything about a check engine light, but I think the computer may have some stored trouble codes that would have something to do with the problem.

the gas cap can make your check engine light come on do to not enough vaccum in the take for your evap system and it could cause the vehicle to run a little funny. but highly unlikly this is your problem.if there are no trouble codes or no check engine light this could be very hard to diagnose on-line you may want to take it to a respectable mechanic and have them run an on board diagnostic test on it
