Does stall mean shut off or just run very shaky. The vehicle sounds of balance. and causing vibrations
My experience with bad/spun bearings is this. When it happens (bearing actually dies) the motor stalls. You think, this is not like my car and try to restart. It won't start w/o a little help by giving it some extra fuel. You hear a rythmic deep clunk in the motor and oil pressure is either very low or non existant.
It almost sounds like your car runs, but horribly and makes bad sounding noises. So far you haven't mentioned oil pressure. Once you begin to diagnose this, check out the harmonic balancer. While I've never seen one yet...willwrens description for a different post sounds similiar if you still have oil pressure and no holes in the motor. Hopefully you can come back to us with only a harmonic balancer.
