i had very similar problems with my car, but it only actually stalled once, but i had consistant tachometer issues as you described, another member here had similar troubles aswell. He cured his problem by replacing the crank sensor. My cure was to clean the crank sensor to make a temporary fix. There is a small opening on the cover for teh cranksensor behind the crank pulley where you can insert the tube from a can of brake cleaner, I sprayed mine down really good and have had only one occurance of the problem in 6 months, whereas before it was more than once a week.
