Okay. Couple of things:

When your car stalls, is it while you're in motion, or always only when you stop? Do you ever get circumstances like when trying to reverse up a hill where your car gives you alot of trouble? When the car stalls, is all the electrical on the interior staying on but the mechanical craps out? (IE no power steering).

Also, is the problem more prevalent when you're low on gas? (Definately below 1/2 tank, more below 1/4 tank)

I had a similar situation as yours (I think) and those were my symptoms. Two problems with my 94 SE caused it:

1) My throttle position sensor was bad. Replacing this fixed the stalling problems, except at low gas sitiuations.

2) My fuel pump (or fuel filter, we replaced both) was going south. This was ultra serious because at the end of the fuel pump'* life, I wasn't able to push the car hard at all.

Not sure if thats your problem, but I hope this helps you troubleshoot it.

There are 100 things it could be, 92. Don't just jump on something that someone else did. We need to troubleshoot yours.
