Just to get the terminology straight...stalling is when the engine stops and must be restarted with the key. From your description, I am guessing that the engine is not stalling but missing badly. The most common cause is ignition - plugs, wires, coils. Lots of other things can cause missing like a bad sensor, or a fuel problem. 3100 engines are known for injectors going bad. Search the archives here for your symptoms and check Techinfo on how to check your coils.
