My 2005 manual with 162000 miles is stalling at traffic signals and stop signs, and then is difficult to restart. Any ideas on this?

Sounds like your idle air control valve is dirty/faulty. Could also be dirty throttle plate. With car idling turn ac on. You should notice that your rpm raise to about 900 - 1100 rpm. (Or hear it idle up if no rpm gauge). If this does not happen all the time then your idle air control valve is bad or dirty and needs to be cleaned or replaced. I recommend replacing it if it's acting up.
