If the "check engine" light comes on after the engine stalls, ignore it. That's normal. If it's on when the engine is running, pull the trouble code using a scan tool. Some auto parts stores will do that for free. In the mean time your symptoms sound like a sticking IAC (idle air control) valve. This valve regulates airflow to maintain the proper idle speed.
