so far it hasnt, it sounds like a working car Pretty much, you would never know that this was happening until you experience it for yourself youd think the car works perfectly fine...then BOOM it dies

you could just need a tune up my friends car did the same thing when they let off of the gas and it did need an oil change as well. so im guessing a tune up or a simple oil change.

Do you have any check engine lights? Check the (IAC) Idle Air Control sensor that is where I would start.

yea i checked

What sensors have u checked?

I know for a fact it's the engine timing, my car has the same issue and i'm fixing it next week. If you want a mechanic to do it, the job will cost 600-800 dollars. If you do it yourself, the parts will cost $200 maximum, but it's a rough job.
