unfortunately your question is very vague, what could cause it to stall could be a number of things. you could have a weak spark, your timing could be off, bad vacuum line, low fuel pressure, or a clogged fuel filter. i would use the kis complex (keep it simple) i would check your plugs and wires, make sure nothing is corroded or damaged, then i would check for any vacuum leaks, check the timing and go from there.

TPFI? If so I would check throttle position sensor or idle air control valve. If you need I can explain how to check if the throttle position sensor is bad.
