do you have a code reader? I had the same stall out issue with my 04 & it was the cam shaft sensor. I watched a few videos and So I changed the cam and crank shaft sensors. Took less than an hour. Now I have new issues and it wont start so I think its the fuel pump/filter or timing belt. Good luck.
