Have you checked your ECM's wiring, it sounds like you may have lost a ground pathway.

have you checked the throttle body ? it may be sticky or stuck.

If u the read Information I already replaced the throttle body

have you checked your thermastat ? and ecm would seem a good place to assume the problem is happening have you checked it for codes ? and it if it starts to stall out when its warm and not when its cold it would come to think its most likely a tempature sensor thats gone faulty or got faulty wiring to it.
