Transmission shift solenoid, locking up torque converter too soon causing engine to stall. (This assumes you have proper idle, if it doesn't feel like it can idle, then a throttle body cleaning may be in order.) Seafoam (or equivalent) for transmissions might help you out, after you run it for a short while with the seafoam take it in and replace the trans fluid.
