Make sure ur conection and grounds to the starter are good as for stalling make sure ur Rpms are higher to about 1000 for several min then run the roads like ur burning the carbon out of her!

Fuel filter is known to clog and kill an engine and let it restart a half hour or so later but it usually doesn't take to long before restarting, same goes for a fuel pump that's overheating. The car is dying because it is either dropping fuel supply our losing spark, no tools required to check for spark so next time it dies check for spark and post your findings.
