Faulty or dirty idle air control valve and/or dirty throttle plate can cause this issue.

If you have changed the filter in the tranny with an aftermarket one, it could result in the stalling. I just spent over 1K trying to find out what was making my truck do that... the aftermarket filter caused the fluid to bubble which caused a sensor to stall the engine. Got a filter at the dealer and problem fixed!
