Take it do a different mechanic and get a second estimate. If the motor was gone it would be the other way around. If you would have pressed the accelerator it would be shutting off if the vehicles motor was no good. Seems to me like it can be an idle problem.

Sounds like you may have a clogged catalytic converter.
