Sure, coils could be getting hot and causing you to stall. That is a good guess. But, is it the right guess? When it comes to your safety and your wallet, lets not guess. You might be right, better off to check the askpatty.com site for a great mechanic if you dont have one. Gina, when you go to the shop, just explain to them your symptoms, not your diagnosis. That way they can focus on whats causing the trouble.

It could be fuel pump, fuel flow restriction, or based on miles it could need a tune-up. See a good mechanic

You would really need to have a technician look at your vehicle and diagnose this problem. I would suggest that you have them drive with you when you know it will happen, or if that*s not possible, try to give them as much information as to when it*s doing it.
Stalling/driveability problems are hard to diagnose without seeing the vehicle.
If you then get a diagnosis and want to write us back to see if we agree, that would be great.
