Just to add... Running around town today it died once and felt like it was going to die 2 other times. All three happened when backing out and going from reverse to drive. As soon as I started to pull away in drive the hesitation/dieing happened.

I also have the airbag light on. It is on most of the time but every now and then will go away for a few minutes. I didn't think this was relevant but I happen to come across some other information that indicated some components in the airbag system (the clock spring) might cause issues with a TPS.

I tried a new IAC from autozone but I had a hard time keeping an idle. It would idle at @500 RPM and die every now an then. I put back in the original IAC and also put back in the original TPS since the new ones seemed to make the issue worse.

Well, here's the story. One of the things I did a few months ago was to replace the O2 sensors. I used Bosch Premium. I couldn't remember if the stalling and wanting to stall happened before I replaced them or not. I put back in the original O2 sensors and the problem I had of wanting to die seems to have gone away. I post again if the problem comes back.

Also, and I have no idea why (any opinions would be appreciated), as soon as I put back the factory O2 sensors, by airbag light went out (has been on for a month or so solid). I think the airbag light originally came on some time after I replaced the sensors.

Thanks to those that took the time to respond to my posts. Hopefully this can help someone out.

That's really weird about the airbag light. That's a real head scratcher...

Airbag light has came on and went off a few times since. It appears to be an odd coincidence.
