I had a intake hose on my old Mazda that had a tear on the bottom and when I would leave a stop light it would bog down and die and also start right back up. With that hose a tear or even being lose would cause that dying issue. So check everything out and report back.
Looking for a tear or hole on the intake hose is an easy place to start. A leak downstream from the MAF will confuse the engine management and cause stalling. Temporary fix is duct tape until you get over what the replacement hose costs.
