Are any of the CEL's on? If the car has Electronic Fuel Injection, it could be the alternator failing. Have you noticed difficulty in starting it? Dimming lights or Accessory performance diminished? Ill keep an eye on your post for a reply.

Ok. Vacum hoses. Are there any leaks there? That can cause a loss in power as well as stalling issues.
