The engine in this cars drive train is fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM. Whenever a problem like this stall (or many other faults) occurs the computer stores a record of the problem in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a specail tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s)
