Hi, welcome to TSN!

Could be vacuum probs or just needs a service?

Has the MPG dropped at all?

only had it about 2 months it had a oil change at 90,000.looking at the extensive history it had a full service at 76000 miles,plugs,oil7air filter,polen filter,fuel filter,87,000 it had a oil and air filter.it starts easy enough after it has stalled.i looked at the air filter just see if was clean and put it back.short time after its started stalling.

It sounds to be related to the air filter then. I'd take it out again and inspect it / reassmble it. Is it a standard filter or upgrade.

Alternatively I would take the car to a decent independent garage and let them run the diagnostics.

Test the pump first. See if any fuel is coming through.

There is a danger of replacing unnecessary parts. I'd get it professionally diagnosed and fixed as it might be cheaper in the long run. Once fixed you can then drive & forget!
