    The vehicle will stall out in stop and go traffic but starts right back up. After driving for a while it has to set, otherwise if you try to leave right away it will stall out twice but after it is started the second time it will run until I get home. The vehicle has 66K miles and there are no lights indicating any issues on the dash, also the temperature gauge stays in the middle and does not run hot. I have taken the vehicle to two separate garages and they have no idea what is causing it and it does not show any engine codes when they run diagnostic. The RPM's when idling in traffic is 500 to 800 and does not drops any lower.

    Welcome to the FFO!

    When the engine stalls, is the vehicle moving?
    Or is the vehicle stopped?
    How long has this condition occurred?
    Which engine does it have?
    Automatic or manual?
