Hi and welcome to the forum.

The stalling issue is a common topic on this forum; likely culprits are a cracked PCV hose or dirty/failed IAC valve. If you type those terms into the search box, you'll find more than enuf info.

i had the same issue mostly when coming to a stop. the car would die. i had another focus that came into our honda shop and it had the same issue, died while shifting or rolling to a stop. replaced that iac and the car drove nicely. the iac valve underneath your intake manifold is most likely your culprit. not that expensive of a part.
