Besides rolling it over a cliff, I'd recommend finding the nearest dealer and takign advantage of their free loaner car. Nothing really else you can unfortunately.

use downshifting when you are deccelerating. keep the car in gear and the engine wont die.

but its a temporary fix until you get it sorted out.

At least get your computer flashed.

Mine used to stall shortly after I started it, when cold but the computer flash fixed that problem.

Yeah take it into the dealership and tell them your problems. There is a new computer program for the engine that should fix the problem
