stalling

Now I try to be positive about our cars and try not to nit pick every little thing that isn't perfect, but in the last 2 days my car has stalled twice! When I'm approaching a red light I'm about 200 feet or so away from it so I'll push in the clutch and coast the rest of the way before stopping! I'll look down and see my instrument cluster lights on and my RPM's at 0. So far nothing bad has happened, but if this persists who knows? Now my check engine light isn't on so I know if I take it in to the dealer they won't find anything wrong! Both times this has happened my tempature gauge is between the coldest setting and normal range. Is this common on the 04 svt's? Any advice? Do you have to sit in your car and let it warm up for an hour before driving? I only have 6,300 miles! I don't beat on it and don't have any after market crap on my car!

taking it to the dealer won't do anything ive taken mine in 5 or 6 times and it still does it ..all the do is reflash the ecu and that doesn't do anything i keep an eye on the rpms when im slowing down i just give the pedal a poke or 2 and its fine

i get this as well, since i've put my stock air intake back on, but when i had the AEM CAI on, it NEVER ever did that even once! i think the problem is that the MAF is to close to the throttle body, the reason i think this is because the MAF measures the air going into the Throttle body, but when we go into neutral, there is some back pressure so the MAF reads some more air and gets confused and stalls, i'm sorry if i can't be more technical, but i'm not that knowledgeable in this area! but hope this kinda helps, but i don't know of a solution, if you find one, please share!

That happend to me only once and I was coasting uphill and my engine wasn't warmed up (wasn't even getting a reading) yet. Someone told me that this could be normal for manuals.
