I had this issue with mine. Would come to a stop and the car would die. Would then be a pita to start, would have to apply throttle and hold it for it to start, then bang it in gear to get going. Then it would be fine for the next few months. It was intermittent, would just come out on nowhere. EML would be on for a while after then clear on its own.

in the end I cleaned the maf, throttle body and did an alignment and touch wood it hasn’t happened in over 2 years.
