Having the same issue I'm currently going through with my 01. It started with just dropping to idle and now it's stalling every now and then. Before throwing too many parts at it, look into an OBDII Scanner if you don't already have one. I did the BAFX bluetooth one and have Torque and FORScan.
Anyway, mine's throwing a P0340 CMP Circuit Fault. That code seems to show up inconsistently though. I'll clear it and re-scan for codes and it may or may not pop up. Even after it stalls out.
Everything I've found points to the Camshaft Position Sensor. It's super easy to replace. Unfortunately, I replaced mine and it still did it. I'm looking at replacing the pigtail today if I can get one.
The reason I say get a scan tool is because I originally searched my symptoms and everything pointed to the Idle Validation Switch (IVS) and/or the Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor (APPS). Unfortunately I spent about $200 on a new OEM gas pedal assembly (All sensors are built into it) for nothing. However, I do have a new pedal assembly!
Keep us updated, and I'll keep you updated as well. Good luck!
