Could be fuel pressure regulator or fuel pump.  Check fuel pressure.

I just put a new filter on it but it has plenty of pressure but i have no way to test actual psi

I ran into this problem a while back, it turned out to be a cracked wire running to my fuel pump. the vibration from idle or driving would kill the connection. All I did to trouble shoot this was run jumper wires from my battery to my fuel pump... if it works then run new wires if not it only costed you a hour or two and a bit of wire.
IF ITS NOT FIX DONT BROKE IT... something like that

stalls have over 50 causes,
when it does run ,does it have full power
ever get a full tuneup this last decade including cam belt>?
can you save the stall? , by fast right foot actions?easy, hard, impossible, 3 possible answers) all revealing...

in pure physics , far less causes.
engine bad. (cat melted, if no power when it runs) or cam belt slipped, if no power when it runs.
sparks bad, (plugs,cap, rotor, wire sets at 60k got those new?)
fueling issues, (rich misfire, bogs and dies, or lean dies, fuel pressure at spec) takes tools....
EGR stuck open it will stall. or near. its a 50k mile service point.

automatic or stick shift?
did it stall in neutral or DRIVE>?

if I could drive it, and see that my right foot does,  id go bingo.
and history of service, (zero?)
