Mine used to be a little funny some days... never actually stalled... but she was getting a little cranky.

As already mentioned... check the IAC valve as it could be full of **** or completely faulty. Also cleaning out the throttle helped my car HEAPS. Actually uses less petrol when idling compared to previously.

you could maybe check the exhaust return hose, little tiny hose at back of engine - if this has come off or is damaged can cause rough idling but otherwise might seem to drive good
