    Excess stalling suggests need for a tuneup.

    If the car does not keep running and stops for no good reason, the first thing to do is to make sure that all the plugs and wires and timing (if there is any) are in working order.  Modern tune-ups don't usually involve a physical timing system.  It is a computer.  SO, a tune-up will check to make sure the computer is working correctly (not just timing, but also all the other minor air-fuel intake controls that apply), plus the guy will check everything else basic to running the car, to make sure there are no obvious problems.

    To paraphrase, if the car stops running randomly (stalls out), you need to have it checked to see that the basic parts are all good and working right, replacing anything that isn't working right (get a tune-up).  Might just need a basic cleanup.

    A tune-up is sort of the car equivalent of a person going to the dentist for a checkup.  Might only need to get your teeth cleaned, and all will be well.  Might find something worse that needs a more expensive fix.  Then you beed more than a tune-up.  You need some major repairs.
