2013 Chevrolet Malibu - Shuts off

2013 Malibu LS, 2.5L 4 cyls, automatic 6 speed that once it gets hot will shut off when we come to a stop. If you shift to neutral before coming to a complete stop you can prevent the engine shutting off. If you shut the car off for a short period of time, i.e. bath room break on the interstate, it takes 3 to 4 times to get the car to start. We have had it to the local Chevy dealer where we bought the car and they give the old stand by answer, “we couldn’t duplicate your problem”.
Thank you.

Have somebody try cleaning the electronic throttle body.
