Car stalling

I have a 1996 Chevy Cavalier, which I purchased used Two years ago, and lately I’ve been having a problem with it. I live in Las Vegas and so the Temps rub pretty high here. Recently, with three digit weather, my car stalls when I’m in stop and go traffic. I would have to turn off the car and restart it. The car temp gauge in car doesn’t show the car overheating. Could you tell me the possible cause of the car stalling?

Let’s start with some more information.

  • How many miles on that 1996 Cavalier"

  • When was the last time (miles and months)
    The spark plugs and wires replaced
    Engine air cleaner replaced

  • Does the weather make any difference (rain)?

  • “The car temp gauge in car doesn’t show the car over heating.” Does that mean the engine temperature or the coolant temperature?
