Default chk engine lit comes on car stalls wont start

hey all, i have a 03 cruiser gt, totally stock but still fun.
love the car but am at my wits end with this one.
this problem has been ongoing for a long time.
car drives great great...until chk engine lite comes on and then stalls. sometimes it will restart, sometimes it wont but will restart in an hour.
now its not restarting at all.
just got back from dealer after replacing water pump, timing belt, belt adjuster, and some other things...cost 2k!
now it just stalled again 2 days later and wont restart.
any ideas?

Welcome to the forum.

If the engine light is on, you SHOULD have a fault code stored in the computer. Use the link below to get the code, then come back here and let us know what you found. The codes will look something like this....P0340

How to retrieve fault codes.
