Usually if anti-freeze gets in oil it creates a "mikeshake" look on the dipstick,another old trick to look for a blown head gasket was to remove rad cap and run engine and look for bubbles after warmed up,a indication that compression gasses are entering cooling system.The stalling issue might be a funky fuel inertia switch which shut the fuel pressure off in case of a accident.You can unplug and pigtail it to be sure.I don,t think new switches are expensive.Some guy,s just bypass it.
