hi there you havnt mentioned if is a 8v or 16v im guessing with you saying that its a gl its a 8valve engine so the common problem for these is a idle speed control valve / egr valve very common for stalling of the car first remove the valve located on the inlet manifold and clean it with some carb and injection cleaner then replace if the problem still persists then the valve will want replacing
