Stalling at warm idle and not wanting to restart until it's cooled down are classic signs of low compression.
Take the car to a Mazda dealer and have them perform a rotary compression test on it. Your indie mechanic probably doesn't have the tools to do this (no, you can't just use the same tools as a piston engine compression test).
