A million different reasons. But, one thing you can check that won't cost money is to check the rubber tube going from the airflow sensor to the throttle body. If it is cracked, air will be leaking, causing it to bypass the airflow meter, and making the engine die. If not, then it could be any number of things and you will have to take it to a shop and get it taken care of.

O2 sensor, if you have replaced it already, pull it out and make sure it hasn't burned it again. Jeeps can be notorious with these O2 sensors.

More info will be needed to properly answer your question. There could be a multitude of reasons. Does your vehicle start at all? Does it stall while driving or idling?

30 seconds of idling equals one average start, on a normally-functioning start.

If the oil is low in your car, it can eventually cause your car to stall and not start. It can also kill your engine.

Maybe a throttle positioning sensor? Is it hard to start? Does it start then stall?

how does it stall if it wont start?

AC runs on the battery. If the car is off and you run the AC, then start the car, it will stall.

Start and stall out, possibly. Not start at all, not likely.

It sounds like you have a faulty MAF (Mass air flow) sensor. It is the big black square portion on the air tube leading from the air filter to the throttlebody on the intake. If it is an V6 I would also check the distributor since they are prone to fail and quite costly. If it is the distributor go on google and do a search for ford probe +HEI

Start with a good tune up, new plugs, wires, dist cap and rotor, fuel and air filter. Clean the idle air control and inside the throtle body, and run some injector cleaner through it.

Does it stall at idle, just after you start up? Does it stall when you give it gas - or take your foot off of the gas? Does it stall at stoplights, stopsigns, etc? Does it stall when the engine is hot or cold or warm? I would love to try and help, but you've gotta give me something to work off of!
