Stalling at a StopHere is advice:
  • It is probably the idle control solonoid on the throtle body. Take it off and clean it.
  • If that doesn't work, check the the fuel filter - it may be time to replace it. If that isn't it it could be the fuel pump is on its way out.
  • Replace your PCV Valve. This is a hose running from the top of your engine, going over your coils, into a rubber grommit. If you shake this hose, it should rattle. There will be a metal plug looking object. This is your PCV Valve. Replace. This reburns the excess gases in your valve covers & compression system.
  • I have a 94 escort wagon, and my problem was the Idle Air Control sensor(IAC). It is located right on top of the thermostat housing. I replaced it for about 50 bucks, and she runs like gold now!

Cleaning the Idle Air Control (IAC) may work, but make sure that the unit installed in your car is one that can be cleaned. There are two designs. One, which is a straight unit can be cleaned, the other, which has a gizmo that turns off at 90 deg. can not be cleaned. That unit has a special coating on the inside, which is destroyed when you attempt to clean it. If the car runs OK normally, but stalls at idle with the AC on, it is most likely a dirty or faulty IAC unit.
