Answer

Check the EGR valve. An EGR valve that is open at idle will cause a car to stall. An EGR should be closed at idle and open when you are driving around.

Answer

Also check the TCC (Torque Converter Clutch) solenoid. It's part of the tranmission. The TCC locks the car into gear at higher speeds, as if it were a manual transmission, to eliminate slippage and save gasoline. If it stays locked up when you come to a stop, the car bucks and stalls (just like if you forgot to step on the clutch in a stickshift car).

I had this happen on my 4.0 96 after I replaced my serpentine belt. Upon re-assembly, I had neglected to tighten one of the air intake duct's hose clamps. Since securing the hose clamp, it's running great again.

Some things that can cause a car to stall while driving it include a bad fuel pump, running out of gas, and low fuel pressure. A clogged catalytic converter can also cause this to happen.

If you have the 2.3 engine, one possibility is sludge in the Throttle Body.

An engine usually has a higher idle speed when the ac is running. If the high speed idle does not operate then the ac will cause the engine to stall.

There are several reasons an engine may stall while driving, here are three.The fuel tank is empty and the engine is starved of fuel.Not enough power to climb a hill causing a stall.Faulty or damp electronics on a petrol engine can also cause a stall.

If the check engine light has come on, have the codes read. That would be a good place to start.

The most likely cause of a 1992 Ford Aerostar stalling while idling is bad spark plugs. The plugs should be changed and the timing checked to resolve the problem.

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

When driving the IAC does not do anything because the car is not at an idle

The most common cause of a automobile stalling, while driving, is and electronic fuel pump going bad. The vehicle will begin to stall more and more and eventually not run at all.

It depends on the gearing of the car. If you are in the highest gear and 40mph in that gear is under the idle rpm of that car than you will stall.

There are several things which could be causing the car to stall out while driving. The most common and least difficult problem is that the spark plugs may need to be changed.

I have a 95 galant that would just quit running at a stop or even driving it would just loose all electrical power. It turned out to be the cheap alarm system they put in it. when i removed the alarm it quit having the problem.

I have a 1994 that would stall. The battery cables were corroded. Any number of possibilities: Fuel pump, partially blocked fuel filter, electronic ignition problems, or any electronic component that fails after it's been running. A dead battery.

Your car may stall or stop running after idle because of a problem with its fuel or electrical system.
