Why does 1995 escort stall at an idle?

well, i have a 93 and it used to stall out when i would have my foot on the gas a little bit, just kinda coasting. i replaced the mass airflow sensor and my car ran great for a while. now something else is wrong with it but it hasn't stalled since. the sensor cost me like $5 at a junkyard and its ridiculously easy to put on. you should give it a try.
