1990 Ford Probe 2.2 automatic stalls in forward, reverse OK

1990 Ford Probe 2.2 automatic transmission with160K miles. Runs OK when cold. After engine warms up, it stalls when you come to a stop with the engine in drive. If you hold one foot on brake and other on the gas, you can keep it running, but engine surges between 900 and 2500 RPM. But, In neutral, park, or reverse engine runs and idles OK.

    I had the same problem with my 93 Ford Probe with an automatic transmission and did the exact same thing to keep the engine going at stop lights, etc.

    The local dealership chaged the O2 sensor in the engine and it ran fine from then on.

Sounds like a bad IAC (idle air control valve/sensor) that controls your idle when going from throttle to idle. If bad your idle will act crazy and can cause stalls easily. Pretty sure that's it.

  • check the air intake hose for cracks. The hose from the aircleaner to the throttle body has cracks on the engine side. As the hose flexes it allows outside air to bypass maf. in reverse the cracks close and in drive the open.

Cold starts ok warms up shakes and stalls


check engine coolant temperature when it gets warmer, or at operating temperature, and verify that the temperature gauge is showing warmed up to operating temperature. If the coolant temperature sensor tells the computer the engine is cold it will over fuel and miss and the engine will die. When cooled down it will run fine until it warms up. Also could be coil if it starts missing after warmed up.

93 beretta idles ok put in gear it dies highway driving ok but come 2 a stop it dies need help thank u


Does it feel like the transmission isnt disengaging and stalling the engine? If the transmission is automatic, it could be the lockout solenoid on the transmission. If it sticks, it will not disengage the transmission and cause the engine to stall when you come to a stop. Please let me know if this helps.
