    If in the trans, its an overdrive issue. Does engine feel like its running OK and being "pulled down" into stall, or is it misfiring? Does od engage properly when driving at speed?

First place I'd look is the mass air flow sensor: remove and clean with a Qtip and carb cleaner. Its a bit delicate so be nice to it. After that, check idle air control to see if it's working properly. Of course, change filters (that's proper maintenence that should be done even when working properly) If after doing this stuff you still have a problem, get a manual and even if you can't access codes, there are specific tests you can do using a decent volt/ohmeter.
I think you got me going in the wrong direction with the trans thing. So, if it's shifting properly while going down the road, leave it alone for now.

First check the air and fuel filter. you could also have a clogged catalytic convertor. do you smell rotten eggs? if so it's bad. good luck

Why does a 1995 foed mustang gt just stall and wont restart.

Very late but for anyone else with this problem. I used to have this occur when I drove around for a bit. I'd drive and after 5-20 mins the car would just stall on me. It wouldn't start immediately and sometimes just waiting an hour or 2 and trying again made it start and drivable for a few minutes again. The problem was the ignition coil. I spent over $1400 changing parts to find out it was an $18 fix and took 10 mins to swap out. If the rpms do jump around a lot then yes the stator would be the problem. If it just stalls even while driving, it's the ignition coil. If neither, test the voltage regulator. Hope this help. Happy driving!!

I have a 65 Mustang with 200 Straight Six that I have owned for 25 years. About 5 years ago I started having problems with it stalling when I try and take off from a dead start. This only happens after...

Hello, I have a few ideas to give you. I am thinking the fuel line may have a hole in it somewhere and that you are losing the vacuum draw at low speed. You may also have condensation in the gas tank or gasahol may have separated and you are getting a glub of something other than gas that is rolling around the inside of the gas tank. When you go to stop, the gas moves to the front of the tank, leaving the heavier contaminates at the fuel pump pickup.

That being said, there may also be a problem with the fuel pump pickup itself inside the tank. As a note, for awhile the gas stations used a foam ball filter in their pumps. But when the netting detriorated, the loose foam balls were injected into everyones' gas tanks. (rice size pellets)

Another thing you can do is add a vacuum gauge to your instrument cluster. It is both nostalgia and functional to use a vacuum gauge. Also the proper carburetor setting is made using a vacuum gauge, turning the air mixture to the maximum attainable reading, then backing off so the vacuum level is about 1lb from peak setting favoring more air(more open).

I would be interested in what you found from inspection.

I had the same problem with my van, it turned out to be the EGR valve (emissions-gasoline-regulator) valve. It cost about $65, but well worth it!!! About a 20 min. job
