Check your idle position sensor/throttle position sensor. can be removed and cleaned, may need new gasket when removed. use carb cleaner and Q tips.

I am having fuel problems with my 2001 ford windstar. it was stalling on me off and on but always would start after about 30 minutes but this last time it wouldn't start at all. I replaced the fuel pump,...

My 2000 Windstar with the 3.8 liter V6 would stall when idling or at intersections. It ran fine down the road, but stalled at stop lights. The fix was to replace the Idle Air Control Valve. It is an easy to replace item, since it is held on by two bolts right on the top of the Air intake from the air cleaner. I tried to clean the old one, with spray cleaner, but it only helped a little. Since stalling at an intersection is dangerous, especially when you need to get out of the way of oncoming traffic, I opted to just buy a new replacement valve. You can get one from O'Reileys, Autozone, PepBoys, NAPA, et. It cost almost $100, but how much would getting hit cost if you could not get out of the way of oncoming traffic. Replacing it took about ten minutes. My Windstar is now reliable when I need to blast off from a dead stop after idling at a signal. My Windstar is the favorite family vehicle for mountain trips, beach trips, Vegas trips, and the surfboards, sleds, people all fit nicely.

Here is a link to the valve that I got a NAPA just to show you what a small simple, but vital, part it is.

My probe is stalling at traffic lights. the rpms wont stay high enough to keep the engine running.

Most modern cars with fuel injection, have to maintain a certain range of fuel pressure. There is a schrader valve in the fuel line. At this point fuel pressure can be checked. Pressure is always present. This can be dangerous, even at low pressure. Hope this helps lbreen

1996 Camry 100 km stalling

You have one of two very common problems.
Number one may be a stuck open EGR valve
Number two would be a failing Idle Air Control valve (IAC).
Try this: Open the hood & locate the EGR valve, close to the firewall, behind the intake. Find & take with you a small hammer. The next time that it happens, open the hood & tap on the EGR valve. If it is sticking "open" the tapping may dislodge the carbon particles that are keeping it open.When the EGR valve is open, exhaust is getting into the intake at idle, and this will def stall out the car.
There is no repair to the IAC valve, it would need to be replaced if it is bad.
One of these two scenarios will cure your problem, I see it every day.
