SOURCE: stalls when idling

This generally is your throttle position sensor or Idle speed control motor. The idle is controlled by the Power Conotrol Module/computer & shouldn't really require adjustment at the throttle body if the components are installed & working properly.

The symptom you are describing is a textbook example of a failure in one of the parts listed above.

As always, I suggest you do check your air filter & fuel filter if not changed recently, use an OBD II tester to provide you with any engine codes that haven't yet triggered the "check engine" light. Some single codes don't trigger the light & some do, just a good check you can usually have done at a local auto parts store. Free as a rule from some of them. They want to sell you the parts! Good luck.

SOURCE: 1989 Mercury Sable GS 3.0L runs rough and idles down and stalls

Sounds like you might have a stuck open EGR valve. Is the check engine light on. I would replace the fuel filter if it hasn't been replaced, also check the air filter.

SOURCE: I have a 2002 mercury sable it will stall out

Idle air control could be stuck. If so clean it with some carb and choke cleaner. EGR could be stuck partly open. If so clean that or replace it.

My 1997 Mercury Sable stalls at stop lights


I had this problem recently. It ended up being the Fuel Pressure Regulator.
It is easy to check. It is in the front of the engine on the fuel rail. Pop off the vacuum line and see if there is gasoline present. If so, this means that the diaphram is bad and the regulator needs replacing. It worked for both my stalling, and hard to start when hot problems.

CAR SHUTS OFF AT STOP LIGHTS


If it stall coming to a stop it could be that you idle air control motor isn't working correctly. The IAC it a motor that allows air to bypass the throttle plate when the throttle plate is closed. As you come to a stop the motor opens up to allow air in if this isn't occurring the engine will stall as it has no air for combustion to occur.

look on your steering system see if there is a little switch this is call a power steering switch or idle up steering switch this idles the vehicle up when under a load such as turning if there is moisture on it more than likely there is moisture in it as well these switches like most that detain fluids and oil have weep holes like a water for example when they go bad they leak replace it it might fix your problem

sounds like you may have a problem with your Idle air control valve, located on the throttle body. this is what controls the idle when coming to a stop or stopped and turning corners or basically when your foot is not on the gas pedal
