Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
I bought a 1996 ford explorer with 134k last January, at first i observed that at intervals the engine will automaticlly stop while running and on returning my selector to neutral it will start again.But in past few days the problem have gone to the point that the engine now stops/off once i brake. I have complained this to few mechanics and they are diferently pointing to; fuel pump or filter,baterry, alternator and air filter. Please assist.
the issue would revolve around what slows down while you are slowing/stopping - reducing engine RPM's...... (alternator, battery charging). A GOOD mechanic should be able to diagnose this issue,, take it to a (older) qualified professional... (older=more experience).. good luck..

after you replaced the fuel pump did you replace the fuel filter also check out the EGR valve and all vacuum lines especially the one behind the throttle body

good old ford lol, try looking at the crank sensor its located at the front of the engine tucked in right hand side of exhaust manifold and gearbox, two pin plug, i have also known these to have no end of faults with the fusebox.
easy to remove, and solder the connections inside they all suffer eventually, if your not to handy with cars i recommend taking to a auto electrician, easy if you know how. Good luck Davelee

You mention no check engine light, and all the work you've done leave one solution; Your catalytic converter is clogged.
When you replace you catalytic converter your issues will cease. This is a very common problem, and a simple fix.
I hope this information helps and I wish you luck with your repair.
