Have a 1993 ford explore six cyl starts good but put in gear a it stall right away ?


In park or neutral not much load on the engine, when you put it in gear, there is a load. How may miles on the engine? How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? Check and clean the idle air system and throttle body, see if it helps? Check cylinder compression. If the compression is way low, it may be tough trying to get it to run correctly.
In the old days, carbed engine, no computer, sometimes we'd set the idle in drive, at least it was driveable, it wouldn't die every time you stopped at a stop sign or red light. Yeah, when you put in park or neutral, the rpms would go high. Sometimes, your just trying to keep it on the road, if possible.

Vehicle dies when coasting after acceleration, or when coming to a stop.


The first thing to try is to get a can of throttle body cleaner from Autozone or Walmart and clean the throttle valve and the idle speed control valve, they get get gummed up and that causes the annoying stall.

Engine stalls out whe put into gear, or when waiting at stop


Check vaccum hoses. Air leaks are more likely the cause of all those issues.

Car starts fine. stopped at redlight, went to take off and car would not move. it's a 5 spd 91 accord. put car in neutral let go of clutch and it kills.HELP! it's like i had my foot on the brake or...


One immediate possibility occurs to me, if letting out the clutch in Neutral kills the engine - transmission failure. Locked brakes would not cause the engine to die in neutral. Your trans is siezed - so if you connect it to the engine (by releasing the clutch) it dies. Your front wheels cannot roll for the same reason.

The car when hot or cold may stumble and/or die at a stop sign and it may also do it going 70 mph down the road. It will catch itself and start running.


This may be the early sign of a blown head or gasket. Check your coolant to make sure it doesn't have oil in it or appear to be oily. This is the first thing that I would check.

Your transmission torque converter lock up clutch is not unlocking, that kills the engine and is the cause of the OD light flashing.
