2003 Mach 1 stalls when coming to a stop
#1
2003 Mach 1 just turned 14,000 miles. Having a stalling problem when pressing in the clutch and coming to a stop. The car stalls, I am able to start it right back up, but the next time I need to come to a stop, it stalls again.

The last time it happened though I had driven the car about 25 miles on the highway. The car stalled when I got off the off ramp. I started it up again, pulled over, turned it off and let it sit for awhile. Then I was able to drive back home (about 25 miles mostly highway with maybe 4 stops to my house) and it didn't stall. Haven't driven it since because I don't want to take the chance of it stalling again. Any ideas?

Just an educated guess would be the IAC, or Idle Air Control. I've had some luck cleaning them, and sometimes they need replaced. It's also a good idea to clean the entire throttle body. Hopefully it's that simple. Hope it helps.
