Sounds like a bad IAC (idle air control valve/sensor) that controls your idle when going from throttle to idle. If bad your idle will act crazy and can cause stalls easily. Pretty sure that's it.

I have a 1995 Ford Probe 2.5@font-face { font-family: "Arial"; }@font-face { font-family: "Cambria"; }p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0cm 0cm 10pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }p.MsoListParagraph, li.MsoListParagraph, div.MsoListParagraph { margin: 0cm 0cm 10pt 36pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }p.MsoListParagraphCxSpFirst, li.MsoListParagraphCxSpFirst, div.MsoListParagraphCxSpFirst { margin: 0cm 0cm 0.0001pt 36pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }p.MsoListParagraphCxSpMiddle, li.MsoListParagraphCxSpMiddle, div.MsoListParagraphCxSpMiddle { margin: 0cm 0cm 0.0001pt 36pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }p.MsoListParagraphCxSpLast, li.MsoListParagraphCxSpLast, div.MsoListParagraphCxSpLast { margin: 0cm 0cm 10pt 36pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }div.Section1 { page: Section1; }ol { margin-bottom: 0cm; }ul { margin-bottom: 0cm; }

The car has had regular services with Ford and on the whole has been very reliable

6 months ago the car has developed an intermittent fault, i.e., whilst driving, regardless of which gear I was in or what speed I was doing, the engine completely cut out. If I was travelling fast enough or going down hill, the engine would kick in again. On level roads or driving in traffic, this was a severe problem and highly dangerous, as I had to use the key ingition to restart.

The Ford garages in our area are not very familiar with the Probe and are unable to cure the problem despite the following:

1 Diagnostic report

2 Replacing exhaust sensors

3 Fuel pump replacement

4 Fuses and relays checked

Any suggestions or ideas you may have to remedy this problem will be most welcome

some use just the alternater with a worm screw to put tenso on the belt or the alternater will have a slider where the screwis located that allows you to tilt the alternater up and down to put tenson on the belt

unlikely, if it starts the battery is good because it just started the car and the alternator is good because it charged the battery the prior time it was running. i would put some thought into a fuel supply problem, such as the pressure falling off rapidly after a start; or something getting hot in the ignition systrem and failing causing a loss of spark.

Jack the car up find the oil releas bolt which will be on the bottom of the oil pan. put an oil catcher undernieth that bolt then take it off. wait about 3 minutes for all oil to leak out reinstall bolt and put new oil in the motor.

check the fuel cut out switch which is usually located in the pass rear of car behind the plastic cover.

Your best and cheapest bet is to call a local junk/salvage/you-pull-it yard and inquire about one.
