STALLING

1995 Ford Galaxie • FWD Manual •

1995 Galaxy stalls when braking, I have been led to believe it's the icv. Only problem is, I can't locate the part on the engine.
Thanks

I would check for a vacuum leak first, then move on to the sensors. Sometimes a faulty MAF/MAP sensor will cause the engine to stumble while braking because the as the engine load changes, the faulty sensors don't allow the computer to react fast enough and the air/fuel ratio becomes overly rich for those few seconds and the engine stalls.

Don't just begin replacing parts. This will be expensive. You should test them properly first, and through the process of elimination, you'll find your problem.
