WHY DOES MY ENGINE STALL WHILE DRIVING

2002 Ford Explorer • 40,000 miles

Car stalls while driving, has happened 4 times in one 50 mile drive, one time when going into a curve I nearly ran off the raod because I din't notice the engine stall cos its quiet until the power steering stopped working.

There are many possibilities for such to occur and if the stalling only occurs when the foor is off the accelerator pedal, it could be the idling system that is faulty.

Are you able to restart easily after the engine stalled?
What is the idling speed after warming up and does the engine idle erratically?
