I had the same type of problems with my 93 explorer. The engine would die, and after a short time, I could get it to run again.
My problem turned out to be a faulty relay. It was the electronic engine controls relay (EEC). It is a relay in the power distribution center under the hood. There is a box with relays and fuses. I think all the relays are the same. Try switching the blower relay with the EEC relay and see if that is the problem.
I have had to replace 2 of these relays in my Explorer.
If it is the relay, they are readily available at your local auto parts store for about $5.
