Engine Performance problem
2001 Ford Windstar 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 66k miles

I have changed the spark plugs, oxygen sensor, mass air flow and the van continues to quit at stop lights. I had a diagnostic performed and the results called for the replacement of the mass air flow and the oxygen sensor. The van runs as long as I am driving but, as soon as I come to stop the engine stops.
Do you

You may need a new idle air control valve, it's bolted to the throttlebody. Try using some throttlebody cleaner, with the motor off, and a rag to wipe out excess runoff. IAC may have a lot of carbon in it, Ford states, do not clean, replace!
