    it could be many things, such as a vacuum leak or a defective idle air control motor, it is best to really have the problem diagnosed, rather than just guess and try parts.
    here is a link to a site with repair manual info for your vehicle, there is a small fee but it is well worth it.

    My sister is having the same problem with her 1991 Capri that you had several years ago; cutting off when braking at a stop light or stop sign. Do you remember what the cause of your problem turned out to be?
