My 1992 Ford E-150 van stalls after idling a while, when coming to a stop or slowing down to turn corners. The check engine light come on sometimes, but goes back off.

    Might be the Thick Film Ignition Module at the distributor. Pretty common I hear and hard to diagnose. I have a '93 E150 I'm looking at now (for 3 days) and I'm gonna try the idea tomorrow.

    Did this work ? For you. I have a 1993 ford e250 and drives and run great for 30 min
    Then starts to cut out and stall badly . Have replaced ignition coil , rotor , plugs, distributor , air filters breather
    Fuel filter , clean idle control sensor , and as I said in morning drives great get warm and problem starts have to wait about 2 hours and
    Can drive for 30 mi again then start cutting out and stalling has never died I stop and run fine at idle ... Oh yeah during all this it will always start and run just can't drive ? Any info please
