02 Gt Stalling coming to a stop

Okay, here is what is going on. I usually drive my car hard. It's a weekend vehicle only. While driving today, normal driving, I exited the freeway. I was slowing down, pushed in the clutch, waiting to come to a complete stop at the light. My car was still rolling about 20 mph, engine stalls! It did this same thing four times today, same situation. I was able to pop the clutch to restart and gain my steering and power brakes. I had a custom tune from AM a few weeks ago. i initially had an issue with the launch rpm setting, but they corrected that. I have never had this problem and am not really sure what is going on. Any ideas where to look? No check engine light on at all after the restart, only when it dies.

Had the same thing a year ago in my 01 GT it's the idle air control valve, carbon corrosion builds up on the plunger so when you're car goes to idle ( disengaging your clutch ) it try's to open back up to keep the engine alive and it doesn't because it's all gunked up. Just take it off and clean it out with carburetor cleaner real well and you should be good as new. Don't buy a new one they are $50 or more and it's not going out just needs cleaned.

Thanks for the quick response. I will try to clean it in the morning and see if that corrects the problem.

It was the iac. Cleaned it and it helped. Replaced it and it completely took care it.

Hey awesome I hate those things when they go bad. I've had so many people have the same problem in a lot of cars and they think they have an engine problem when it's just a simple fix. Glad to hear the Stang is doing better.
