Stalling

The wife says the Mustang stalled several times on her commute. She was in the stand still traffic that plaques the DC area, she put her foot on the gas & it stalled. Three times on the beltway, twice on I270.
Given the past problems with revs dropping whilst in drive whilst at a standstill & whilst in park. I'm think its the throttle body that's gone bad.
Anyone up for giving a second opinion???
Given its an easy install I might get the one on AM. Its $40 above the genuine Ford part, larger bore etc. Good idea?

No, that does not sound like a throttle body issue. Maybe an idle air controller though.
Make sure you can let the clutch out slowly WITHOUT touching the gas pedal, you should be able to fully engage the clutch with no throttle modulation.

Forgot to say its an automatic. Otherwise the wife would not be driving it.
Only other mods are CAI & Bama Tune.

You can stall an auto? Is she 1-2-3-D shifting?

No down shifting etc. Hence I thought it was the throttle body.
Now she says it happened at very low speeds. I've seen the throttle drop once or twice when I was reversing into a parking spot. Plus the issues with throttle bodies on the V6s....

Try this:::::::::

Disconnect the battery for about 30 minutes. This sometimes will fix a problem like this.

If this don't work try going to Autozone and see what their reader say what code is on your system. They will read your codes for free. ( At least they do here in my area)

I know exactly what you mean about that thick traffic around D.C. It seams that from Richmond all the way through Baltimore on I-95 is just a terrible place to drive. I'll be going to the American Muscle Mustang show in Media Pa in August and dread going through that area. I might just go the extra 100 miles and cut over to I-81 or go up by using the big bridge tunnel on route 13.

Let us know what you find out about your car.

I'm sorry to hear about the issue you're experiencing. It sounds like it could be a few different things paying a part in this problem. I would start with unplugging the battery, cleaning the throttle body and MAF sensor. If these parts get dirty, it's common to have stalling issues and fluctuations in the idle.

There's also a small possibility its within the tune. We send out thousands of tunes and build them all from the ground up for your PCM code and your mods. They're not just "canned" tunes, they're built custom by our team, so every once in a while it's possible we mess one up! We'll definitely get it straightened out for you, though if this is the case! If the cleaning of the TB, MAF and unplugging of the battery doesn't work. Give one of our Bama Tuning Specialists a call and they'll work with you to figure out exactly what's going on.

Our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 9AM-5:30PM EST.

Yeah I already tried the disconnecting the battery. Will go out & check the MAF & throttle body before it storms.
I put my tuner in last time the revs dropped it didn't give out a code. The check engine light didn't come on even when it stalled....
As for being the tune. I upgraded to the hybrid tune a few months back. Nothing happened for a while & then it started...
I guess if it happens after the cleaning I will run it stock, just to be sure.

Took out the throttle body, clean as a whistle. MAF had a fingerprint on it. All put back together. If only the loss of revs was a constant thing instead of coming & going I might see if it helped...

Haha right...I think the older mustangs were considered "muscle" now with these new ones I'd consider them "sports car".
