Several months ago my car would stall whenever I would slow down (pressing the clutch and brake). I would have to restart my car while coasting, because my brake pedal would not go down to allow me to stop. I took it to audubon Ford in baton rouge, la for service. They replaced the idle air control valve. The problem didn't disappear, but became much less frequent. Today, I was on the interstate and had to slow down for traffic. It stalled again, and worse, my brakes stopped working. This is a very serious issue and needs to be recalled.

Car has stalled on me on four occations. Three times were during turns and I lost all power (brakes and steering). I almost had an accident due to the stalling. Last occurance was on 12/30/99. It stalled whenever my foot was off the accelerator. The dealer has been notified of earlier incidences and could not find a problem. This has been a dangerous situation. My children, others, or myself could have been killed or seriously injured since I have no control once the car stalls.

problem #1

Car stalls out while in motion. Has happened turning a corner, on a bumpy road (2" road construction drop off), and for no apparant reason. Does not happen very often, but can be very dangerous if in heavy traffic. 2) when trying to put car in reverse while stopped (coming out of my garage or a parking space, for example) gear shift refuses to go into reverse. Putting into first does not help. I have found that letting up on the clutch just the right amount will usually let it go into reverse. 3) seatbelts are much to sensitive. Just driving down the road you can hear them repeatedly clicking, locking and unlocking. You have to make any movement very slowly or else you will be snapped back to the seat. Turning to look over your shoulder at traffic will get you locked in. Extremely dangerous. Much safer for the driver to go without using the seatbelt, because they are more likely to cause an accident.
