Engine stalled twice in 3 days, once while I was slowing to make a turn and a second time when I was just coasting without steping on the gas pedal. I was able to restart the engine okay right afterwards. I have taken the car to the dealer who said there was tsb for this problem. The fix was to reprogram the computer. If this is the case, why don't they do a recall and reprogram all of the Tributes if this is such a wide spread problem? I think this a very dangerous situation to have your car stall while you are turning/stopping/coasting. If this does not fix the problem, I will file another report with you. Nlm
