1986 Mecrury Grand Marquis hesitation and sometimes stalling?

I have a 1986 Mercury Grand Marquis,with about 120,000 miles on it. Use this for my daily driver. Car runs good. Have this hesitation problem that I am trying to narrow down. When slowing down, to make a turn,the car sometimes stalls. If I keep my foot on the gas, I never have a problem with the car stalling. Always when slowing down and turning it happens. Any ideas what I can check to get rid of this hesitation and sometimes stalling?

Try this to see if you can pull any codes. Ford Fuel Injection » How To Run a Self-Test. How is the idle normally? Fuel filter been changed?

I knew I would get a quick reply here. I have no idea when the last time the fuel filter was changed. Was thinking about picking one up and just changing it. When I first start the car in the morning, I'll let it run,it usually stalls. Start it again,then it will be fine.

It's been awhile since I worked on those so I'll have to try to refresh my memory. Somebody else may pop in here with some help too.

i would do a fuel filter and also take the idle air control valve off the throttle body and clean it out with carb cleaner... maybe a good tune-up is in order too...

87_Crown_Vic always has good ideas on these older Crown Vics. He's done some nice work on his and others. Check some of his past posts.

Just changed the iac over the weekend. Car stalling out more than before. When coming to a stop,car dies. Car runs great otherwise. Any ideas?

Re: 1986 Mecrury Grand Marquis hesitation and sometimes stalling?

makes me think the sensor unit took a crap on you that is located on passenger side close to the windshield... it has a plug of wires running to it and 1 vacuum line... the 5.0L in these cars didnt have maf sensors but instead used a different setup that i cant remember right now.... i know with that being unplugged it runs like crap if at all... you might wanna replace that vacuum line also since it is usually all cracked and might have a leak in it since it is rubber...

You are not talking about the idle air control, you are talking about somethings else right? Passenger side, and 1 vacuum line? I'll check it out,thanks.
