My '92 Expo LRV is my mothers vehicle and it dies while coming to a stoplight. But will immediately start back up when restarting. The past 2 summers it has done this, it never did it in the winter time not once. So please any suggestions will be appreciated.

The car has about 140k miles on it. Check engine light isn't on, it runs fine when it is running. Has anyone else had this issue? HELP

Sounds like an idle speed control valve. Does it onlee do it while driving the vehicle after its fully warmed up? Seems like when slowing down the idle speed control valve isnt opening , or staying stuck closed when yur coming to a stop and its not opening to keep an idle speed. When teh throttle is open they are in teh closed position as there is no need for them to be open . But as teh vehicle is slowing and teh throttle is closed they are spossed to open accordinglly to keep a proper idle while in gear.

Well done.
