Default Truck stalls when coming to a stop.

I picked up a 2001 Explorer Sport Trac today for $1500. Only problem with it is when you come to a stop with it in drive it intermittently stalls. So for 1K I took a chance. Almost like it was a stick shift and you didnt push the clutch in. Its auto. But then I noticed if I manually down shift from OD to 2 to 1st when coming to a light it doesnt stall. Does this sound like a Torque Conv problem? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Have you driven it without the overdrive on and see how that goes?

Hopefully you stopped before typing in that message

There's definitely something up. You should be able to drive with overdrive turned on. Did it ever feel like it was lugging, as if it was stuck in a higher gear when you were driving it before overdrive was turned off?

Was driving on thw freeway. Came to a stop on off ramp and it started to sputter and die. I hit the overdrive button and it regained rpm back to idle. Maybe torque conv not allowing it to downshift?

Might be a sticking or bad TCC solenoid.

I flushed it and it got way better but it is the torque conv. Going to pull it out soon.

Hope you get it fixed soon - keep us posted.

It's always nice when we hear about someone netting a good deal (at least I think $1500 for a 2001 Sport Trac is pretty good deal - especially if you're well on your way to fixing the tranny prob - so for a little bit of elbow grease, you'll be pretty well set up).

Post some pics when you get a chance.
