      2003 Sport Trak
      Last year my 2003 Sport Trac (71,000 miles) started stalling while driving. It is consistently inconsistent. It stalls while accelerating, decelerating, in any gear, in any temperature. I can feel the power disappearing and when I look at the dash board while muscling it to the side of the road, I can see all the dashboard lights come on. I turn the ignition off and sit there like a moron on the side of the road til I can turn it over again at which point it starts and I putter on down the road. From my house to the base is about 20k and it can make it there stalling between 2 or 5 times. Nothing is consistent so diagnosing this is a nightmare and is dangerous when on the autobahn. Germans don't know how to work on "American Fords." I have had diagnostics run with no results. They cleaned the ignition switch? Box? something like that. It will run for months without stalling and then randomly start stalling again.

      I have seen other people's posts about this problem but there doesn't seem to be a clear solution, many suggestions, but no follow up on the solution! Any help would be so greatly appreciated. I love this little truck and don't want to have to junk it, especially if it's a simple fix!!
      Thanks in advance.
