problem #2

The stalling problem is a major safety hazard. The car stalls when the brake pedal is depressed (in neutral gear). The power steering and power brakes also lose power, causing me to do whatever not to crash. I know of other Mustangs noticing the same problem. My car was serviced at the dealer for this specific problem, but failed to fix it.
