Engine stops running when braking at stop light, not every time

Asked by Apr 10, 2014 at 11:33 AM about the 2002 Ford Ranger 4 Dr Edge 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I approach a stop light and have to push the brakes harder then a normal slow coasting, just before stopping the engines kind of shakes and dies. I have to put it in neutral and restart the engine. It feels like when you drive a stick shift and you approach a stop light and you do not push the clutch just prior stopping, the engine shakes and dies. I drove it last weekend about 500 miles and it did it four times.
Any suggestions?
Thank you

Maybe the torque converter is getting damage.
