HI Guys need some help with stalling. Slowing down to stop at traffic lights or to turn a corner with the clutch down it will stall 80% of the time. I have had it at the mechanics and the auto electrician and they cant find the problem. This morning pulled the computer out and had it bench tested all came up good. Any ideas getting desperate now.

Check you ISC (Idle Speed Control). Its like a cylinder type shape that bolts onto the top of the intake.

On your power steer rack there is a pressure switch - that copuld be faulty
unplug it and see if that fixes the problem

with your isc, take it off and clean it out with carby cleaner and put it back on (ps. make sure you only HAND tighten the 2x 10mm bolts ontop or ull snap them)

or try wat nicko said, one of the two im sure the guys are right.. otherwise how high is your idle rpm?

Thanks for the advise guys. i have just swapped the isc with my NL Fairlane they look the same. i have just taken it for a drive and it seemed to have worked. The fairlane is now a little erratic but not stalling. THe xr6 seems to be good i will keep an eye out for the next few days. I cant believe the mechanics didnt check that first it seems so obvious. Should have asked you guys first. THANKS
