'92 trooper stalls when braking

I have a '92 Izuzu trooper(manual transmission, v6) and recently it has begun to stall occassionaly while braking/applying the clutch(often on freeway off-ramps). Im just wondering what are potential causes of the problem. Other than that the vehicle seems to run fine. It starts and drives great.

It sounds like a loose connector or worn insulation that causes a short in your primary ignition wire, which of course, will kill the engine just like a lawn mower kill switch.

I had a Jeep that performed a similar failure. Only at the end of a downsloping freeway exit ramp, the headlights would go off for about 1 second, then light right back up after that last car body rebound. The headlamp connector was rusted loose and would drift away from the circuit during the final momentum of the stop, then fall right back to the circuit and was good to go again.

Snif the engine with your nose for a burnt smell that could help you find it quickly. The circuit your looking for is basically from the ignition key to the coil device. It should be easy to spot, and it may even run through your cowl below the windshield.
