Unhappy Taurus stalling (1990) in mountains

I'm trying to help my 86 year old uncle solve a problem he has had for a number of years. I'm doing this long distance.
He lives in Colorado Springs and when he drives the car in the mountains it will stall when going down hills... mostly.
The car only has 51k miles on it.
I'm thinking of a few things.
Throttle body cleaning.
Since this happens when not under power I don't feel this is ignition related as I think it would miss or stall going up the hills.
Not fuel pump as I think the same would happen as ignition.
Anybody had this problem?
