Engine Dies in Idle

1990 E-350 7.5l/460
Last night I drove about 38 miles no traffic and came to red light, when the engine just died in nuetral. It started right back up immediately, and since then the only other time it died was when I had to brake really fast at a red light. It always starts right back up. I just had the timing belt and belt tensioner replaced 2 weeks ago, and sometimes now I notice my timing is just a tad high, but I only noticed it last night. Up until then, everything was normal. I also notice the transmission (e4od) shifts gears a little late, I have a higher rpm before shifting to higher gear. I'm pretty sure it's all electrical, but I want some advice as where to look.
Cheers

Throttle senor might cause those issues. I'm having the same transmission issues however no dying issue.

Maybe a bad IAC valve.

Have the IAC abd TPS checked. These are issues that I corrected on my 1992 Ford F250 with 73,000 original miles on it. Sometime these little "dudes" can cause a multitude of problems. Ah! what would us guys do without Ford Trucks. They are great but sometimes they are not.....Also, have the base timing checked.
