Engine stalling in neutral

Car Information:
Ford F450
Year: 2006
Engine Size: V10
Trans: Manual

Issue / Question:
Started about two weeks ago. Every morning engine is stalling when I put it in neutral approaching a stop sign. Does it within the first mile or 2 at one of two stop signs. Has periodically done it maybe 6 other times since 2006 truck has 56,000 miles.

Answer:
First I would scan and read the live data for the idle air controller.
If it is changing, according to load, it may just need a good throttle body and idle speed air passages cleaned. If not there may be a problem with the Idle air motor. Let us know and we will have you bring it in and check it.
