Car dies when slowing to a stop or driving slowly

Question Description

I’m trying to learn for my class and I’m stuck. Can you help?

My 2003  ford explorer recently has been dying on me at stop lights and or when slowing down. The check engine light only illuminates when this happens and when i restart the vehicle it is no longer on. We have taken it 2 places to have the codes pulled and there are none that come up. We have had our alternator, battery and starter tested but everytime it dies the battery light comes on we are out of guesses. We have changed the oil, a fuse that was blown and the air filter just because our book listed thoses as possible problems. It doesn't die when the engine is cold it has to be driven for awhile like 20-30 min before this starts. Any suggestions would be much appreciated
