DODGE RAM ENGINE PROBLEM

2002 Dodge Ram • 53,000 miles

Truck runs good until you stop, than it stalls and it will start right up again, It may do this many times trying to move forward or backwords than it runs good untill the next time. It shows no code, fuel pressure is good and checked. It does this after you drive normal for 6-10 miles never the same. It has us stumped

Thank you.

Sounds like the battery might have been disconnected or run dead recently. If so, the Engine Computer lost its memory and has to relearn "minimum throttle" before it will know when it must be in control of idle speed. It also might not give you the normal "idle flare-up" to 1500 rpm when you start the engine. To meet the conditions for the relearn to take place, drive at highway speed with the engine warmed up, then coast for at least seven seconds without touching the brake or gas pedals.

Try disconnecting the TCC solenoid and see if it'll work and also refer to this walk thru link: http://www.2carpros.com/articles/engine-stalls
