Why does my Ram Van 2500 w/3.9L engine just periodically stop when coming to a stop? It usually happens when everything has gotten wet and or after multiple stops as in running errands. I have replaced the spark plugs, wires, PVC valve, crankcase inlet filter, coil and valve cover gaskets that were leaking. It will do it more after everything has warmed up but even sometimes when cold like sitting all day by work after getting totally wet from previous rain. I had the fuel pump replaced about four years ago. (?) It does almost act like it runs out of gas and when it stops it usually takes a half a minute or so before it will fire and start again. But when it starts it stops just about every time I am coming to a stop at a light or stop sign. I can sometimes keep it running if I put it in neutral and keep the engine runnung a little faster. I was told a few years ago that my head gaskets were leaking to because it does go through about one quart of oil every 2 months or about 1000 miles. I've also been told that the fuel filter may need replacing. I don't know what to do next. I hope you have some good insight about this and await your reply.
