I have a 1992 Dodge Dakota 4X4, 3.9 V6, Standard Transmission, with 118K miles on it. A couple of years ago, I noticed that sometimes the engine would die on return to idle i.E. When I depress the clutch the engine dies. The problem would show up for a day or two only to disappear for weeks. It has become more common. I have noticed that when it is acting up (stalling), the cruise control won't engage. This part of the problem is always consistent. I can tell if the engine is going to die on return to idle by just trying to engage the cruise control. When the cruise control is working, there is no stalling. I replaced the EGR Valve having read that this could cause the stalling problem. Truck ran great for a day, but now we are back to stalling/no cruise control. It's driving me crazy!
