I would think the idle speed control valve is defective.

Does it sound like the fuel pump or a sensor?

A bad sensor should throw a CEL/SES light, while fuel pumps don't throw codes(usually).

I have a 1996 dodge ram 1500 that when ever you let off the gas or make a turn the engine cuts off. Do you have any suggestions on what to replace

What kind of fuel system do you have? Is it throttle body , carburetor, or injected? It sounds to me like your fuel pick up is weak or your float bowl is adjusted to low.

My etc light is flashing on and off

The throttle position sensor should be located on the side of the throttle body or on the fuel injection pump. If it is one of the models on the throttle body it will be attached at the end of the throttle shaft. If the engine is setting code 24 and idles erratically that is the problem. If it is setting a different code tps is not the problem

2002 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7L will not stay on

sounds like a fuel problem. listen near your fuel tank for the fuel pump buzz or whirring sound while someone turns on the the key. no sound no fuel no start. does not necessarily mean the fuel pump is bad, maybe just no power.

Idle Problem when you slow down of come to a stop idle goes low

THis has happened to me in the past. My fix was to clean the throttle body. The problem began after my battery died. The computer was defaulted back to its original settings after replacing the battery. Once I cleaned the throttle body, everything was fine. This happened at about 85,000 miles.

1996 Dodge Ram 1500 won't idle

First thing I'd do is remove idle speed motor, or idle air control, same thing, different names. remove wire connector, remove motor, and get some throttle body spray cleaner, and spray shaft & tip of motor well & clean it all up, as well as spray in to port (hole) that it came out of. Re-install & try that. They are pretty common problem. If it cure it for a while, then starts to act up again, replace it, and clean port well before installing new one. here's a link to give you an idea of what your looking for, click on pictures to expand them.
