98 dodge stratus stall when slowing down

Ok, this started being a once in awile thing now it happens all the time. Whenever i drive my car now when i break at a redlight or even when a car slows down in front of me Rpms drop and car stalls out. It is a 98 2.4 liter. also if i am driving normal and i put it in neutral it will stall. I have read multiple forums on it and there seems to be no fix unless they fixed it and just didn't update it. so it went from once every two months and in the last week anytime I drive it. when it stall i can put in nuetral and starts right away. it idles roughly at 800 rpm when i start it. and think it was at 1k rpm before this started happening

    when i slow down only way to keep it running is to slowly come to a stop feathering the gas to keep rpms above 1k. If i have to stop quick it stalls

SOURCE: 99 dodge ram 1500 5.2 liter stalling on start up.

I took my 1999 Dodge RAM 1500 Club Cab in for service for a similar issue. It would run okay for 3-5 minutes, then stall unless I revved the engine to keep the idle higher. The second it idled lower it stalled. I thought it might be my alternator.

Anyway, my mechanic found that the mass airflow sensor was blocked, not allowing enough air to flow. They also found that the throttle body was gummed up. They cleaned both and it runs fine now

SOURCE: 88 dodge dakota has rough idle and stalls at slow down.

Change/thoroughly clean the idle control solenoid. It may be sticking and causing rough idling.
Cleaning it is unlikely to be more than a short-term solution.

I would start by inspecting and cleaning the battery terminals.

Sounds like to me your throttle positioning sensor is not set right. Try adjusting it or maybe a friend or take to a local mechanic.

2005 Stratus Sedan dies while driving


Most likely the fuel pump. Pumps have many symptoms and this is one. Once the fuel gets warmed up the pump will slow down or just stop. After the fuel cools down, the pump returns to working. Next time it happens use a soft hammer or some like it to hit the bottom of the tank, approximately where the fuel pump is located. This jars the pump and usually it will start back up.. Change the pump.

1998 dodge stratus stalls while driving if gas tank is half empty


You need to check fuel pressure carefully. This happens when tank is so full of dirt that the pump screen gets clogged. After sitting down several minutes, some of the dirt settles and the car can be restarted, but happens again. Refrain from starting to change every sensor without knowing what is the real cause, because you could be thowing money and not fixing it. Aldo check pressure regulator is functioning correctly.

You need to get the engine trouble codes by performing the "keydance" or using a code reader, then start checking fuel pressure at pump and regulator. Best luck. Amclaussen.

My 98 plymouth grand voyager was having same problem changed several sensors before finding a very dirty crankshaft position sensor. After removing and cleaning my problem has disappeared. Youtube has a video on replacing this sensor. Careful when reinstalling. Position is critical to far in and hits flywheel. too far out and will not start.
