1997 dodge ram 1500 stalls when driving

I have a 97 ram withe the 5.9/360 it has ran great until this week, maybe its the cold but it hasn't been a problem in the past. The truck starts up fine idles OK but as soon as you let off the gas when driving as lower speeds it stalls out, when you restart its stalls out unless throttle is depressed to keep it running. I was told it is the throttle position sensor (TPS) replaced it and the problem remains. The engine is new and so is the cap plugs wires and so on.

    I looked for a vacuum leak, none found. I replaced the IAC (idle air controller) and that was the culprit! thanks for the gracious guidance rudyclark64!!!!!

    1997 dodge ram 1500 5.9L will not idle

  • Benji_shs Jan 10, 2009

    yea i got the 5.9L and its been giving me a lot of trouble lately. It will often idle ok, but as soon as you hit the gas and quickly let off it will stall out. We just changed the throttle body on it so i dont think that is the problem, can anybody help please? What is the iac?

    my 99 dodge ram 5.9 litre, 1500, 4x4 wont idle. Just replaced the crank sensor because it wouldnt start, now it starts but dies when letting off the gas

    My 97 Ram has a 5.2L and when slowing down the idle gets very erratic and occasionally stalls. We cleaned the throttle body and that didn't do anything

    I have a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500, 5.9 liter motor. I have had the problems above as well, and I changed all the sensors, plugs, wires, cap, rotor. I've even cleaned the injectors. The truck doesn't die anymore but there is a terrible miss, only on the odd cylinders.

    Lots of cash later, the manifold gasket has failed allowing atmosphere to enter the manifold and disrupt the combustion process, i.e. a miss. The gasket change is very involved, but should solve the issue. Also, it is a common denominator for the other issues.

Check vacuum hose into throttle body, also clean throttle body orifices and iac. remove iac [engine off] and have someone turn key to on to see if plu8nger works. just a thought .

Does a 97 dodge ram 1500 have an engine to firewall ground strap and if so can you describe the whereabouts?


My '97 with the 5.9L gas engine does not. It's grounded from the battery to the frame and a ground strap ran from a bolt under the exhaust manifold on the passenger side(near the oil filter) to the frame

I have 97 dodge ram 1500. Once tha truck reaches operating temp. it will stall at idle. Some times you drive it and it runs fine then you stop at a store get a snack and then it wont start with out pumping...


A few things actually lol. How long since its last tune up? A dirty air filter, worn spark plugs and wires and cap and rotor can cause a poor idle and stalling. Not to mention a dirty fuel filter. The fuel filter is in the gas tank unfortunatlly :(
Try giving it a basic tune up " about 45 dollars" and see if that helps. Good luck.

1995 Dodge Ram 1500 stalled after it was running. Now wont start


Did you do any turn up lately. Was it rain or just cold outside. If yes you might need to check/replace spark plugs/wires, distributor cap. Simple solution for cheking that just worm up with hair dryer for 5-10 minutes.If helps look the problem where.
If wont help check the fuel pump, fuel filter.
Hope that helps.
