Maybe. But it could be the crankshaft position sensor or other sensor problem. Get it scanned for a trouble code.

95 saturn dies when stopping


give it a oil change and put a new fuel filter on it. you might have to change spark plugs and spark plug wires. also put some engine and fuel treatment. if that does not work put about 5 gallons of premium fuel in.

1998 Dodge Ram Dies at times when I let off the gas and stop


I have a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 with the 5.9 liter in it, i couldnt keep it running when i stopped at stop signs, the two things i tried, was taking off the air cleaner and sprayed carb cleaner into the intake manifold with the engine running, using the carb cleaner and the throttle linkage to keep it running, before i did this i noticed the throttle valves were dirty, so I inspected the air filter housing and saw it was cracked in multiple places. The second thing i did was reset the computer using a scanner then took my truck out on the highway and drove at least 50 MPH for at least a mile which re-learned the computer. I hope this helps you, it sure worked for me.
