Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks
Started truck and everything was fine. After a few minutes of ideling it started to cut out. Put truck into reverse, backed out of parking spot, stopped, put it into drive then it died. Tried restarting it and it turned over but never fired up. Just ended up pushing it back into the parking space. I have power and all the fuses are good. Thinking it has to be the fuel system.
I would check the ASD relay for power.

Testimonial: "So is checking it just a matter of pulling it out and checking for corrosion or do I need to do a voltage test. If do not have a voltage tester are there other alternatives? Or could I just replace it?"

sounds like you should start by dropping the pan and changing the filter, put cheap fluid in it or reuse the old fluid if its not too bad bring it to a shop and have a transmission flush performed with a good flush machine your valve body is sticking and this should clear things up please rate -jeff

Sounds like the injectors may be bad or just really dirty. You say that the truck is only used as a plow truck, so I would assume that it sits alot. If you dont add any fuel stabilizer to the tank, the fuel will start to degrade and the will gum up your injectors. One thing you can do is to pull the air cleaner assembly off and look at the injectors while the truck is running. Look at the bottom of the injectors while it is running. The injectors shouldbe spraying fuel with a fan spray of fine mist. If you see any drips of fuel in the this fine mist, that injector is at least dirty or on its way out. I would recommend that you change your fuel filter and then get some fresh fuel and the purchase some Seafoam fuel injector cleaner from your local parts store. Dont mess around with anything else. GET SEAFOAM. If it is in a plastic bottle it is not strong enough to do anything. Seafoam is in a metal can. Dump the seafoam in and run the truck as much as you can. This will help clean out the injectors.

It can be either the shift cable or the Automatic parking brake release.
With your vehicle stalling it sounds like the parking brake release is leaking vacuum and causing stalling.
You can check with Autozone or Oreillys to see if there is an aftermarket part for that. Then locate the Auot release on your vehicle and when you take it off, slide the parts within the fixture to verify sticking.

I have no idea if this relates to your problem or not but a fairly infrequent problem with Jeeps exists in some models if the transmission bolts loosen. Our son's problem also involved backing up (only; forward=no problem) and having the engine cut out as sometimes die. On a Jeep forum, a poster warned that if the hard-to-reach upper bell housing bolts weren't tightened properly, they would loosen and cause this problem.
