Question about 2005 Dodge Ram 1500

1 Answer

Car dies at idle

I have a 2005 Dodge ram 1500 quad with a hemi engine. The check engine light came on but is not flashing. My mechanic checked and said it was most likely the etc valve. The light went off and it periodically comes back on. One thing that i have been experiencing is that when the car is coasting or at idle and I am making a turn, the engine quits. I am able to restart it immediately. This also happens when I am turning up a small incline but coasting. When I am on the gas, it runs just fine. I also noticed that when its cold the check engine light comes on directly associated with the etc valve per error codes but when its warm I don't even get a check engine light. Any thoughts?

There is no standard interval for the CE/MIL light. You need to get the codes scanned at a local AP store to see what codes you have.
