Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD

1 Answer

2001 Dodge Ram Magnum 360 gas stalling also!

Seems it will stall and re-start and buck and stall and then re-start again for about 15 minutes when it's cold until the truck warms up, after that, it seems to run fine. Sometimes as I'm driving at a steady speed, she will buck like a cylinder just shut down and the tach drops and then the tach bounces back up to the regular rpm. I also notice a loss in power for a while till she finally warms up.

It's really starting to !@#$ me off.

    Hi. It's me the Luker. I've changed everything except for the air control valve and the idle control sensor. I haven't changed the filter because it is in the tank. I feel like I'm chasing a tiny mouse through a field of tall grass.

    Thanks for the tip.

1.Start by changing plugs and wires. 2.Check for vacuum leaks. With the engine running, wigglr every hose you can see, to make sure nothing is loose or cracked. 3.Change fuel filter. 4.Check timing. 5.Check air control valve. 6.Check idle control sensor.

    This is maybe just a crazy shot in the dark, but, try changing your temperature sending unit. I've been reading about a totally different vehicle, but almost the same problem, and that is what fixed it.

My truck will not stay running when I let off the gas.

If you have recently replaced the battery, disconnected the battery or had to jump start the dodge, you have likely reset the electronics.

The result of this reset is that the engine control module needs to relearn the running parameters including the idle point.

It take several minutes of idle/driving to reset the baseline parameters and during this interval keeping the engine from stalling is a challenge.

Possible throttle positioning sensor. The only way I know to check for sure is to hook up and diagnose.

My 1996 dodge ram stalls out when I come to a stop. I have to keep my foot on the gas a little to keep the engine RPM's up enough so it wont stall out. Its got 192K miles on it. The engine is a 5.9l V8 360...

Is this with the AC on or off Or all the time?
When you have it in park does it have a miss or is it okay?
How long has it been since your last tune up?
Without Info I have listed.
A shot in the dark would be an bad high idle solenoid/sensor.

Stalls will not stay running after wormming up

Throttle position senser might be going bad. I had in the same problem in my truck. It wouldn't stay running unless I had my foot on the gas and as soon as I let off, it would die. Try it. The sensers are relatively cheap at Auto Zone or somewhere similar. Around 30 bucks.

2001 dodge grand caravan stalls

Check the sensors on the throttle body. There is a sensor that controls air to fuel ratio. If that sensor is bad then the car will run and then stall out while in drive. I had the same problem when it was cold outside last winter. If you dont want to dish out the money without knowing if it is that part at fault or not then start the van pop the hood and located the throttle body. Place your hand on the sensors and give them a little shake and then make sure they are plugged in all the way. You could also turn the van off and unhook the sensor clean the connectors and plug it back in. That should do the trick and if it doesnt stall anymore then I would replace those sensors if I was you. One more thing. If your giving the sensors a tug while the car is running and you hear it going to stall you could located the gas pedal cable and give it a rev or two by hand so it doesnt stall out and turn off. By the way. You van isnt over heating at all is it?
