Question about 2005 Dodge Caravan
Since you are under the 2005 mini van column, you have a 3.8l v6 or 3.3l v6, with a 41te trans, Is this a high mileage vehicle, if so, you have a issue with the trans torque convertor locking up when put into drive, there is a valve in the vavle body causing this, its called TCC valve, they tend to stick if the trans has not been serviced at change intervals, only a experinced tech should attempt this, I assume this happens in rev to, even if you give a little of gas pedal before putting in gear,( drive), it still stalls, it is in the vale body. Iv'e seen this happen many times and expensive to fix. there must be a mill light on with a trans code. GOOD LUCK RDJRP

Engine stalls or RPM
fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
