    Does it stall only when it is moving or coming to a stop? Or does it do when it is parked idling also?

Could be fuel filter clogged //fuel pump is going bad which you will need to have a pressure test done ...also is there a gas odor ? could be rusted lines could be air filter ....messing with the timing you should not move to much ...if you have brake /carb choke cleaner try spraying around the intake manifold to see if any change in performance such as lowering the rpm's which would mean a gasket leak are all the Vacuum lines good and not dry-rotted try bending them ans well as spraying with a squirt bottle of water on the plug wires to see if an Arc is present a bad plug wire ..these are a few areas in which i would consider 1st ..hope this helps you

After 24hrs of driving, 1994 Dodge Ram Van B250, I have to jump start it.... What maybe causing this??? Help...

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

1990 dodge b250 318 tbi... pulled codes from ecu... results= 12, 21, and 55. Fuel system is very rich causing flooding and stalling. I would appreciate any input you can provide. I also had a problem...

code 21 is for the oxygen sensor. This controls the mixture of the fuel going into the engine. the sensor may be bad or its connector may be dirty or faulty.

Check for proper engine ground and ground to chassis for dirty or loose connections.

Check these items if problem persists after O2 sensor repair.

2003 dodge ram 5.7L intermittently has a rough idle and an idle rpm of 500 I think the normal is 650. When I put it in gear the idle picks up and smooths out. Sometimes it will do this in gear and stall...

okay, the o2 code can cause problems, theres a problem with one of the o2 sensors, theres 2 or 4 sensors,the repair was not done right or theres another bad o2 sensor, next thing i would check is the idle air control motor,this sounds like it sticks at time or just stops working,start with these things first,
