#88 of 262 Dodge Ram 2002 Stalls after Warm
Mar 31, 2009 (5:11 pm)
I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.1l v8 that stalls after warm. The problem first showed signs when slowing down to turn or at a stop light. Now will run fine until warm in Idle or Drive. Once warm the engine will not go into gear without stalling or will stall unless rpm's held over 1000 at idle. Have replaced the IAC and The TPS sensor. Only has 78000 miles. Any suggestions?

i have a 01 ram sport 4+4 since i bought the truck if it sat for more than two days the battery would be dead,put a new battery in it and same results.recently it will barely even turn over and when it does it won't idle i have to keep my foot on the gas to keep it running.so i took it to a tech and they said my glove box light was drawing constant power,so they took it out recharged my battery and sent me on my way.everything was great until i didn't drive it for a day and now its barely starting and if it does start it's a nightmare to keep it running. DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY IDEA HOW TO FIX THIS PLEASE ................BERTHA NEEDS YOUR HELP!
#90 of 262 UPDATE: '04 RAM1500 Stalling
Apr 05, 2009 (9:14 am)
So I have been working with my Mechanic and they see to think there may be an issue with the Vapor sensor or lines.
My stalling issues have been most severe after fueling and generally I would only stall once or twice shortly after filling up.
Since working with my mechanic we are running an experiment where I only get $20 of fuel once I pass 1/2 tank.
I have yet to stall and I have completed this twice. He says we should do that 2 or 3 more times to be sure and then fill it, drive it, and check it.
Apparently it was an issue in the Caravan, not sure why my truck and suddenly, but progress is progress, I hate stalling.
For the guy with the '01 that keeps dying, could it simply be your alternator is shot? I know you had it tested, but, the glove box light does not sound like the likely culprit, not on a new battery.

I have filled my truck with 25.8 gals of gas in a 26 gal tank ( low fuel light was on ). I drove about 5 miles and the truck began to run rough. The rpm was running from 1000 to 2000 going up and down when at a stop light. It didnot stall and I drove fast to the next stop light which was now turning red. I stopped hard and the truck stalled out. There were no ligths on the dash broad ( no check engine light ) . It would not start the first two attemps untill I gave it gas. I fell it was starving for gas and just shut down. It my be the engine can't get the amount of gas it needs to run when the tank in very full. Ask your mechanic I will take it to the shop and let you know what the out come is. Good luck

I found this on the NHTSA web site. Action # EA05018, investagation opened on 11/2/05 and the investagation was closed on 8/29/o07. The complaints were about stalling in 2004-2005 durangos and rams 1500,2500;3500. It reports that the autos needed to have the power train: automatic transmission:control module (TCM,PCM) reprogramed to stop the stalling issue. The report stated the autos were stalling at stop signs or at low speeds in parking lots. It makes no mention of the full gas tanks. I will has to experiment with a less then full gas tank.

I took the truck to the dealer and explaned the stalling and the full gas tank. He stated that it has notthing to do with the fill-ups and he reprogramed the power control module and cleaned "carbon build up" inside the TPS. I will fill the truck up three times and drive it and report back. Keep your fingers crossed.

You described the exact same problem that I have with my 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.1 liter v8, 74000 miles. I've replaced the IAC. It still stalls after 15 minutes. It will restart, but stalls within a few minutes if I slow down or stop. This is a pain in the next because I use the truck for plowing snow. I'm wondering if it could be related to the fuel pump. I had a problem with it about a year ago and I had to get it fixed at the dealership (local mechanics couldn't find the problem). Perhaps this stalling problem is realted to the fuel pump problem. I hate to take it back to the dealership. Let me know if you discover a solution. Thanks, Alan
#95 of 262 Re: 1997 Dodge Ram Stalling, Cyclinder 3 Misfire Problem [smkmup288]
Apr 21, 2009 (7:46 pm)
I recently fixed my truck and the misfire. Just updating to help anyone in need. I finally got so frustraded of trying to nail dowm the problem myself, i took the truck to my local shop. They ran it on the computer and found now that there was misfires on cyclinders 3,7 and 8. They thought it might have been the fuel injectors, because when they unplugged the harness's on the injectors a couple of them, no loss of engine performance was noticed. They tried changing the injectors, still no luck. They also tried the ignition coil, also with no luck. They finally found that the problem was with the crank shaft position sensor, and the valve springs. They said that the metal made in u.s. isnt as strong as it use to be and over the miles they start to stretch and not last as long as they were intended. Which doesn't surprise me at all. So they replaced the springs (all 16). Ive had the truck back for almost a month now, and it has been running excellent, even better then when i bought it, and it has 167,xxx miles on the clock. It will still roast the tires like there's no tomorrow. Cost me $800.00, but it was worth it for the the way it is running now. I just hope that this may help anyone in need.
