#172 of 267 Truck shuts off on left turns??
Jun 14, 2010 (5:51 pm)
Hi all. I am not very mechanically inclined and I am hoping for some insight to my problem. Recently my truck started shutting off on left turns. It occasionally does the same thing when I put it in reverse. It always starts right back up again with no issue but I have to be almost at a full stop to take a left turn. Auto Zone showed an error with timing belt OR with the computer. I just dont want to get hosed at the garage. I seem to have weird things going on with the electrical also (random lights and dings popping on and off). This all started after getting my radiator replaced and power washing the grime off my engine and inside hood. Thanks for your time!!
#173 of 267 2002 Ram 2500, Idle speed way too high
Jun 29, 2010 (9:50 pm)
I was having problems with the Transmission not staying shifted in fourth gear. Took the Truck to a Transmission Shop. They recommended changing the Throttle Position Sensor. That fixed that problem, but While I was there I cleaned the Idle air control valve. Now the Truck idles around 1600 rpm. I replaced the IACV, and it didn't help matters. This truck has a V-10. with over 200k. Everything else is great. Any help is appreciated.

I have a 03' dodge 1500 with a 4.7 pickup. I'm have idle problems at stops. Well I had a mechanic lean over to me as to whisper so his boss wouldn't hear said " it's a idle control spring that goes bad. It's a 5minute fix." He kinda pointed to the top of the engine behind the cam. It's just ashame these mechanics have to keep these simple fixes hush. I have been rolled by mechanics with every vehicle I've ever owned. I'm sick of mechanics acting like they are neurosurgeons and getting paid like it too!

My 03 ram 4.7 is doing the exact same thing. So far I have changed the MAP sensor & fuel pump. I was told by a local dyno shop to change my idle control valve. Will try that next. If you find your fix, please contact me and I will do the same for you.

Exact same thing on my 03 Ram 4.7L. New Jasper engine but the car has 120K. I have changed the fuel pump, MAP sensor, O2 sensors, I bought a new cam and crankshaft sensor but not installed yet. An owner at a local Dyno shop recommended a new idle control valve. Doesn't matter if the engine is cold or hot. 90% of the time after engine start the car will stumble approximately 20 seconds after start-up and last for 10 to 15 seconds. Just about when you want to jump out in traffic! After the engine recovers, it run fine until I shut it down for more than 20 minutes. Please rcbender, when you find out the fix, let me know! I will do the same for you!
#177 of 267 Dodge Ram 1500 - Stalling Problem Solved !
Aug 16, 2010 (3:13 pm)
Over a year has passed since I posted a message about my stalling Ram. After trying all the possible easy fixes that I could handle (like the IAC valve), I finally took it to a local mechanic. He found that the problem was a bad crankshaft position sensor. He replaced it with one from NAPA but didn't fit correctly, so he got one from Chrysler and it worked perfectly. I hope this helps you solve your truck's problem.

I have to agree with the guy who said program the ECM or PCM. Had mine hooked up the other day and it was reading that something was wrong with the computer. My truck has been stalling as I come to a stop and have even had it stall out as I'm making a turn through an intersection. When I go in reverse it spits and sputters until I take it out of gear. I have to keep my foot on the gas to keep it running. How can I reprogram the computer.

Have you already checked the vacuum lines at the evaporative canister under the passenger compartment?
