my 95 ram 5.7 has 357,000 miles on it. it has a problem stalling occasionally when the motor is hot, not all the time. it will turn over but not fire. once it cools down all the way it will start like it was new.
it will run on either, so it has spark. i have replaced the fuel pump as well. it just won't put fuel in the cylinders.
yes, it is the original engine and trans. with 357,000 miles! the only work on the motor is 2 water pumps.
#240 of 262 idle issue at times

Yea ive got a 04 4x4 hemi and this as only happen to me twice but the first i just got fuel and went 3 three miles and went to put it in park and the rpms just dropped to about 200 to 300 so i put my foot in and held it wide open and it came out of it. The next time i did not get fuel just went to start it and it would not start. I tried twice with just the key and nothing so i held the pedal down and cranked it over and it started then smelled flooded. that was about 2 months apart maybe at the most but it has not done it since. All else its a good truck beside the rust in the wheel wells and the blue smoke on start up sometimes but it does not appear to burn oil. Any ideas on were to start or look for the idle issue.

I have the exact same vehicle with only 80,000 miles on it and it is doing the same thing. So far Chrysler has done all of the above to the tune of $800 dollars CND and they still have not fix the problem. It is going back in today (July 4, 2012). There is also and update for your engine computer that they put in and for the extra $150 dollars, this did not help either. did you eventually find what the problem?

I changed the whole fuse box mount on the left hand size under the hood and was told to not have more than one or two keys on key chain because I had a bunch of keys on my key chain. It work and hadn't had the problem since.

After and extensive search on the internet, I determined it was a "Throttle Position Sensor" or TPS. It cost $29 dollars and I installed it myself. Bingo!!!!! Problem solved. Go to utube and watch the following video.

I bought a 06 Ram quad cab Hemi 4x4 (38,000 miles) with the same problems. It would stall when coming to a stop, stopping on an uphill grade, and it would do mini neutral drops while accelerating from a stop during right turns. It also had a delayed engagement when placing my trans into drive. I had my tranny serviced at my normal shop (flush and filter change, 450 bucks). No improvement. I then changed my plugs and EGR valve, still no improvement. I took it to a transmission specialty shop and they told me that it was low almost 4 quarts. They informed me that the fluid needs to be checked in neutral, not in park like how I checked it. I know this sounds too simple but all my engine and transmission problems were solved, just like that. If you haven't already fixed your problems, I hope this helps. By the way, my mileage still sucks (about 10-11 mpg w/35"s), but I'm happy now.
