I have a 01 Durango with the 4.7 engine and it just started to stall at stops. Not all the time, but enough to make it a pain. Read several posts on here and replaced the IAC and cleaned the throttle body. It worked for almost a day and then it started stalling again. It also seems to hessitate or bog when you accelerate but again not all the time. Any suggestions would be great.

Just got back in and saw your post. I'm going to check the connections and the cable. I also have another Dodge that has a good battery in it and swap it with the one in the "D" and give that a shot. If at least to confirm if the battery is OK or not. Just for the heck of it would the TPS have anything to do with it?
All right, did all the things I talked about and nothing has changed. Tried different battery-still stalled sporadically. Tried new TPS and it seemed to make it worse. Put the old one back in. It only does it when its in gear and not all the time. If I pull up to a stop and kick it into neutral it doesn't shut off, which is really not what I want to do all the time. I really think as with most things it is simple. The difficulty is in finding it. By the way, thanks for all your help. Was going to clean the throttle body again just in case I missed something.
I don't think that would be enough to reset it. I'm not positive on this but I think you have to leave the battery disconnected for a few minutes and then hold the key in the start position for 30 seconds or so. The correct procedure should be in the diy section.

I went back and put the new TPS on and did the batterty thing again. It worked fine for a little drive but then shut off at a stop. It has done that every so often for the last day or so. I was wondering about the MAP sensor. I think I might try that in the next day or two. There is one other thing that seems to be hit and miss. Its when you accelerate after making a turn the truck stumbles. You can feel the trans like it is stuck between gears. At least that is what it feels like. I've also heard a low groan at that time. Maybe they are related or not, but just seems to be convient to have this happening also. Going to have a friend that has a scanner run a check on the TCM and the PCM to see what other things might be going on.
