good to hear man!!! I just replaced the O2 sensor today and it still die on me. it a little better but not totally gone. I called my buddy that works on Rams at the local dealer and he told me to clean the throttle body and IAC sensor. If that didn't do the trick I should chhck the battery.
I c your tech certified, i hope you can tell me what to do here.Sunday IChanged my fuel pump for no reason!![:@]Saturday I thought I had bought some bad gas, cuz the truck kept dying in a city 65 miles from home.I bought some Lucas injector cleaner and tried that but after fightin it for four hours it finally would not start again so my buddy brought his chevy and trailer and hauled it home.
Don't neglect your relays! I spent over $350 on my truck this past weekend only to find out that my ASD relay was the culprit. I've had more relays and fuses go bad than any other thing on my truck, mechanics say one thing then i change it out and it didn't help. Then and only then do i realize that i could have swapped out a relay and fixed the whole problem. Thanx to everyone who gave me ideas on fixing the problem. This is a great site in a time of need.

If you guys find out what is cuasing this let me know! I posted a new thread today not knowing this one existed. Mine too stalls at operating temp, when at idle, slowing down to stop, etc. The tach bounces down to 0 and tries to go back up, but that is when the engine stalls. Already changed the TPS and MAP. The truck threw a code for the MAP about 2 weeks ago so I thought that was the problem, but it seems to be getting worse.
Mine is fixed!!!!!! All I did was pull the Throttle body and IAC motor and clean them. They were pretty nasty looking. I also disconnected the battery during this time and reset the computer. Hooked everything back up and it starts up and purrs like a kitten. Even after I ran around town and warmed her up good.
