car   Car Stall problem 1
Failure Date: 02/24/2015

Vehicle stalls under deceleration, cutting power to power brakes and steering. First two times it happened I was in traffic approaching busy intersection to a red light. Very nearly ended in crash except I got the emergency brake on. No warning or warning lights, no loss of electrical power.

car   Car Stall problem 2
Failure Date: 12/12/2014

Vehicle stalls after a gas fill-up. Dealer had filled the vehicle up and it stalled repeatedly for about 10 miles and then was fine. The next time I filled it up it stalled repeatedly again. I returned it to dealer for repair. They replaced the charcoal canisters and purge valve solenoid. After the next fill up it did not stall. However, after the second fill-up it started missing at highway speeds and then stalled on an exit/entry ramp of short curvature and had to be hurriedly restarted while turning at high speed. This is a definite safety issue and should be a recall. Social media is rampant with this issue with Dodges. Not filling the tank with gas is not a solution to this problem as some would suggest. This needs to be rectified!!!.

car   Car Stall problem 3
Failure Date: 11/22/2014

While coming to a stop, the truck lost all power and stalled. I immediately restarted the truck and proceeded to the next intersection, and it lost power and stalled again while braking to a full stop. I was able to make it two miles closer to my home, came to a stop and the engine revved up slightly, and then idled low to the point where I thought it was going to stall again. I got it home and had it towed to my mechanic. The truck was checked out, the truck did not stall after repeated testing for the next week. I picked it up, got a quarter mile down the road and it lost power and stalled again. I immediately returned it to the mechanic and, again, the truck did not duplicate the stalling, but the mechanic did see it rev up when coming to a stop. The mechanic replaced the idle positioning sensor and I picked up my truck only for it to stall on my way home. My mechanic has had my truck more than I have over the last two months and the problem remains undiagnosed. After basic research on Dodge forums, this is a problem that many other people are dealing with and nothing has been done to address this issue. This is a major safety issue considering that the truck loses power and stalls without warning in the middle of turns and coming to a stop. Please help resolve this issue before it costs someone their life. I am not the only person having this problem.

car   Car Stall problem 6
Failure Date: 09/02/2013

I have a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 crew cab 5. 7l hemi 2wd and it continues to stall every now and then at low speeds or at a complete stop. Vehicle will start right up with no problem but battery gauge takes a few seconds to rise to operating levels. Transmission also feels like it wants to slip at time of stall. Had engine and trans changed, battery and alternator checked out okay as well. Did some research and found that a lot of incidents happen after vehicle transmission ha been serviced or transmission fluid is low; other individuals who have experienced this problem have said they had the erg valve, tps sensor, map sensor and even software. I don't know what the problem is but you end up spending hundreds of dollars trying to figure this out. I don't know why Chrysler doesn't address this issue.

car   Car Stall problem 9
Failure Date: 01/01/2013

I have two issues which I believe are related. The anti rollover valve in the fuel tank is sticking preventing fuel from entering the tank properly and bubbling back up the filler tube. This happens whenever you attempt to put in fuel and has resulted in multiple fuel spills. The second issue is after a fill up the truck may stall 4-5 times while at idle at stop lights or even while rolling resulting in loss of power steering, power brakes and no advanced warning. Both issues have multiple occurrences. I repaired my fuel tank by adding an auxiliary anti-rollover valve and plumbing it into the existing evap connections. This after the dealer refused to warranty the tank even though some models have been recalled and this does have a bulletin published.

car   Car Stall problem 10
Failure Date: 10/18/2012

Began to slow down for a traffic light and my truck stalled while moving almost causing me to rear end the person ahead of me since I lost all control of my brakes and power steering. From what I'm reading this had happened to many people with the same year, make and model vehicle without any type of recall and its too dangerous of a situation.

The contact owns a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500. The contact stated that while driving 45 mph, she heard a loud thud as the vehicle stalled. The vehicle was towed to the contact¿s home where an independent mechanic inspected the vehicle.

Neither the dealer nor the manufacturer was notified. The failure and current mileage was 110,000.

Failure Date: 05/19/2012

I just bought this truck with 97,000 miles and it ran great when I took it for a test drive. Shortly after my purchase my truck suddenly stalled while I was making a slow turn leaving me without engine power, steering and brakes. The truck started right up and runs like there is nothing wrong with it. Normally I wouldn't file a complaint until I looked on the internet and saw a whole lot of people with the exact same problem that nobody seems able to fix.

Vehicle stalls after fueling. This is very random and doesn't happen every time I fuel. I have noticed it happens more when I fuel the tank to the top. The vehicle can stall during driving or at a stop that also is random.

My 2004 Dodge ram stalls. On four different occasions. The last two almost killing my girlfriend and me. After the first three, I took it to a mechanic and he replaced the cam and crank sensor. On the way home, it did it again. Three of the four times it stalled while turning left and slowing down. This puts you in front of oncoming traffic. The last time I was on alert and still nearly died. There are no lights or warnings.

Failure Date: 12/20/2008

Yesterday for no apparent reason my 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 died on a busy road with no warning. And would not restart. This truck has on several occasions when coming to a stop decided to stop running. (4-5 times in 2 years)until yesterday I would turn the switch off then restart and I would be okay until the next time the engine was checked for codes but none were found. After reading other problems on your site why has this issue not been solved? someone should be held accountable "Dodge" and the public safety should be #1 concern. . . . . . I await your response to this not so uncommon problem with shutdowns & stalling engines.
