41 problems associated with car stall have been reported for the 2004 Dodge Ram 1500.
Car Stall problem #1
The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 1D7HA18D74_. 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. This issue happened on 09/02/13.
Car Stall problem #2
The car is a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500. VIN of the vehicle was 1D7HA16D14_. After filling gas tank full, engine dies when braking and turning a corner (losing steering) and coming to a stop. Starts back up fine, but stalls again on next low speed braking or turning a corner. Very similar to other accounts that I have read. I've had new plugs and O2 sensors costing mucho for zero result. When this occurs slowing down to make a slow turn, I have to throw it up to neutral to restart. Once I threw it in park going slowly, but it was dangerous to screech to a halt with a car behind me almost rear ended me. I've been told the same crap by dealers about this and I know they are playing dumb. The only remedy that I use for this is similar to others which is just don't fill it all the way up unless you are getting right out on the highway to run those speeds and not be stopping. I can't let others drive my truck unless I make sure that the tank is below three quarters of a tank. I can't believe that there's not a quick and dirty fix for this. Seems like you should disable emissions devices in the interest of safety. This car stall problem happened on Thursday, September 13, 2007.
Car Stall problem #3
The car was a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500. 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. This issue happened on 01/01/13.

Car Stall problem #15
The vehicle involved was a 2004 Dodge 1500. This happen to me three times the first time December 2003 two months after I got the vehicle. The second time it happened June 2004, and the third time it happened September 2004. The first time it happened. I was driving down the highway in 4 wheel drive high about 30 to 35 mph when the truck stalled. I had no indication that it stalled except for loss of power steering. The second time this happened I was driving down a gravel road about 35 to 40mph. I was coming up on a curve in the road, and the vehicle stalled again. Again I lost power steering, and came close to going into the ditch with my 1 year old boy. The third time this happened I was stopped at a stop light when the vehicle stalled. I have taken the vehicle in twice for this, and the dealership said the computer in the engine probrably just reset itself, and there is nothing they can do about it. I have written a letter to Dodge, and sent it in with their survey after the last incident, and haven't heard back. The failure date was Monday, December 8, 2003.
Car Stall problem #16
My 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 with 5. 7 hemi motor stalls when approahing a stop. Does not happen every time, but fairly regular. It always comes as a suprise, rpms drop to @ 400, engine vibrates and stops. It always starts right up. It does it when hot or cold, but more when cold. Many times the rpms just drop, engine vibrates a little and stays running. Dealer had truck 3 times, first two they found no problem, even that I video taped the conditions while driving, 3rd time they admit there is a problem, but do not know how to fix it. Today, it is in the dealership for the 4th time for the same thing. I explained it might have to do with the transmission not down shifting right on stopping, as shortly after I had a transmission sending unit replaced, right after purchase, it started acting this way. This problem occurred on September 15, 2004.

Car Stall problem #22
The vehicle is a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500. I was approaching a road that I was going to make a right turn on, after traveling on a highway at approximately 60 mph. When I had slowed enough to start to make my turn, the truck stalled without warning and I had to complete the turn without power steering to avoid hitting a car waiting to turn at the light. I am a fairly big guy and made the turn without incident but had to really pull on the steering wheel to turn it. If my wife had been driving she would not have been able to make the turn. This happened when the truck had approximately 500 to 1000 miles on it. It never stalled again since then. The truck now has 12000 miles on it.
