2013 ram 1 week old, stalling 10x a day w/CEL on
 
hey everyone, new to dodge and this forum....


just got my new ram sport with 15km on the odo stalled 10 times leaving the dealer had it towed in on the 3rd day been in the shop twice for a total of 4 days in the first 7 days of the trucks life. now 10 days old and stalls a dozen times a day only when truck is at stop light with brake on. CEL on P0870 code - first time in shop replace tranny pressure sensor an replace start/stop switch with no change still stalling - second time in shop clear CEL still stalling.

Did they fill it with diesel for your first tank? That will make it stall.

Hydraulic pressure plate
 
That diagnostic code, after a quick check, is a transmission malfunction code.

If there is fuel, air and spark and the engine is continuously stalling, then the transmission may have mechanical problem.

Discuss this with the service manager. Have you taken the service manager or service writer for a ride to duplicate the problem?

@ valleyracer;
p0870 - OD pressure sensor replaced,
stalled 30min after installed stalling continues....

i havent taken anyone for a ride but they had the truck for 3 days and gave it back saying "its all fixed"

also when CEL comes on a day or two later and when it does "eco" mode disables and theres a hard shift into the gear after first ...... i say this because after first gear it dosent shift again till after 120kmph .... so it must go into like fifth or something???

question---- could p0870 tranny code or any tranny code cause the engine to stall?
i was thinking maybe (airflow sensor, idle control, TPS) it just cuts out at traffic lights???

thanks

if the torque converter locks up at idle, you will stall......happened on my diesel....

how often was it stalling for you?
would there be a trouble code when the torque converter locks up causing a stall?

the only codes that are coming up for me is p0870, OD pressure sensor

I would've had it by now if I were you and demanded that they give me another vehicle...............

PaulMys 08-22-2013 08:36 PM

Jim, is there possibly another dealer you could take the truck to?
