Default Engine just stops running

I have a 2001 Dodge Van with a 5.2 engine. The engine, when idling, just stops, but will restart every time. While driving, the engine stumbles with the "check engine light' momentarily flashing.

I have replaced the crank sensor, camshaft sensor in the distributor, ASD relay. coil, relay inside vehicle fuse panel which "clicks" when engine stumbles. The ASD relay also clicks twice during a stumble. The PCM has been replaced and rechecked. Throttle sensor also replaced.

It is like some sensor such as the temperature or oil that momentarily sends a false signal to the PCM computer which turns the ASD off and then on. I am at a complete loss as to what to do. Can anyone help, please?

Hey I have an 02 mine did the same thing and it was idling low. Try changing your idle air control valve. After I changed mine I haven't had a problem with it since.
