******HELP- Phantom stalling issues ************
2005 Ram 1500 QC 4x4 SLT 5.7L with 160k miles
Stalls when I stop, then accelerate. RPMs will raise a few hundred then just drop to stall. All electronics will stay on; can start truck back up right away. Only way to drive is to brake with left foot while maintaining 1000 rpm on throttle, then slowly releasing brake while slowly increasing throttle. It's a PIA. When driving/WOT it does not stall, no issues.
I have spoken to a lot of buddy's that are gear heads and mechanics. Read a ton of online forum information.
Here is what I have replaced so far-
•Throttle body (drive by wire IAC/TPS internal) replaced because it was reading 18% on scanner and wouldn't go above that.
•Wire and plugs (copper)
•Rear VSS- this is only code it's thrown
•Checked wires on MAP sensor by wiggling to see if corroded as I read this on several forums but it was ok
•Checked fuel pressure on rail and it was ok 62 psi
I am running out of ideas
, it seems like this is a major dodge issue.
A few people tell me it could still be-
•PCM needs to be flashed; I know dodge released an update for this year/motor PCM. I have one dodge tech telling me it will help and another saying it won't.
•or PCM is bad and I need a new one......
• or there is a vacuum leak; if this is it- how do I check for this? Where do I look?
Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated...
