My 2011 Ram 1500 Hemi randomly stalls while coming to a stop, and/or while in a slow turn.

My 2011 Ram 1500 Hemi 4×4 randomly stalls while coming to a stop, and/or while in a slow turn. I am unable to predict when this will happen.
I don't think this is a faulty fuel relay issue. I've already replaced the TIPM (due to this and other TIPM issues) and when the stalling continued, I 'jumped' the fuel relay fuse so it was not dependent on the TIPM; the problem persisted regardless.
The 'check engine' light does not come on before, during or after this happens.
Any help is appreciated.

My car has 140000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi There,
It sounds like you may have a dirty or failing idle air control valve causing your engine idle to fluctuate. The idle air control valve is a small valve on the engine’s intake system that reads the air intake as it comes into the motor. This is controlled by the car’s ECM which uses this information to make adjustments to the air/fuel ratio depending on various inputs such as outside air temperature, intake air temperature, load and various other things. As you accelerate, your car’s engine is receiving a much higher dose of fuel than when at idle and conversely, when you let off the gas pedal, there is a sudden change in this fuel supply as a result of your foot letting off the pedal. When this happens, the job of the idle air control valve is to bring this deceleration down to a slow and smooth idle rather than suddenly cutting off the fuel supply causing the motor to die. When the idle air control valve is not working properly, this cause a disruption in this process resulting in the engine not being able to idle properly. I would recommend having a professional come to your location to diagnose and inspect your vehicle.

How to Identify and Fix Common car Problems ?

The most common reasons a Ram 1500 engine stalling are the fuel system, the air intake system, or the ignition system.
If the 5.7-liter Hemi eTorque in your 2021 Ram 1500 is randomly stalling, you`re not alone. Ram is recalling 131,700 of these trucks because the powertrain control module could cause a situation where there`s an incorrect fuel mixture.
Typically when an engine shuts off while under acceleration, it is caused by an instant reduction in fuel flow or an ignition system component that failed. Among the leading candidates include, fuel pump failure, fuel pump relay, or crankshaft or cam position sensor failure.
There are three major causes for a stalled engine: A lack of fuel, a lack of air flow and improper ignition. Running out of fuel is one of the most common causes of engine stalling, but dirty fuel injectors or a plugged fuel filter can also be the culprit. Your engine needs air to run properly as well.
If the engine starts right back up after stalling, the likely cause is low fuel volume delivery because of a weak pump. If the engine is running normally one minute, but suddenly quits, loss of ignition may be the problem. This can be caused by anything that disrupts the ignition system.
Common causes of intermittent stalling may include a bad idle speed control (ISC) system, low fuel pressure, loss of ignition, vacuum or EGR leaks, or other problems we`ll get to later in this article.
Low fuel pressure, dirty or defective fuel injectors, or broken fuel pump: The fuel pump is responsible for transferring fuel from the tank to the engine.
When your engine shuts off when you slow the car down its often as a result of a: Malfunctioning transmission. Low fuel pressure, dirty or defective fuel injectors, or broken fuel pump. Bad oxygen sensor or mass flow sensor.
If the vehicle randomly shuts off while driving or stationary, there is usually an issue with the engine. Typical patterns here are issues with the ignition system, mixture preparation or fuel. A known error here is that the vehicle was refueled with the wrong type of fuel.
Your car may have a dirty or failing idle air control valve. The idle air control valve reads the air intake as it is mixed with fuel prior to being injected into the engine at low speeds and at idle.
Severe oxygen sensor problems might make your engine stall completely. The problem with this sign of engine trouble is that it can be attributed to the O2 sensor and many other things, such as clogged fuel injectors, bad spark plugs, or an electrical problem. It`s best to have the issue check right away.
The most common and obvious reason your car may start then die is the fuel shortage in your engine. This happens because there`s not enough fuel in the fuel rail, and there`s no fuel pressure to keep the engine alive.
Immediately turn on the vehicle`s hazard warning lights. They`re the universal sign of distress. If you`re unable to pull completely over onto the shoulder, or if the car is stalled in a traffic lane, do not attempt to get out of the car! Similarly, never try to cross a highway on foot.
Fuel Injectors

The fuel injectors deliver the fuel to the combustion chamber where it can be set on fire. The most common problem with fuel injectors is they get clogged by carbon deposits. If your fuel injectors are clogged, your engine is not getting enough gasoline, and it will sputter and threaten to stall.

A failing camshaft position sensor begins losing its ability to quickly transfer data. Mismatched fuel delivery and ignition timing, even if off by a few milliseconds, will cause your vehicle to sputter, accelerate poorly, lack power, stall or even shut off.
It could be a dead alternator, a bad coolant sensor or lack of fuel, just to name a few. Is your car stalling while accelerating? If so, then it could be a major vacuum leak, clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump. If your vehicle is stalling when driving, seek professional help to track down and fix the issue.
If the pump cannot produce a constant stream of gas at higher speeds, your vehicle`s engine will sputter and threaten to stall.
Low or high fuel pressure from a dirty fuel filter, defective fuel pump, clogged fuel tank strainer, bad fuel regulator or dirty/clogged fuel injectors can cause rough idling. Try replacing the fuel filter and add fuel injector cleaning treatment to your fuel tank to clean and hopefully unclog your injectors.
Fuses – If the car dies while idling but restarts, there`s a possibility that there might be an issue with the fuses of the car. It`s conceivable that one of the fuses has blown. Take each fuse from the box and hold it up to the light.
You may have a dirty or failing idle air control valve. The idle air control valve reads the air intake as it is mixed with fuel prior to being injected into the engine at low speeds and at idle.
Limp home mode limits the transmission to only second gear, which keeps your vehicle safer, while also giving you enough power to get to a dealer. If you know that the transmission issue was temporary, then you can reset the limp home mode by following these steps.
The Dodge Ram`s anti-theft system, or Sentry Key Immobilizer System, monitors your truck`s doors for unauthorized entry, and your truck`s ignition switch for unauthorized attempts at operation. As a passive anti-theft system, the Sentry system is automatically armed on your truck—you don`t have to turn it on.
You can test the O2 sensor on a vehicle by first identifying the signal wire on the sensor. Secondly, by using a voltmeter with the scale set to 1 volt, the voltage will fluctuate between 200 and 800 millivolts or . 2 to . 8 volts on your meter.

What would cause my 2008 Dodge Carvan to shut off when coming to a stop?
ANSWER : Hello. It sounds like you have an issue with the vehicles idle control system. When coming to a stop or when parking the vehicles computer must adjust the idle in order to keep the engine from stalling from the lack of air. Most of the time this is as easy as cleaning out the throttle body. In some other cases it may be caused by a faulty idle control system or even an issue with the vehicles variable valve timing system. I usually clean the throttle first to see if it takes care of it.

Car turns off. First it would turn off in reverse and when I would stop at a red light or slow down to make a turn.
ANSWER : Hi there. For the reverse stalling condition, check the Idle Air Control Valve and see if its plugged up. If a IAC valve is plugged up, an engine will stall out when going into gear and could cause issues when slowing down. For the steering and stalling issue, check the power steering fluid and see if its low. If the fluid is full, then the pressure control valve in the power steering is not releasing causing the pump to load up making the engine stall. Try turning the vehicle with the engine running and at a stopped location.

If the engine stalls out, then its the pressure control valve, but if it does not stall out, then there could be an issue with the transmission.

When accelerating after a complete stop, turning corners, coming to a complete stop or randomly when Parked a very odd vibrating
ANSWER : Hello, thank you for writing in. The vehicle may be suffering from several different issues. In this type of situation you want to start with the least complicated option, and work your way up. Start by making sure your tires are properly inflated, and have them balanced. Your brakes may be playing a role, and you will want to start by cleaning them off with some brake cleaner, and make sure nothing is stuck between the pad and the rotor. You can then raise the vehicle and manipulate the wheel looking for excess play, damaged axles and joints, and damaged wheel bearings. From there you may need to look into the wheel assembly itself and make sure there is nothing mechanically wrong, dirty, or damaged. For more help diagnosing or resolving the vibration issue, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.

Have a 03 Dodge Ram 1500 slt and turned off engine but belts still ran, disconnected battery noticed melted wire on starter
ANSWER : It sounds like your starter wire has a short to power. This would cause the starter to be engaging at all times and would explain why the belt was still spinning. I would recommend tracing the battery wire from the positive side of the battery down to the starter to check for any obvious visual damages. It is possible that an electrical surge occured and caused wires to melt together. If this is the case, replacement of the wires may be necessary. The starter should be ok unless the engine was restarted multiple times under this condition. If this has happened, the starter gear may have been damaged. Once the source of the problem is found, I would recommend resolving this issue immediately to avoid a potential fire.

I have 97 nissan altima, It stalls when I stop at stop lights and idle, the RPM vibrates and falls down and the lights come on, it
ANSWER : Hi there. Usually when you have a problem like this, it is caused by fuel system components that are clogged with excessive carbon build-up or deposits. This creates a restriction in the efficient flow of fuel and can cause the vehicle to stall. It’s also possible that emissions system components like EGR valve, mass air flow sensors or O2 sensors are faulty. I would recommend having a professional mechanic come to your location and complete a car starts the dies inspection, so they can pinpoint the source of your issues and recommend the right repairs.

My car idles kinda rough, and it stalls when I come to complete stop and stalls when I let it run.
ANSWER : Failures in the charging circuit (alternator, etc.) do not typically cause a rough idle. A faulty throttle position sensor and/or clogged fuel injectors can cause the engine to run roughly but those are just two among many, many potential causes of a rough running engine. What will help you is a rough idle diagnostic during which the individual cylinder firing patterns can be evaluated on a scope. Those firing patterns will allow the mechanic to see if perhaps there is "a" or a couple bad cylinders and also whether the engine is experiencing a fuel system versus ignition system problem and in which cylinders. On an engine with so many miles, 240,000 in your case, compression should be tested in each cylinder as wear in the engine could potentially cause enough imbalance, from cylinder to cylinder, to cause the engine to run roughly. You have to keep in mind that typically there will be multiple issues with an old engine, for example you could have dirty fuel injectors, a sticky EGR valve and fouled plugs due to the inevitable leakage from old valve stem oil seals, or any of a number of other combinations. The best thing to do, to see if you can get additional service life out of the engine, and you likely can, is to methodically and carefully go through the list of possibilities. YourMechanic certified technicians specialize in just that so if you set up a diagnostic, a technician will get to the bottom of this for you and give you repair options so that the engine can be restored to reasonable operating condition.

2003 Mercury sable started stalling when slowing down to stop and or once stopped. Made it home but now in driveway, dies as soon
ANSWER : You’ll have to go through a stalling diagnostic but the good news is the symptoms you are describing are fairly dramatic and so the cause is likely to be readily found. Common causes of engine stalling include a faulty mass airflow sensor, faulty engine coolant temperature switch/sensor (typically at cold start only), worn spark plugs, wires or defective ignition coil(s), inadequate fuel delivery or pressure (clogged fuel filter, injectors), contaminated or old gasoline, defective throttle position sensor, faulty idle air control valve, leaks in the EGR system, intake vacuum leaks, and so forth. If you request an engine stalling/rough idle diagnostic the responding certified mechanic will get this resolved for you promptly.
