Truck Stalling At Low Idle


Asked by Sep 20, 2016 at 11:18 AM about the 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr Laramie SLT Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 3.9L V6 2WD, and when I'm
coming to a stop or stopped and the truck is at a low idle, it
stalls out. I still have power in the cab. When I try to start it
after it stalls, it's like it got flooded, because when it finally
starts, after 1-3 tries, I can smell gas coming out of the
exhaust. I have replaced the ignition coil, the Idle Air
Control Valve (?), and the fuel pump. When I turn the key, I
can hear the pump. I've also put in the SeaFoam fuel
additive. After I replaced the pump, it ran good for about a
total of 4 hours running time, which in that time, I started
and turned off the truck multiple times. I woke up this
morning, and its doing it again. PLEASE help. I'm getting
SUPER frustrated.
