I have a 98 Dodge Ram 5.2L and it doesnt idle very well when pulling up to stop signs, if I just pull up and take my foot off the gas it will die 50percent of the time, is this a governor problem and if so how do I fix it

It might be that the idle needs adjusted up a little
not sure thats it because it idles fine most of the time but just some days it just does it when i'm driving it and come to a stop not when i just go out to start it in the morning it will sit there and idle fine lol not really sure I know an O2 sensor is out on it so i'm gunna start there but thanks for the info
It might be the timing is off or that there is not enough volts going to your injection pump I had the same thing happen to my 98 and it runs great after I fixed those things
I had the same problem on my 1997 Dodge Ram Van. I replaced almost everything on the engine and it still stalled when coming to a stop. Believe it or not, I had the battery checked and found out it was only putting out 50% of the voltage (amps) it was suppose to, so I had it replaced and the van never stalled again. It seems that the PCM computer needs a certain amount of voltage to work properly, if not, then it screws up your idle. Your idle has NO adjustment, it CANNOT be turned up, at least not on my 1997 318.
