Hi all,

I see there are a few posts about stalling in older years for dakota but didn't see any for 2009.
I have replaced:
2 filters in transmission
Throttle housing
Pressure sensor in transmission

Dakota stalls when stopped at a stop sign... hits 500 rpm and its fine then dips below... stutters then shuts off.
If I am in park, it idles perfectly with no issues

Transmission has been flushed and topped up.

Any ideas?

not specific to dakota.
if stalls when pressing brake, look at leaking vacuum brake booster
vacuum leaks
pull the vacuum hose off the brake booster, plug the vacuum line, drive the truck somewhere with no traffic (your neighborhood) since it will be hard to brake without the vacuum assist.
less likely since idles fine in park :clean idle air control valve so you can move the plunger in and out by hand smoothly
don't replace anything unless you diagnosis shows it's bad

I had codes for the things I was replacing so I figured replace em and see if it improves.
I will have to try some of these options and see if it helps.

Make sure your trans fluid is full and you check according to manual. If it is low the torque converter won't come out of lockup then it can't idle.

Try a new TPS. (throttle position sensor). I have replaced these on my older Dakota with the same symptoms.
