Ok guys this is like the 5th time my truck has died since I have had it. I got the truck in February, and it started to die. It usually does it from drive to reverse, but today it did it at a stoplight! I have heard of other people having this problem too. What do you guys think I should do, take it to the dealer? BTW it's an 05. Thanks, Pat.

Mine did that once at a stoplight 3 weeks ago and has not done it again. I figure if it happens again I'm going to the dealer. If mine did it 5 times I'd definitely be off to the dealership. It's dangerous if that happens at freeway speeds. By the way I got it Feb.18.

5 times are alots for a new truck, I'd take it back to dealer and have them look at it, of-course they may not be able to find out what going on unless it's happened when they test drove (how often!) but at the least, ask them check the PCM part number and see if there's any up dated part number that may have some thing related to stalling problem, there's one new tsb's concern about idle fluctuates at stop on Hemi engine, ask them due to it's an intermitten problem, just flash your PCM to the newest software number/version and see if it's helps any.

This was a past problem with some of the 03's.

I wouldn't hesitate to take it to the dealer...that just doesn't sound right.

Been there and done that and it did not work. I had them clean the throttle body and reset and adjust it. I have not had this problem in 2 weeks. I shoulda had them clean the IAT while they were at it. The only problem I am having now is the fact that the early 03 Hemi trucks idle at 500 rpms :crazy:

If it ain't supposed to happen - take it in - it's that simple.

Nope, happened once a gravel road on a sharp turn, if someone would have been coming it would have been bad news. I had just hit some pretty good mud puddles (pot holes) and I attributed it to that "I hope". Has not happened since, about 5 months ago.

I was just talking to the service manager at the local dealership about the reliability of the Hemi he said good except for some stalling issues. He wasn't specific about which years but did mumble something about a reflash fixing it.

Man, I don't know, I called the dealer awhile back and he said it could be a number of problems(idle speed, and other things I can't remember off the top of my head) I might just wait to see if it does it ONE more time. The reason I haven't taken it in is because I have heard of other people having the same problem. It had been like 2 months before it did it last, I was starting to think it went away:(.

I thought it happened to me today. I backed out of a spot and pulled the shifter down and just sat there. I couldn't hear the engine reving with the tunes thumping. And then I realized she was in N. :D Talk about a sigh of releif.
