Dies when idles down

Asked by Jul 01, 2018 at 01:15 PM about the 2001 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We recently traded off our old truck for a 2001 Dodge ram 1500 5.9 L and now
we are getting nothing but trouble out of it. it drives perfect on highway but dies
when it gets to a low idle. it threw codes for o2 sensors that we replaced along
with the catalytic converter and exhaust but it still dies when we come to a stop
in our driveway. can anyone helps us tell what it is???

Damn whats ur phone number lol jk id start by cleaning up the throttle body and checking the idle control valve/passages... if this engine has a mass air flow sensor its possible you could have a vacuum leak
