Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.I would start first with giving the throttle body and the IAC (idle air control valve with some carb cleaner. Before you start the cleaning, remove the negative battery cable so the computer will reset . Give this a try and post back with the results and we can work from there if need be.
Its not likely going to do any good to repeat the process if its still having the problem, you may have a bad IAC but before you consider replacing it I would have the computer scanned and see if there are any fault codes setting, most auto parts store will do this for you at no charge.
Okay , can you keep it running if you give it some gas when it wants to stall?
You may be dealing with a bad IAC (idle air control) valve if cleaning it did not work. I have enclosed the test steps in the link below. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view it.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/IAC%20Oct%2021.pdf
Has the computer system been scanned and if so are you getting any fault codes?
If you suspect the converter is clogged, try loosening exhaust up at the exhaust pipes where the connect to the manifolds till you have a healthy leak and drive it. If there restricted, the problem should clear. In most cases if they are plugged you will notice a major lack of power.
If it still dying on you after cleaning the TB then the next step would require hooking up a scan tool that can read the data stream and monitoring the system to see what signal is dropping out when the engine stalls. As I mentioned eariler, you may have a failing IAC but watching the data stream would show that if that was in fact the case.
