Customer Question

I have a 2012 1500 hemi, and every once in awhile it stalls at stop light. It started this after I had transmission oil changed not sure if that has any thing to do with it or not

Often this is due to build up on the throttle plate or bore. Your fly-by-wire system is constantly moving the throttle plate to maintain a smooth idle. If it gets some varnish or carbon build up in there, the plate will stick and cause the engine to stall. If you do your own work you can clean it with some induction cleaner and soft rag.
