greetings,

did they look at the ASD relay? does it start back up?were there any codes? is the check engine light on?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
no codes,keeps running when cuts out,starts fine
Dodge Mechanic: ironmike, ASE Master Technician & T2 diesel replied 8 years ago

I would swap the ASD(auto shut down) relay with another relay in the PDC(fuse box) under the hood.

when they stall like turning the key off the relay is the cause many times.

let me know what you find

good luck

It ran fine for 3 days after we replaced the throttle control sensor

Dodge Mechanic: ironmike, ASE Master Technician & T2 diesel replied 8 years ago
did they clean the throttle body? does it misfire or idle up and down before the stall? did they look at the plugs?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
cleaned throttle body,missfire yes,new plugs,wires,tune-up 4 months ago
Dodge Mechanic: ironmike, ASE Master Technician & T2 diesel replied 8 years ago

did you run any cleaner through the injectors? did they replace the cap and rotor?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I will check tomorrow
Dodge Mechanic: ironmike, ASE Master Technician & T2 diesel replied 8 years ago

If wet or high humidity I have seen these caps get wet and misfire. I have seen more injector issues with the 4.0 but if the plugs look black you may need to do a cleaning service.

let me know what you find

good luck
