Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!!

Well we didn't make a 5.8 but I'm guessing you have a 5.7(HEMI) that is stalling on you at stops.. Being it's at the dealership do you know if they can duplicate the stalling issue? If so they shoud be able to find the problem..

What is the last 8 of your VIN?

When it stalls is it a low idle stall or a quick die out? Did they relearn the ETC?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It never died on them they are saying nothing is wrong. But it will not make it through bad traffic without it dying many many many times
