2002 dodge ram 1500 4x4 with 4.7 and automatic trans.idle is all over the place stalls when you stop and the automatic transmission is just slipping in first gear.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it the original transmission?

100 000

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

It just started about 30 mins ago. I have not tried anything but wondering could it be a vacuum line ?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No that's it. no problems before last start up.

Hey how are you ,I will Try to Help you with This Issue

Yes sound like a vacuum line came off, pop the hood and look around ,listen for hiss

if you have starting fluid, wait until engine is cold ,spray while running if the rpm surges up you found the leak ?

now the transmission slipping did this also just started or separate issues prior to this

If you do not mind me asking are you looking for the most possible causes and taking it to a repair shop or you are repairing it yourself and you need step by step instructions
Please Let Me Know
Thank You
