1998 Dodge Ram Van 2500 Question: stalling and restarting
Im currently working on this van-it can be driven as less as two miles are as much as 40. All engine ignition parts have been replace but the problem persists.

An erratic idle, stall on hot restart and/or low speed deceleration. may be caused by a faulty idle air control motor. Our technicians tell us there is a revised IAC motor to correct this condition.
