Stalling or Low Engine Idle Speed Due to Dirty Throttle Body on Chrysler Town & Country

A dirty throttle body may cause low engine idle speed or frequent stalling, as oily residue blocks air flow in the throttle when the throttle is closed. Throttle body cleaning may be necessary to correct this condition. Our technicians caution against spraying cleaner directly onto the throttle body as this may damage the throttle position sensor (TPS).

Engine stalls while in drive mode, between the speeds of 20-40 mph. I brought this bck to the dealer and they dismissed the issue because they could not replicate it. There was no engine code either. Who do I complain to next?
