Q: Why would my car be stalling when I hit the gas? on 1999 Dodge Durango

I have a 1999 Dodge Durango and for the past month at least once a week my car will stall when i hit the gas after being at a stop. It doesn't do it all the time and when it does it usually takes about 5-8 turns before I can get it to restart and stay started once I go to hit the gas. Right now it's in the winter so I don't know if that could have something to do with it. It only does it on my way home from work too, so I don't know if I need to let it warm up longer? Any suggestions or ideas as to what can be wrong would be greatly appreciated.

im not gonna tell you that i have the cure all but i will tell you that i experienced this same reaction from my durango this winter. i started using an octane booster with a fuel injector cleaner at every fill up over four or five fill ups and it seemed to solve this issue for me. another concern of mine might be either starter or fuel pump related. have it diagnosed at any auto zone store and see what kind of codes they find for your specific durango. i would really like to stay informed on this matter.
