    I have a 2004 Ram 1500 that has recently begun to stall with no engine lights coming on. It usually starts right back up and will act like nothing happened. It does not happen when the engine is cold. I have 92k miles on it.
    Doing some research I found that this exact problem is happening a lot and Dodge will not admit to the problem. Mechanics are not able to duplicate it from what I have read or come up with a clear cut solution.

    Just wondering if anyone else has this problem?

    I had a issue similar to this in a 97 Dodge Dakota and it was the 02 sensors. It was reading too much fuel and turning the fuel pump off.

    Wouldn't the check engine light be on if it was a o2 sensor?

    Had a 3.7 Dakota that did the same thing. It had about 500 miles on it when it started doing it. I would be sitting there idling and it would almost go completely dead, then perk back up and idle great. It was real sporatic how it done it, it might do it every day for a week, then not do it for three months. It always came back, never a check engine light, and I just lived with it for a couple of years until I traded it off.

    just a suggestion but I had a similar problem with the stalling out particularly in in-climate weather and it was the catalytic converter...no check engine light was on at the time

    Just changed the o2 on my buddies 03 hemi with no check engine light, his was stalling and just running weak. Catalytic converter could be a canidate as well.

    My 04 Dodge ram started stumbling a bit from time to time. After I sold the truck, the cel came on... with a code for cylinder 6 misfire. Turned out to be a bad plug. Change your spark plugs
