    iv got a 04 ram 1500 5.7 that stalls after new gas is put in... done dry gas, ran a tank of premium.. not sure what it is. it stalls (unless i keep the rpm's up) once in the first few min after. it only does it once. it runs perfect after.. :rolleyes: any ideas??

    Hmm no personal experience, but might be fuel filter? That's where I would start. Weird.

    ive got two 05 dodge minivans that do exactly the same thing,after running low and topping right off,they either stall at the pump or go about 1/2 mi and stumble then clear up.no check engine light,no stored codes. i havent gotten around to diaging them yet but when i do i suspect an evap problem probably a purge valve or canister issue,mabe something with the leak detection pump system.when i find the answer ill let you know.my wifes caravan has beed doing it for a year and mine just started a month ago.

    If you fill it up with the truck running does it stall ?

    Fill up the truck and run the tank to low... Shut the truck off and R & R the fuel cap. Then try to restart the engine. If it stalls then it is a venting issue... Try first replacing the gas cap.

    That would be my first guess too - a new gas cap. I just replaced mine on my '04 2500 with a Hemi and it cost me $17.00 at the dealership. I have to recommend that you only use a replacement gas cap from the dealership as I have known more than a few that have continued to have issues until they replaced their cap with one from the dealership.

    its not the gas cap,it stalls while filling,gas cap off.im pretty sure it has something to do with gas bleeding through the nvld valve -the valve used to pull a vac on the tank and check evap leaks.this system is common and unique to mopars.i suspect when the fuel is overfilled up to the filler neck, the port in the tank that leads to the nvld pump takes a slug of gas and introduces it to the intake.when i get some time ill check it out and report.
