Re: Just shuts off?

Dealer said that the plugs or a faulty coil was likely sending an intermittent 'spike' and that was telling the PCM to activate the 'shut down' relay. Foil seems to have done the trick!

Re: Just shuts off?

My wife did the foil this morning and sent me pics (i'm out of town) and it looked like a pretty good job, stalled 15 minutes later. So my search continued and I found a referance somewhere, could have been here, that the HEMI is very particular about transmission fluid level so I had her check that and it was 1/8 to 1/4 low when hot. She added more fluid and has been driving around this evening with no more stalling. I still would like to see the pics because I will be checking the foil job she did, not because I doubt her ability but because I had to explain it to her over the phone and wasn't really sure what should be done myself. I don't have a lot of confidence that the trans fluid was low enough but hopefully that was it. Anyway I will be updating in a couple days.

Re: Just shuts off?

Well the stalling stopped until yesterday. I've been getting misfire codes, first P0305 so I swapped the #5 and #7 coil packs. Then I was getting the P0300, then last night it stalled and I got the P0305 again so now I'm thinking injector, it's gonna have to go to the dealer for that (under warranty). Anyway, just an update to the ongoing.

Re: Just shuts off?

Just an update 2500 miles now and no stalls. After several trips to the dealer and leaving with them for weeks on end they ended up swapping the coil packs on the right then the ones on the left, changed the plugs and went through a couple computers but eventually got it to where it is not stalling now, oh and the removed the foil I had put in.I believe that the new plugs and replacing a faulty coil pack is what ultimately solved the problem (for me). The computer was replaced a couple times due to the misfire sending a spike back to the computer and frying it.

Re: Just shuts off?

Matt,

How much did dealer charge you for this? I need to get mine fixed, this stalling is getting dangerously annoying.

Re: Just shuts off?

I had a similar issue with my 05 5.7 wk stalling out in traffic. Replaced all the spark plugs and wires but that didnt fix it. It turned out to be a bad O2 sensor. Replaced it and all was good.

Sorry I haven't been around much, the dealer covered it all because we just bought it and my wife and i went ballistic on the manager. He never once returned our calls, worst dealership I've ever been to.
