2001 dodge caravan stalls when braking or turning Sign In

My 2001 caravan with a 2.4 motor just started stalling when braking for a light or turning to the left while making a light. It doesn't start back up for right away, but does start. It seems like if I wait a few seconds it will start, usually my third time trying. I started doing it twice one day to using Neutral today to get home from work. It seemed like it still wanted to stall even in neutral. I had to feather the gas and then it would run alright until the light changed. I replaced the fuel pump a year ago. I almost forgot, ther is no engine light on and it has the onboard diagnostics.

It probably wouldn't hurt to hook up a fuel pressure gauge and hang it out the hood, so you can see it. Then drive the vehicle and see what the pressure does when the problem occurs.

Be sure that your gauge hose doesn't get caught up in anything or your connection isn't leaking. It would be a good idea to take a fire extinguisher with you when you go to drive it with the gauge connected. Just in case.

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.
