The idle sensor need to be increased to allow more fuel to the motor. on our truck it was the torque converter locking up at idle causing the engine to stall. like dumping the clutch on a standard transmission it would also stall Something else is when is the last time you had serviced your Dodge? More than likely the torque converter. IF you can get the truck to move/ roll then place it in gear and it continues to move then that means your torque converter is BAD.
