I had a problem with my Ford Ranger doing the same thing. This was due to
problems with the emissions control modules/sensors. The truck when the
problem occurred would run 1000 to 1500 rpms higher than normal. Maybe have
them check those and hopefully this will help.

This is just a guess, but maybe you need a new battery?
Lots of the Dodge guys have had similar troubles only to
discover that a battery replacement solved their problem.

Concerning the speed drop off and engine killing when stopping. This may
not apply to a diesel, but, I had sorta the same problem with a gas engine.
It was something to do with the air fuel ratio. The dealership changed a
sensor under the hood and it stopped the problem. Hope this helps.

Well Friday I was getting ready to leave work and I noticed a nice puddle
under my new 2000 PSD. I opened the hood to see that anti-freeze was
spitting out of the side of the thermostat housing and all over one of the
alum. brackets.

I got home and cleaned the mess and tightened the pipe plug on the driver's
side of the housing (it was pretty loose!!!). Problem solved...I also
noticed that the uppder idler pulley seemed to have something on it, but it
won't come off - also the belt seems to be wearing rather quickly (probably
due to the pulley unless the material on the pulley is part of the belt).
Wondering if the anti-freeze could have eaten away at the belt when it was

Interesting for a truck with under 4000 miles on it....
