09 Hemi stalling at low speeds

I'm having a strange intermittent issue where my 2009 Grand Cherokee Limited w/ the 5.7 stalls at low speeds. It only happens in very specific situations, and not all the time.

It only stalls on me when I enter a parking garage and go over a speed bump at low speeds. As soon as I crest the bump, it completely dies and I have to shift into neutral or park depending on my speed and start it again. When I start it, it has a really weak start as it sputters back to life.

This happens like once every few weeks..I drive through parking garages with speed bumps multiple times daily, but this only happens every now and then. Thought it originally could be due to my tune I was running, but it is currently detuned and it is still happening.

This could be a multitude of things, but of course the dealer can't find anything during a diagnostic.

Has anyone had this issue?

When is the last time you cleaned out the throttle body? I had the same problem that you describe and it went away after a cleaning. Do it right by removing it and cleaning before and after the blade. If you use TB cleaner, hold the TB so the electronics are at the 12:00 position and don't spray the shaft where it exists to TB to the motor The TB electronics do not like cleaner on the board.

Have you done a tune up on it?? Putting the wrong plugs in WILL MAKE it stall.
