    I have a 2011 1500 5.7 124000 km with a CAI and CAT back. I have been experiencing a sputtering and stalling when coming to a stop. The stalling happens when the truck has been left in the cold over night (-20C).
    This happens even if the truck was plugged in and warmed up for 10 -15 min, and persists until the the drive train warmed up (engine 90C, Oil 80C, Trans 30C+).
    Shifting to neutral, no stalling, or lifting on the brake slightly keeps from staling too.
    I have cleaned the throttle body, trans fluid in full. Plugs were changed at 100,000km

    If the truck was in a heated garage (work) i have no issues at all no matter the temps.

    After looking into this i am suspecting the lock up on the torque converter. Can this be tested?

    No codes. Added the Gas Line antifreeze last night, have to wait for the results.
    There does not seem to be any issues if I coast to a stop (no brake).
    Tried driving with tow/haul on, made no difference.
    Starts fine and idles good.

    Checked for vacuum leaks and did not find/detect any.

    I had no issues today on my commute to work at -22C . After adding the Gas Line antifreeze. Fingers crossed that it was that easy.

    This maybe a dumb suggestion but have you looked at your maf sensor and throttle body? If there is a lot of oil on the maf and a good coating on the throttle body it could cause stalling. Maybe dumb but it’s a quick and easy check.

    Never mind didn’t see it only happens at cold temps. :) This is what happend when you skim a post instead of reading it.
