    This scenario has happended twice now. I have a 2007 4x4 6 speed DC Sport. I pull into my parking lot at work, turn off 4wd and pull into my parking spot. Temp 20F, snow. At the end of the day, as I back up and go from reverse to 1st, the truck stalls and then won't start for another minute or so. Engine turns over. Scanguage II has no error codes. What the heck is going on?

    I'm going to say that it's something along the lines of you not giving the 4wd enough time to disengage after turning it off.

    Maybe since it's still partially in 4wd, as you let the clutch out in 1st, there's not enough torque there to push all 4 drive wheels? And that's causing a stall.

    I dunno, I'm just guessing at this point.

    First month of ownership... This month I'm removing front air dam, and also Rhino lining the bed.
    My troubleshooting manual says, and I quote...

    Warm engine, try checking the following:

    Adjust the idle settings, could be dirty fuel filter, check fuel pump output, vacuum leak, or sensor failure.

    Cold engine, try checking the following:

    Stuck choke, EGR, or vacuum leak.


    Personally I bet it's the fuel pump or dirty/clogged fuel filter. May not be creating enough pressure in the system after truck sits for long time, then after a few starts builds the needed pressure back up. Easy to check it out.

    But if it's something like that, it should be doing it every time he starts the truck in the morning.

    I'm leaning more towards something related directly to the 4wd, and or transmission. Since it only happens after a certain function.

    Hmmm. OK, good point.

    OP, are you putting the truck back into 4x4 before this happens?

    I back out in 2wd. Also, I don't let the truck warm up...just start it up and go. It sounds plausable that the 4wd may not be fully dissengaged. I wonder what distance it takes for it to dissengage? I probably drove a couple hundred feet in 2wd before pulling into my parking spot. But I do remember the previous time this happened, I turned of 4wd as I was parked and when I backed out it made a big clunk before it stalled. This time no clunk.

    OK, maybe a silly question but... Why don't you just leave your truck in 4x4? Obviously you need it up until when you park, and therefore I assume the same is true for when you get back on the road?

    I can tell you that the 4x4 engage and disengage times are really inconsistent on my truck, sometimes pops right in and out and othertimes the 4x4 light on dash blinks at me for several minutes.

    I agree about the 4wd taking some time to engage/disengage. With mine, I find that it works the fastest when I let off of the accelerator and sometimes even faster when I clutch in then release.
