Hoping some of you mechanically minded E owners might be able to help with my other vehicle - a 95 Dodge Ram 1500 Pick-up. It's primarily farm use so it doesn't get a lot of driving. Lately, it starts fine and I can drive it a mile or two and then if I apply break pressure going into a corner or something at low speed- it just cuts off! I can get it started again by applying some gas as I turn the key and throwing it into drive quickly. Sometimes it's stalls again a few minutes later. Here's a clue though, if I can get it on the highway and really get the engine heated up it doesn't do it anymore. Only happens at a low idle. And as mentioned, it starts up absolutely fine and sounds normal. Could this be moisture/water in the gas tank? I'm in the pacific northwest. Any ideas to save me having to take it in would be appreciated.

I started with the bottle of fuel injector cleaner. There is a lot of stuff that could clog things up around here... hay clippings, dust etc... I might need to ask more about the throttle body and idle bypass, but will try the additives first. Thanks both for the suggestions.
