Question about 1999 Dodge Ram
The truck stalls right on start up unless I press the gas and keep the rpm's up. After shifting into gear with sufficient rpm's the truck will go and I can drive. The problem goes away after driving for a while but as soon as I shut down the engine, the problem returns.
Check and clean idle air control valve
check for vacuum leaks
suspect idle air control valve

I took my 1999 Dodge RAM 1500 Club Cab in for service for a
similar issue. It would run okay for 3-5 minutes, then stall unless I revved
the engine to keep the idle higher. The second it idled lower it stalled. I
thought it might be my alternator.
Anyway, my mechanic found that the mass airflow sensor was blocked, not allowing enough air to flow. They also found that the throttle body was gummed up. They cleaned both and it runs fine now

I had the same problem. The throttle body was gunkey. I took it to the shop and had a injector cleaning service where they cleaned the throttle body too. Runs like a champ now. 1998 Dodge Ram

Keemo68, why would you go after a TPS? A quick voltage sweap test with a DVOM would prove the tps is bad or not without requiring any money. How often do you see a tps be a few tenths off of a volt (not to common) vs IAC having high counts indicating vacume leak or incorrect air flow metering. Just some food for thought.

Throttle body positioning sensor needs to be changed it runs about 50 dollars and requires 2 screws to be removed

USE A SCAN TOOL THAT ALLOWS YOU TO RESET ADAPTIVE MEMORY,THIS WILL RESET THE IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE AS WELL AS FUEL/AIR RATIO AND CLEAR THE CODES. IF PROBLEM PERSISTS DO A SCAN FOR ANY NEW CODES

Well there is a couple problems that this could be but more than likely either your mafs or your tps is bad it sounds like its the tps hopefully it is its about two hundred dollars cheaper. they are both located on the throttle body and are easy to locate and change two screws each

I'm trying to replace a ignition rotorng its on my 2002 dodge ram 2500 van. i thought it should just come right off but its not. I replaced the distributer cap already. the van does not want to start on cool damp mornings and run rough when it rains. Am i correct in believing thats its in the ignition system?
