97 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab w/n turn over

My truck w/n turn over whenever I have driven for a while, stop and turn off the engine. If I wait approx. 1 hour, it will start as if nothing happened. Someone told me that it might be the fuel pump. I was also told that if I turn the key on 3 times quickly that the check engine light would turn on and off to provide a code. I did that and the code it gives me is 355. What does that mean.

    I purchased the TPS and EGR valve as recommended by Ron and brought them home to install. When I went to remove the old parts neither matched what Autozone had sold me. When I went to return, we discovered by process of elimination w/ the TPS that the parts I need are for a 1998 Dodge! When I checked the door sticker, it said manufacture date is 7/97. The clerk at autozone said that model doesn't even have an EGR valve and he couldn't identify what component that I had brought thinking it was the EGRV. Now that we know it is probably a 98 model, is there any difference in your diagnosis?

Does a 97 dodge ram 1500 have an engine to firewall ground strap and if so can you describe the whereabouts?

My '97 with the 5.9L gas engine does not. It's grounded from the battery to the frame and a ground strap ran from a bolt under the exhaust manifold on the passenger side(near the oil filter) to the frame

Assembly of converter to trans and then tunit to engine? The torque converter must engage and slide into the front pump. The seal is easily damamaged if not properly fitted.Once the trans is against the engine the converter can be slid forward to bolt the flex plste.There should not be more than approx. 1/4 inch between the converter and trans bell housing if the converter is properly mated to the trans. Good Luck, Ned.
