1997 Dodge Ram 360 5.9 won't idle in gear

My 97 Ram 360 will not idle in gear after the engine warms up. I have to hold 1 foot on the brake and one foot on the gas when I stop to keep the engine from shutting off. No other issues are present , runs great and idles great when cold but after 5 minutes of the engine running it will not idle in park or when in gear. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks and Happy New Year

Remove IAC motor/valve on side of throttle body that regulates idle especially under load conditions, and clean it & the port good with throttle body cleaner & re-try. If it cures it for a while, then does it again, replace it with new one.

I have a Dodge 3500 Ram with an Automatic 6 speed transmission. I pull a Gooseneck trailer with a GVW of 16k lbs. I have no issues when I am on the road, but when I leave the highway or I'm in heavy...


sounds like you may havea torque converter lockup issue, one way to check is while in slower traffic (15-35mph) gear down your transmission such that you are at a higher rpm (2000-2500) then take your foot all the way off the throttle, if it is in lockup your engine rpm will stay about the same, if not it will go to about idle.

If the tcc doesn't unlock while shifting it will shift very hard and if it slips it will make your temperature increase

1997 dodge ram v6 manual jerking while driving


This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

I have a 97 dodge ram with the 5.9 360 motor i replaced the intake gasket and now it has low oil pressure at idle when warm hooked manual gauge up and it only reads 2psi is there something i could have...


Only 2 psi may be ok when at idle, as long as it goes up to around 40 at high rpm.
But I would suggest 20W-50 for any engine with over 100k miles on it.
Otherwise i don't see what the intake manifold could have to do with oil pressure, unless you damaged the sender some how?
