1989 Dodge Ramcharger stalls out.

It acts like we are running out of gas or it is overheating and stalling out. Yet neither of these are the cases.  Where do we start looking?

Start with the fuel system and go out from there
check fuel preacher, fuel filter, injector spray,
Then go to rotor and cap
sounds like a fuel problem

How do u get the 1990 DODGE ramcharger to stay idleing

Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

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 1989 dodge ramcharger 5.2 318 TBI it was starting up and then it would stall as we were driving then sometimes it will start and sometimes it wont i replaced ignition switch, starter relay,...

It sounds like you have an enemy that sabotaged your vehicle. The sand in the oil pan concerns me the most as major damage can be done in a short time with the engine running. The water in the gas tank is less of a worry because you can drain the tank and then add a couple bottles of Heet fuel conditioner which will cause any remaining water to mix with the fuel and burn away.

1985 Dodge Power Ram Prospector Pickup Started 2 Stall When Put In Reverse, Now It Stalls Even After Its Warmed Up

I was having the same problem with my 85 Ramcharger until my alternator went out. After I replaced it the stalling seemed to stop. Other things I noticed that resolved were dimming headlights and dash lights, the radio shutting off periodically when I drove and hard bumps causing the truck to stall. I hope this helps.
