Question about Dodge Ram 2500
Okay I've owned this truck since it was new and know about the battery causing this problem it has a new battery. Took it to the dealer they said throttle body so cleaned and a new kit in it didn't get home same thing dies will start but must keep rpm above 2000. So back I go they say torque converter staying engaged I get a second opinion they say transmission all righty then I had it rebuilt in 2010, but I take it to another shop he tears down the transmission and says no way the transmission is bad. He thinks it is the crank sensor, but from what I've read if that is bad it wouldn't start. C'mon somebody must have a cure I'm out thousands of dollars still the same problem.

When you cleaned the throttle body, did you remove the Idle Air Control valve/motor (IAC)? A dirty or defective IAC can be the result of your problems. The IOAC regulates your vehicles idling under various condictions. Try cleaning it first then replace if needed.
Please remeber to rate this solution. Thanks!

this sounds like a fuel issue, sometimes can be difficult to diagnose because its obviously being intermittant. whether its a fuel pressure regulator or the pump itself, i feel the most likely cause is the pump itself losing prime and thats why you have to try 2 times or more to crank because you are creating pressure from the fuel tank everytime you try to crank, this would also be a possibility as to the shut off if its getting hot than shutting down and than your able to start it back up. i would put a fuel pressure gauge on the vehicle and watch my fuel pressure readings to make sure they are staying true. if the fuel pump checks out than it will be an ignition or computer issue, i hope this helps

could be fuel elated, there are two fuel pumps, the high pressure pump to feed the injector system and the lift pump to get fuel from tank to the high pressure pump. Check fuel filter also and start there. The fuel pumps are expensive. What have you checked so far and eliminated?
