Engine idles fine but sputters and dies while accelerating in gear. it is a automatic and will continue to run when i downshift into lower gear. i would say it has something to do with the kickdown linkage not to sure how to adjust it

SOURCE: 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 won't idle
First thing I'd do is remove idle speed motor, or idle air control, same thing, different names. remove wire connector, remove motor, and get some throttle body spray cleaner, and spray shaft & tip of motor well & clean it all up, as well as spray in to port (hole) that it came out of. Re-install & try that. They are pretty common problem. If it cure it for a while, then starts to act up again, replace it, and clean port well before installing new one. here's a link to give you an idea of what your looking for, click on pictures to expand them.

when this occurs you need to check fuel pump presure ,see if it is below 20psi or so if it is the fuel pump is trying to go out
