Clean the intake with a good quality intake cleaner. A carb cleaner that will not hurt plastic parts.After that let it cool, take some of the carb spray and clean the o2 sensors ,let dry,wipe the o2 sensors down with a clean cloth.replace them in there sockets.Remove one battery post for about 15 minutes.It should run better.The o2 cleaning should last only temperarely and the o2s will eventually have to be changed.you may want to check to see if you have a fuel filter and change it as well

    thank u my friend sorry i didnt get back to you for helping me. I do believe its an o2 sensor they told me its bank 1 left one upstream on the catalytic converter. I checked it and it looked burned out on one side and idj if that was what it caused it to idle very badly while i had it on drive.

SOURCE: 1997 DODGE RAM 1500 360 VERY LOW IDLE

I think you have ruled out the engine with all the parts you have replace. The transmission torque convertor is in lock up mode all the time. The engine is having to hard of a time to stay at the normal idle. The over drive clutches and soleniod are most likely damaged in the transmission.
I think you should take the vehicle to a trasnmission shop , The can check the torque convetror soleniods and pressure control soleniod.

The oil light coming on bothers me. I know you have the rebuilt engine in the vehicle but I think the oil pump in the engine is starting to go out or could be weak. The lower bearings connected to the crank shaft might be starting to leak. Have the oil pressure checked .

SOURCE: IDLE PROBLEM

Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: 2001 LINCOLN LS V6 - ROUGH IDLE / SOMETIMES STALLING.

Very common problem is about a dime size hole wearing in the rubber elbow on the PCV valve located on the driver side rear of the intake manifold.

I have a 1998 dodge ram 1500 5.9 4x4 will a torque convertor from a 1996 work in my 98


Depends on the engine - transmission combo. The tranny has a housing the torque convertor sits in and is mounted to the engine.

do you have an st, ws, Laramie or sport? 2 wheel or 4 wheel, 6 or 8 cyl engine?

according to amazon and advance auto the replacement torque convertor is the same for 96 and 98 v8's both 5.2 and 5.2 engines so I would say yes. The drive trains are similar and a junk yard can verify via the vin #'s too.

If the engine seems to run fine over 1450 RPM maybe there is a vacuum hose leaking or EGR valve is slightly stuck open. Any help from the OBD II trouble codes? Or is there simply no MIL and no stored information in the OBD II computer read at the local parts store through the connector by the drivers knee?
