I have a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 with the 5.9 liter in it, i couldnt keep it running when i stopped at stop signs, the two things i tried, was taking off the air cleaner and sprayed carb cleaner into the intake manifold with the engine running, using the carb cleaner and the throttle linkage to keep it running, before i did this i noticed the throttle valves were dirty, so I inspected the air filter housing and saw it was cracked in multiple places. The second thing i did was reset the computer using a scanner then took my truck out on the highway and drove at least 50 MPH for at least a mile which re-learned the computer. I hope this helps you, it sure worked for me.

Usually a rough idle caused by a vacuum leak, check your hoses and thottle body base gasket. It could also be the idle air control valve.

It runns OK when you first start it? This is a stick shift truck? They are prone to a vacume leak in the bottom of the intake manifold. To checki this pu;; the PCV valve out of the valve cover and plug the hole in the cover and let the valve just hang there, Remove the hose from the other side valve cover and plug the valve cover ( the hose goes to the air filter housing ) Run the truck with both of these plugged and if it fixes the problem. Remove the intake manifold and change the gaskets. This is a common problem and for a while there the dealers were covered up with this job.
