1999 dodge ram 1500 5.2 4x4 when I drive it down the road it act like it's not getting gas then when I push the gas pedal down sometimes it will take off running fine and other times it will backfire try to stall. The map senser was bad so we replaced it.Now the truck has a hard time starting up and I have to keep my foot on the gas pedal to keep it running. I can not even drive it now and the only vehicleI I have. Is it my fuel pump maybe? The truck has 170,000 miles on it.Please Help!

Sounds to me like your over fueling. Are you sure you have the map connected correctly. Make sure with the engine running you have vacuum. A plugged vacuum line can cause your problems. Make sure no pins are bent in the connector. Listen with the engine running for a large vacuum leaks.

Pull your AIS motor off, clean with throttle body spray, especially pintle (pointed end) and hole it came out of , re-install & try again, see if that helps. If it works good for a while & acts up again, replace it.

I installed new intake monifold gaskets because the bottom one was sucking air in and my 1996 dodge intrepid 3.5 liter engine would run at 2300 RPM'S. After changing the gaskets the car is hard to start...


Take it to bits again and check the gasket you put on and all the other gaskets as it still sounds like you have air sucking and a blockage somewhere else so check out all parts you done and the parts you dident

Find your throttle valve cable attached up near cable from throttle pedal ,it's the one that runs down behind toward transmission. With engine off in park,park brake on, Have someone push gas pedal to the floor & observe that cable, to make sure it is retracting properly when pedal released. Now get under & watch where that cable attaches & watch it while doing the same with gas pedal. The lever that it attaches to should move freely & rotate one way when gas pedal pushed, and should return all the way the other way when pedal released. Sometimes that linkage or cable will get seized, and not return fully, which will hold transmission in lower gear. You can use your hand to make sure it is returning all the way if necessary, and if needed, apply penetrating spray to loosen it up, then apply something like white lithium grease to coat it after it's unseized, to prevent repeat in near future.
