Did you check to see if there is power to the glow plugs if not then that may be the problem and if there is power when you cycle the key not to start but for the plugs to warm up you may have a bad glow plugs.

May have no spark due to a bad crank sensor, which is responsible for spark when it gets a pulse through the cars' computer.

1997 dodge ram 1500 4x4 360 engine starts when cold turn it off after it reaches operating temp will crank wont start no voltage to coil inlet and outlet

run fault codes and check for ambient air temp/water temp/cam/crank position servos/sensors faults. Something that is controlled by temperature that is connected to the cpu is telling it not to start as it is out of parameters.

2002 Dodge Ram Fuel Delivery Issue

a common problem with all dodge products from 95 or so to recently especially the trucks was running out of gas and the guage 8 times out of ten would read1/4 tank.
to check for this crank it then under hood locate the shradef valve on the fuel rail, remove the cap and depress the valve[like letting air out of a tire] if a spray of fuel comes out that part is ok. but if air or air and a little fuel come out put some gas in it and get a new fuel level sender
ps i am assuming its a gas engine

97 dodge ram wont idle. starts and sounds fine when you give it some gas

Pull your IAC (idle air control) motor off and give it & port it comes out of a good cleaning with carb or throttle body cleaner & try it. If it cure's it for a while but starts to do it again in future, replace it. let me know how it works.
