Question about 1999 Dodge Ram
Truck will run and idle but when you go to drive it and take your foot off the gas it shuts off
Sounds like a case book example of the Idle Air Control valve being either very dirty so the valve is failing to open or the ports to it are obstructed with crud or there is a break in the electric connection to it. the IAC is held in place by a couple of bolts on the side of the throttle body. Disconnect the wiring plug and remove. The valve is a cone shaped plug with spring at the back of it. Soak everything liberally with carburettor choke cleaner and leave to dissolve the dirt for about 15 minutes. Do the same to the valve seat and ports on the throttle. Clean thoroughly - a good make shift tool is a bit of frayed length of hand brake cable as a flexible brush to get into the tricky places. Wipe everything clean and reinstate. Job done
