2005 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7 Engine. Starts fine, Idles fine, but when engine shifts into high gear and RPM lowers engine runs really rough under load

Have you checked for a broken valve spring. Repaired a dodge engine with the same running issue as you have described and it was a broken intake valve spring.

Can a MAP sensor just be faulty?

try this, disconnect map sensor while running. if it runs a lot worse or rough. map is ok. but if it does not make a difference the way the engine runs it is bad. if disconnected the engine may shut off. this tells you the sensor is doing its job. yes they can go bad!

2001 jimmy..engine starts and runs for 6sec then shuts off,starts again and shuts off I can rev engine but after 6sec it shuts off...I have changed coil and I am going to change knock sensor.what do you...

Huh??? Why change the Knock Sensor? The Knock Sensor is not going to cause your engine to shut down. Sounds like a Cam Sensor or MAP Sensor problem to me. Is the computer setting any codes?

Sometimes you can diagnose a messed-up MAP sensor by unplugging it and starting the engine. If the MAP is causing your problem, it will start and run. (It won't run very good, but it should idle OK)

If you have a 4.3L engine, I have seen Cam Sensors cause a start and stall condition. (part of the distributor assembly)

1991 s15 4.3 TBI jimmy will not idle

Might just be the timing is off a bit, turn your distributor or if it has a carburator, the choke might need to be turned up.

Engine runs rough after about ten minutes /idles really low

Just trowing some suggestions out there, but, I would check the idle air control valve (solenoid) or the throttle position sensor. If they check out then my last guess would be the map sensor or the vaccuum to the map sensor. Hope I was able to help. Best wishes.

Sounds more like a mass air flow sensor problem.

Intermittent check engine light, runs rough

You have 2 codes, 8 and 5, code 8 is the TDC sensor, this would cause a no start, the code 5 is for the MAP sensor, it may be disconnected or defective.
