I have a 1995 Dodge Ram 4x4 with a 5.2. Will not idle when warm.

I have a 1995 Dodge Ram 4x4 with a 5.2. I have replaced the plugs, Wires and Distributor cap and rotor. As soon as it reachs running temp it will not idle. The only error code I am getting is the Transmission Temp Sensor. Does anyone have a solution to my problem?

The most logical thing to do would be to check the engine temperature sensor with an ohmmeter. (you can buy a multimeter for $3 at Harbor Freight) While I don't know exactly what it should be, I would assume most sensors go to 0 or infinite ohms when they go bad, and that this only happens after it warms up.

But you could also check the O2 sensor, air mass sensor, fuel pressure, vacuum leak, etc.
These could all do it.

While I did not know the transmission had a temp sensor, and I am not sure it would matter, that is also worth checking into.
Ask the parts counter at the dealer to show you the image of where the trans temp sensor is located.

If the engine seems to run fine over 1450 RPM maybe there is a vacuum hose leaking or EGR valve is slightly stuck open. Any help from the OBD II trouble codes? Or is there simply no MIL and no stored information in the OBD II computer read at the local parts store through the connector by the drivers knee?
