1.Start by changing plugs and wires. 2.Check for vacuum leaks. With the engine running, wigglr every hose you can see, to make sure nothing is loose or cracked. 3.Change fuel filter. 4.Check timing. 5.Check air control valve. 6.Check idle control sensor.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you check the vacuum lines. If you have a worn out or disconnected vacuum lines these issues can occur. I'm suspecting the MAF sensor too. Before proceeding on replacement, please remove the throttle body and clean it with a carburetor cleaner till it's clear of carbon. Carbon deposits can make irregularities on the air flow.
If the problem still persists then go with the MAF sensor replacement. Hopefully, cleaning the throttle body resolves the problem to cut the cost.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Hi, Have you checked the thouttle sensor? Also replace the gas filter it maybe clogged and thats why it bucks. It's not getting enough gas for it to run correctly.

It seems I'm getting too much gas,my plugs are fouled out. The truck runs fine for 5 min when it's cold, then it will foul out if I don't keep giving it gas.

Sounds like your actually not getting enough gas, then your fouling your plugs because something isn't firing right. When your vehicle is cold it uses more gas to run smoother, then when it warms up it is leaning the fuel out and you have to keep giving it gas because it wants to die from not getting enough fuel. Whens the last time you've done a full tune up? or timing adjustment? check easy things first like air filter, plug wires....I'm sorry but I think it's going to be something a bit more difficult, atleast first start with your air filter.

This sounds like the electronics warming up.

The behavior of transistors varies greatly with temperature. The circuitry around them is designed to compensate for that, so that the behavior of the entire circuit is reasonably stable over the range of temperatures it is expected to encounter in normal operation.

As transistors age, their behavior can shift such that, when they are either quite warm, or quite cold, their parameters are too far off for the circuitry to effectively compensate.

The most frequent result of this in cars is for the device with the faltering components in it to fail completely at some point during the warm up phase, which, of course, is what you are experiencing.

If there is a separate electronic device that is responsible for the ignition (like the ignition module inside the distributor of a GM HEI ignition), I would suspect that first, followed by the engine's Electronic Control Module.

Porbably not getting enough gas or dirty. My 88 dodge caravan did that too until I put a cheap fuel-injector cleaner in with the gas, and started giving it more gas even in lower gears driving around town. Worth a try...

Pardon me if im wrong but there might have been a recall on that years model for the IAC motor. may not apply here because i dont know what rpms your at when it happens. Also watch your gas dodges are notorious for water in the gas tanks. I have a 1998 and it still does some of what yours does until it goes to closed loop and its truly warm(have to keep my foot into it until then or it will trip the knock sensor after a while.)This ethanol gas is horrible when you get below a quarter tank. hope this helps
