I own a '98 Dodge Ram V6 P/U and I just installed a K &N Cold Air Intake to replace a cracked air cleaner box. I dealt with the same idling problem before I replaced it and after. I believe its a combination of ECU memory problems and the seal around the intake/throttle body. To remedy this I reset the ECU by taking off negative battery terminal while pressing on the brake several times to release excess voltage. While your situation is not quite the same a mine I would recommend looking at your air intake and try the ECU reset, it might work.

Check your cap and rotor button on the distributor and check you plugs and wires also to make shure nothing is cracked or burnt out.

I have 97 dodge ram 1500. Once tha truck reaches operating temp. it will stall at idle. Some times you drive it and it runs fine then you stop at a store get a snack and then it wont start with out pumping...

A few things actually lol. How long since its last tune up? A dirty air filter, worn spark plugs and wires and cap and rotor can cause a poor idle and stalling. Not to mention a dirty fuel filter. The fuel filter is in the gas tank unfortunatlly :(
Try giving it a basic tune up " about 45 dollars" and see if that helps. Good luck.

2003 dodge ram 5.7L intermittently has a rough idle and an idle rpm of 500 I think the normal is 650. When I put it in gear the idle picks up and smooths out. Sometimes it will do this in gear and stall...

okay, the o2 code can cause problems, theres a problem with one of the o2 sensors, theres 2 or 4 sensors,the repair was not done right or theres another bad o2 sensor, next thing i would check is the idle air control motor,this sounds like it sticks at time or just stops working,start with these things first,

Will not stay running at idle (stalls)

There should be an AIS automatic idle speed motor mounted on the side of your throttle body across from or near your throttle linkage, or in that area. Usually held on with 2 torx screws. That regulates your idle up & down as needed depending on load situations on the engine, so that it doesn't stall out. Quite often they get gummed up or become defective and cause stalling. Before spending money on parts etc, (by the way, I'm told autozone will scan it free of charge for codes) I would get a spray can of throttle body cleaner, remove the AIS motor & clean the plunger & tip real good, and also spray some cleaner into the port that you removed it from, rub a little vaseline on the "O" ring at the seal of AIS motor before you re-install, and put it back in, tighten up the screws & give it a try. If it cures it great, but if it acts same shortly after running good for a while, buy new & replace. A lot of the time, this thing does not show a fault code in the computer, so it gets overlooked. Keep us posted

Stalling issue

check for vacuum hose leak, listen for hissing sound a can a carb spray may assist you in finding this by spraying the hoses and watch for change in idle, this may not show a code if it not a constant problem. under load its ok when it tries to idle the vacuum leak will stall the motor..

Try disconnecting the battery (both terminals and let set for a few hours) with ALL the accessorries on lights-heater-radio etc. This will draw all power from your system, then recconnect battery, it's worth a try even if it doesn't solve your problem. Bill
