    Try shaving your head and pouring honey all over it and if nothing else at least butterflys will like it.

Have you changed your fuel filter? try that if you havent. plugged filter will allow the car to idle and run at slow speeds around town but will fall on its face when you mash down on the peddle

Fuel not getting to engine


I doubt it is the injectors. It could be the pump, but I would also wonder about the gas tank venting system.
If the injectors were at fault, waiting a few minutes would have no effect. They would still be gunked up or failing. Same thing with the fuel pump.
If the gas tank were building up pressure, it could be very difficult for the fuel pump to work. But then you should be getting a check engine light if the computer can not vent the tank.
Its possible one of the O2 sensors is going bad, but again you should be getting a check engine light.

2007 Dodge Ram Sticky Gas peddle


http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/recalls/results.cfm Here is a link to all the recalls on your truck.

As for the problem with the sticky throttle. Dodge has a issue with there throttle body sticking when the pedal is hammered. There is a relatively easy problem to fix. Basically you just get some throttle body cleaner, clean the throttle body, and you also get some grease (not oil) and you lube the linkage on your throttle on the top of your engine.

I had a similar problem in a 1994 Taurus, and after spending nearly 300$ on ignition parts, it turns out the problem was a bad spark plug wire that cost me 8.88$ to replace.

Car starts but won't stay running


Could be many things. Try changing the fuel filter and look for any disconnected or cracked vacuum lines. Another problem could be you have a clogged fuel injector or bad gasoline. Try adding some fuel injector cleaner and octane boost to the gas. It's always best to rule out the cheapest things first.
