Take the cover off air intake and look down the hole. If it's all black and sooty looking take a brass brush and some choke cleaner and clean it up. Be carefull not to scrub too hard or get a bunch of cleaner down there. That may solve it for a while but if not, try a new cap, rotor, plugs and wires.

Upon starting 99 ram 1500 it starts to idle down and almost die but once i give it gas its fine for a while what to do?


Have someone check the idle air control valve. When you are idling the intake air takes a different path into the motor than it does when you depress the accelerator. A hunting / erratic idle is a good indicator of a faulty IAC. Sometimes you can clean them but best to replace.
