97 dodge ram 2500
97 dodge ram2500 just bought 3 weeks ago broke down twice ...here what happened driving to work the check engine light came on stalled out.(bout 1/2 mile from work i work at lowes) when i tryed to restart ,it ran but just barely popping out the throttle body,and wouldnt move.acted like it was not getting gas.had to wait an hr before i could get back to it put a gallon of gas in started right up drove to the station 1 mile away put 30 bucks worth in, started right up acted fine drove off and as soon as i got on the highway it did the same thing.. stalled, popping etc etc. had it towed to where i bought it they said it was a loose wire on the alarm system shorting out??? 2 days later on 295 did it again stalled for no reason this time 115 degress out and had my wife and dog with me. any ideas had it towed back this time cost me 50 bucks extra i still owe 3400 on this......... ok update they had it for 3 days had in running for 2 days idleing in lot, "cant fix whats not broken" the guy says.. fuel pump was checked,lines no leaks, no trouble codes show up,had a recent tuneup before i bought it, new wires, plugs, coil was checked,. the thing is when it stalls, by the time a tow truck gets it to a garage it starts and runs fine like nothing happened. i told them to jack the rear wheels off the ground and let it run under load.or drive it to the shore and back. this truck is like a time bomb u never know when its gonna act up again.
