I have a 98 Ram pickup, 5.9 ltr. 4x4. After I drive for about 5 min., it begins to miss, backfire, crapout... for about 2minutes, then it runs fine. Any ideas?

Best way to trouble shoot this one is to connect to real time OBD II. And watch what input or output is failing. The cost will be around $75 (depending on where you live). This will give you momentary input or output glitches that you appear to have.It sounds like a thermal issue on a sensor.
