truck won't stay running

Asked by Oct 18, 2016 at 08:33 PM about the 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr ST Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok I need some help. 96 ram 1500 2wd. About a
month ago, made a trip to illinois, died once, let sit
for a minute, started back up. Half way there,
stopped for food. Went to leave and wouldn't start.
A gentleman told me he had a truck do the same
and suggested hitting the bottom of the tank. Tried
it, and it started right up. Ran fine all the way there,
and all the way back. (870 miles total) but once
back home, stopped again. Sometimes we would
hit the tank, it would start but soo. Cut out.
Jumped in bed of truck. Would start but soon start
sputtering. If someone stayed In the bed and
jumped, it would Rev up and take off, but cut out
again. Now, it won't even start. Replaced fuel pump
already, battery is good. Cleaned injectors, starter
is fine. Tires are fine (just saying before someone
tells me to check that.  Tried travelinggirls idea.
Didn't work. Turns over and occasion starts bur
dies right away. Need help please
