I have a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2l. I turned it on and shuts right off. I can only keep it running while hitting the gas pedal. Sometimes it's cranking really slow then cranks normal. What can it be?

Have it read for codes, even if the check engine light is NOT on the computer will have stored information and codes. Discount auto stores will read codes for no fee. write them down.
