Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just started last night... My 2002 Dodge Ram stalled and will only fire up when you step on the throttle... The minute you let off the throttle it stalls again... It has a new Camshaft sensor in it...

Check for vacume leaks,then check the idle air control valve.

Thanks I will look at that... I just ordered a Crankshaft Position Sensor... Do you think it might be that??? I also used booster cables the other day to charge another car and now I read that you shouldn't use them with any car with a computer... It ran fine for a few days after that... I know the crankshaft sensor was bad or going though...

You could try the sensor,but IMO if bad would give you a no crank issue or skipping engine,if engine runs good with no skip with foot on gas,and only shuts off when you let off gas,check for what i said above.

Oh one more thing comes to mind,if you have not change your fuel filter may be time.
