P1238 is engine coolant temperature is too low. Most likely a stuck open thermostat. Codes P0300, P0301, and P0302 are misfire codes. Random/ multi-cylinder misfire, misfire cylinder number 1, and misfire cylinder number 2. Code P0138 is high voltage at the upstream oxygen sensor. I'd start by replacing the thermostat with a correct 195°F one and a complete tune up. If your Ram has over 100,000 miles on it you're overdue for a tune up. Then clear the computer and see if the oxygen sensor code pops up again (P0138). HTH. -Jim
