Hello, I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500
with a 5.7l Hemi. Two days ago I was out and about running errands. The truck ran perfectly fine. When I came out of the store from my third stop of the day I went to turn on the truck and she started, but then immediately died. I tried again and she started no problem again but immediately died again. Even with me pressing the gas pedal, the engine will rev a bit then die. I thought it may have been bad gas so I drained the tank using the fuel pump. I disconnected the line going to the fuel rail then ran a jumper from pin 87 for the fuel pump relay to the battery
and the fuel pump make it flow out quite nicely and it was a FULL tank. The truck will however stay running if I spray starter fluid into the intake. Any help would be appreciated.

JA: Are you fixing your Ram 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes I am, and everything I have tried is listed.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Nope thats about it
