you have a vacuum leak.

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Chrysler Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 27 days ago

you need to check all the vacuum hoses for signs of damage or being disconnected.

should I have replaced the intake manifold gasket? could that be it?
Chrysler Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 27 days ago

if any gasket is disturbed doing a certain job, it is always a good idea to replace it

gasket replaced. Still same issue
Chrysler Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 25 days ago

ok, you are going to need to do a smoke test to see where the leak is. normally I would have you spray carb cleaner around all vacuum hoses and connections and intake base WHILE THE ENGINE IS RUNNING TO SEE IF YOU GET THE RPMS TO CHANGE BUT SINCE ITS NOT STAYING RUNNING, A SMOKE TEST HAS TO BE DONE

you can always try to have the pcm reprogrammed, at this point its not going to hurt

Customer reply replied 21 days ago
What's the cheapest decent odb reader that's able to reprogram a pcm (with laptop assistance)? Taking it to the shop on Thursday, but looking into buying a good unit.
Customer reply replied 21 days ago
or without laptop. If that's possible
Chrysler Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 20 days ago

there is no obd reader with that capability. the cheaper scan tool to do that job would be approximately 1200-2500

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
