Default Rough Starts 98 dodge

So a few weeks back my dodge was cranking over really slow... i put in new starter and it still cranked slow THEN i put in new spark plugs and the thing cranked over normal and fired right up.

Now.. 2 weeks later its cranking over slow again!! and barley starts.. it takes me a few trys to get it to finaly start but even then if i dont keep it reved for a few seconds it well die.

I was experimenting with it today and if i rev it up real quick and let off the gas it dies. (this is when its warmed up)

normal town driving it well never die on me and it performs normal.. no power loss it just has a hell of a time startinig

Slow cranking can be caused by poor battery/ground connections, starter problems, a weak battery, or mechanical problems relating to the engine. The dying is probably a dirty throttle body and IAC motor.

also take all the conncections of the grounds on your frame if you can and the ones connected to your starter clean everything that allways helps and the dieing is probably like ramtech said the idle air control valve on the back of the throttle body.
