Default Engine Stalling???? First Post Ever!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Guys,

Just purchased a 99 ram from my sister. My nephew was the driver of this fine truck for about 3months. It has 109,000 miles on it and the only real problem(besides lack of hp) is when its first started it wont stay running unless you keep it above idling. you can start it up and slam it in gear and take off and it runs perfect unless you let off the gas then it dies. Once the old boy is warm up the truck performs flawless. Any ideas before i just start tearing into it?

Start by cleaning he throttle body and IAC motor. How long has it been since the truck was tuned up? Has the plenum pan gasket been replaced?
