It won't Idle if you give it gas it just bogs down. I had it towed to shop the day I bought it or my wife bought it from her sister as a surprise gift for me. We had the truck towed, and the gas tank and lines cleaned, plugs changed, and two ignition coiles creplaced, it still wouldn't crank and run proper. I then took it to my local dodge dealer who replaced the PCM it still wouldn't Idle right so here I'm
