99 Dodge 2500 Dually - Idles Fine Dies In Gear - Help!!!
New guy here, live near Houston and am potentially buying a 99 Dodge Ram 2500 Dually. I'm needing a good tow rig for car shows etc and a good friend of mine is making me a deal on this one. The truck is 8 hours awy, and I would have to haul it back here to have it fixed.
He says it starts fine, idles fine, oil pressure looks good, etc. He says that when you put it into gear it dies. If you rev it up and put it into gear it stays running, but if you let it get to idle in gear it will die.
I know ZERO about these things, but the deal he is making me is too good to pass us as long as this doesn't mean something is terminally wrong with the motor/drivetrain.
Anyone here experienced this before?
Thanks in advance for your input.
