I have a 99 dodge ram 2500 v10 4wd I have changed idle air sensor. Complete tune up coils wires and plugs I chaged drive o2 sensor cause light was on but truck still runs rough like it has a misfire on a cyclinder. Heres what it does when at idle ir kinda pops in the exhaust like it has a miss or loading up on fuel you can rev motor a couple of times and it clears up when u rev motor u can smell a hint of fuel. If I sit at a red light and go to take off it starts to sputter with very low power if u ride it out and listen u can hear it popping in the exhaust like a backfire but when it clears you get massive power quick and then its fine till next red light. If you drive truck on interstate your fine no problems hits passing gear fine. Im stumped can anyone help please

Start with a compression test. Once that is done, make sure you have the wires on correctly. It is easy to cross them.

What was the codes? When did this start?

Do you have acess to a scan tool? You need to monitor the long term trims on the o2 sensors to see what is happening

What about a injector problem not allowing injector or injectors to fully close and loading up on fuel? Just a thought.
