I installed a new fuel pump today in my '96 dakota, V6. When I start the truck,it runs for a second and dies. If I hold just a little pressure on the accelarator it continues to run, and then it will idle after removing my foot from the accelarator. Is this common? Will it eventually crank normally?

Sounds like a problem with the IAC motor (Idle Air Control Motor). Pull it off and give it a good cleaning with some carb. cleaner. Clean the air passages as well with a pipe brush.
