rbd1313 is on a distinguished road

Retested, map,tps,crank shaft, cam, iac, and I see were I went wrong with them being hooked up vs not hooked. Everything tested ok. Started the truck up went to wiggle and jiggle connectors and grounds plug wires and even changed the cap/rotor. It died once and only once wiggling the wires to the black connector going to the computer. Could not get it to do it again.

Drove fine for about 3 days and tonight died shortly after starting it before I got it into drive. Started right back up got to the end of the Street about 200 yards and died took some cranking to start it then would just die and start and die got it started for a 3rd time kept it reving about 2000-2500 dropped it into great done fine until the next slow down to pull into a parking lot and dried......

I had torque lite guess I didn't understand the log feature and learned something about PIDs but can't see where to get any or Dodge didn't share it's secrets I guess. But up graded to the torque pro version. Anyone have a bit of knowledge in what to select, PIDs, or anything of the sort to help me use Torque Pro to narrow my issue I'd appreciate it.

Ready to take it to a nice mechanic that's worked on my wife's car in the past but with it being random I rather not wait a week to heard he didn't find anything in the hour or so he takes to look at it.

I'll double check that connector on the coil it could be oxidizing or something I guess
