Question about 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab
Hey, increasing your idle may not be the problem but here's how to do it, on the top and middle of the engine you'll see a plastic throttle body cover, pop that off, you'll see a spring with a throttle adjustment screw, give the spring and throttle arm a spray of WD-40, then slowly turn the screw while idling. I dont know if you've checked the basics yet, but it could also be something fairly simple like your spark plugs, plug wires, ignition coil, distributor cap, or even a badly clogged air filter. Good luck

Adjusting the idle that way is illegal by federal epa restictions....the likely problem is a bad ais motor...if your engine is a 3.9 5.2 or 5.9 it is in the center of the back of the throttle body
