Question about 1998 Dodge Stratus
Ok, this started being a once in awile thing now it happens all the time. Whenever i drive my car now when i break at a redlight or even when a car slows down in front of me Rpms drop and car stalls out. It is a 98 2.4 liter. also if i am driving normal and i put it in neutral it will stall. I have read multiple forums on it and there seems to be no fix unless they fixed it and just didn't update it. so it went from once every two months and in the last week anytime I drive it. when it stall i can put in nuetral and starts right away. it idles roughly at 800 rpm when i start it. and think it was at 1k rpm before this started happening

I took my 1999 Dodge RAM 1500 Club Cab in for service for a
similar issue. It would run okay for 3-5 minutes, then stall unless I revved
the engine to keep the idle higher. The second it idled lower it stalled. I
thought it might be my alternator.
Anyway, my mechanic found that the mass airflow sensor was blocked, not allowing enough air to flow. They also found that the throttle body was gummed up. They cleaned both and it runs fine now

Change/thoroughly clean the idle control solenoid. It may be sticking and causing rough idling.
Cleaning it is unlikely to be more than a short-term solution.
