Question about 1997 Dodge Neon
Hi everyone. Before I bring my wife's 1998 es300 for an idling start up problem, I'd thought I'd try and get some advice. Basically, her car will start, but dies as soon as you take your foot off the gas pedal. It seems driveable, but you have to keep the rpm's up by throttling it, which can't be good. Is this something like a relay or fuse that I can replace myself? My *very* basic instincs tell me this is probably electrical related but my remedial highschool auto power experience keeps me from accuratley diagnosing it. I am, therefore, at the mercy of a Mechanic. Any thoughts, advice or experience is greatly appreciated. -L Exactly the same problem on a 1997 Neon. Have used throttle body and IAC spray cleaner without taking the car "apart".
