Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Truck
Dodge 2001 ram / v8 5.9....i had replaced the idle control valve, this seems to have corrected 3/4 of the problem it does not rev as high, and the problem comes and goes it's not persistant, while checking the throttle body when it was running ok and warm it did want to rev up briefly then corrected its self, the cables for the throttle do have a little play but they are not bound up. I have been using a fuel injection cleaner, and run 93 octane fuel, ......under cold conditions i had taken the throttle pedal and lifted it up and just let go and just by doing that can cauce the rpms to fluctuate.....hope you can get me pointed in the right direction!! John in fairfield PA USA!!
Have you by any chance taken a multimeter & tested your TP (throttle position) sensor ? If you think you might know how, let me know & we'll guide you through it. If not, at least take wiring plug off & clean both plug & TP sensor contacts with contact cleaner, and inspect for any corrosion while doing it. When putting plug back on, use a little di-electric grease in the connection. Have you sprayed your throttle body & throttle plate good with throttle body cleaner recently?

will not idle when cold?
runs lean and idles rough?
Engine stumbles coming off idle when warm?
Erratic idle on car?
Low idle when cold out side?
Idle Air Control (IAC) Valve Replacing?
Engine quits at idle?
Car overheats and Air blows hot at idle?
While stop engine idles like cylinder missing?
This will help.
