This is most commonly caused by the idle control valve on most cars. This can become dirty over time, and from time to time requires removal and cleaning or replacement. Please check this component first.

SOURCE: Window regulator for a dodge dakota sport 4x4 2002

they are not too bad, you have to find althe screw on the panel and then they have some plastic fasteners that pry up usually.Before you pry on them make sure all screw from top to bottom are out.Try to lift upward on door panel if it doesnt slide upward they are the pry out pop out clips mentioned above.you always start at the bottom.Work your way around..you have to remove the door handle and the switch cover should just pop out.You will need something to hold window one you are able to remove the regulator to window mount bolt The rest is really simple you look at new regulator and have it front of you and you will know what need to be done including the removal of plug to the motor. Be care ful and also once you remove the mount bolt from glass to regulator allow window glass to go downward to get the regulator part down and awy from the glass,Once it is down slide window up all the out of way and wedge it up.Remove and install new one. Good luck

SOURCE: 1999 dodge neon gas pedal won't accelerate

Try cleaning the throttle body. Use a throttle body cleaner and do not flood the throttle body with the cleaner. You will have to open the throttle up and spray around the butterfly. It most likely carbon buildup and causing the butterfly to stick when you accelerate. A couple of short sprays will be fine, clean with a cloth. You will see a lot of black buildup flow out of the throttle body. After you wipe dry, let the intake hose stay off for a few minutes for the throttle to dry out.

Im sorry to say this but your head gasket has failed. Have a reputable mechanic look at it. Cross contamination of fluids is a tell-tale sign of a blown head gasket. Good luck
