If you have blowby you have oil getting past your rings.or through a valve which can also be causing the misfire..the sensors you need to have it dianosed with a computer to see if there are any error codes

2002 dodge ram 4.7 rough idle and sometimes dies at red lights or stopped in traffic i cleaned throttle body no change could it be my map sensor going bad? Can i clean it? Where is it located


Check for any vacuum leaks from loose/disconnected/swollen hoses under the hood. Is the check engine light on? If so, scan the codes to see if any sensors may be suspect before guessing

I have a 2004 Dodge Stratus (4cyl) that idles rough (almost stalls out), dies on start up and recently had a flashing engine light (backfire error). Any suggestions? No other issues, water pump and timing...


Could be the idle air control, once these start hanging up inside, they can cause as variety of problems with idle speed (can become wildly random) or simply a failure to idle at all.

These links should help:

This could also be caused by a failing ignition pack.

Why would a 2000 Stratus rough idle then die?


if now it won`t start it could be a spark(ignition)problem, check for spark at the plug. you should check for a code in the pcm this may help, not all codes set the check engine light. could also be a bad fuel pressure problem.

1999 dodge stratus car runs for awhile then dies check engine light comes on code P0505


P0505: Idle Air Control System

There is a small motor that controls the amount of air the engine gets when you aren't using the throttle. The computer uses this small motor to control your idle. It sounds like it needs to be replaced. You can try cleaning it first with some throttle body & air intake cleaner.
