Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD
I have a 01 dodge 1500 v6. What the inital problem was that i start the truck and it wouldn't idle it would just die. I asked a mecanic buddy of mine and he said it was the idle air control. So i replaced the part the first time and it was doing the sane thing, so i took it off again and started the truck without it on and it idled at like 3000 rpm so i narrowed down that the part was obviousally bad from the factory so i took it back to auto zone and got a new part put it in and it worked fine...for a week. So i called my buddy up again and he said that eletric parts from these auto chains are usuall junk so i got my money back went to an authorized dealer and got a certified part. I put that one in and it worked so i turned the truck off, put the air cleaner back together and tried to start it again and you guessed it it started doing the same thing!! Please Help!!
Another very likely problem is the throttle position sensor. Is the check engine light on and have you checked the codes? If not, do so. The code won't tell you for sure, but I'll bet it points to the throttle position sensor.

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.
