Question about 1997 Dodge Avenger
I saw your solution for the other 2 people who had the same problems with their engines. i just bought a 1997 dodge avenger V6 2.5L after i got it i hooked it up to one of those computers at autozone and it said i had a misfire in one of the cylinders. so wat i did was i bought all new wires and spark plugs and new gaskets for it to c if that would fix the problem. after i got everything back together it ran perfectly fine for 1 day with no problems. then the next day after i got off of work and i started it the car did not want to stay idling at the usual rpm's. i spoke with my mechanic and he thought it might be the pcv valve. i replaced it and it still was not running right. the car will idle at very low rpm's if it's not moving, but if i'm driving it and i am going down a hill or i stop at a red light the car will die. the only way i can keep it running is if i put my foot on the gas slightly. i saw that u told the other people on here that it was the Idle Air Control motor. I just wanted to check with u and c if u thought that was the problem with my car. thanks
Check your EGR valve. It may be stuck open. I had a similar problem 2 years ago on my 97 avenger w/ 2.5L V6. Engine idled rough and would die when I stopped at a stop sign unless I feathered the gas pedal as I coasted to a stop. Replaced EGR valve, problem solved.

I have owed a 97 Avenger with the V6 2.5 for about 5 years. I have to say I love this car it runs great looks great and has never given me any problems and I DRIVE the hell out of her. It's been sitting for about 13 months never started it or anything just 2 days ago I had to go and move it because the house it was at got sold reasin for it sitting was because I lost my licence. Anyways after pumping up the tires, checking oil, and brakes fulids I jumped her, and to my amazment it gave me ZERO problems, the back tires where seized but after rocking it I drove around the block a few times with one foot on the gas and one on the brake just to try and kleen them up alittle. then I drove her home about a 40 minute drive, she ran great no problem and she still had all her pick up. I LOVE MY AVENGER. only problem is i need a new battery because of it sitting and new pads but thats it
