Question about 2001 Dodge Dakota
I checked for vacuum leaks an thee are non, throttle cables isnt stick no where....have no earthly clue whats wrong with my truck
If you know for a fact the throttle plate is closed, and there are no vac leaks, the only thing left is the idle air control valve on the side of the throttle body. It may be stuck open.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air enters the intake thru the control valve.

try cleaning the idle speed control motor with carb spray, it may just have sludge in it causing it to stick, have a dakota myself and had a similiar issue, cleaned the motor and all was well.

1. check fluid level ---- in neutral ,not parkand at operating temp.
2.check throttle pressure cable for binding and adjustment
3.Replace Governor Pressure Sensor and a Governor Pressure Control Solenoid

Testimonial: "great, thank you"
check everything you can under the hood your air intake system all of it especially make sure all clamps are tight .. and make sure all vacuum hoses are good and not cracking or broken or just loose . you might run a little fuel cleaner through a tank of gas too cleaning the engine fuel system up some. just a few ideas..

Sounds like a vaccuum, or gasket leak. Easiest way to diagnose is to get a can of starting fluid and spay it around any vacuum hoses and intake area while it's running. Be careful! Starting fluid is extremely flammable!
If you notice an acceleration, or de-celeration while spraying the starting fluid, you should be able to pinpoint the leak.

sounds like the fuel pump is plugged up. measure the fuel pressure if you can. also would disconnect the fuel filter,and crank it for a few seconds ,draining the fuel into a clear container to see if it is contaminated.banging on the tank with a piece of wood may dislodge some stuff too.never run below 1/4 tank with an electric pump,as it uses the fuel to cool the pump.
