On back side of throttle body you will find a air idle control it will have torx bolts and an electrical plug remove it and clean it with carb cleaner it will solve your problem.

It may not be the battery at all. Have a mechanic check the Throttle Position Sensor, the Idle Air Control Valve and the Manifold Air Pressure Sensor to see if any need replacement. If faulty, any of these can cause erratic idling and stalling. Good luck!

Rpms move up and down at idle,sometimes engine stops when I come to stop or slow down to turn.


sounds like a vaccum leak or a engine speed sensor. you can go to autozone and have them do a code search for free.

88 dodge dakota


Are you talking about the Idle Stop Switch? if so it is located on the carburetor, above the throttle linkage. If you are talking about the Idle Stop Solenoid then it is located on the right side of the carburetor near the throttle linkage.

If this helps please rate me.

88 dodge dakota has rough idle and stalls at slow down.


Change/thoroughly clean the idle control solenoid. It may be sticking and causing rough idling.
Cleaning it is unlikely to be more than a short-term solution.
