Question about 1999 Dodge Durango
I've got 99 Dodge Durango that has recently started dying when I slow to a stop. It does not heat up or has any other indicators of serious problems. The check engine light is not on and it starts fine, even after it dies. It will stay on fine while idling. I've done a tune-up (wires, plugs, air filter, oil, fluids, ect.) everything looked good but no change. Any Ideas? Maybe the fuel filter (I don't relish the idea of dropping the tank)? Or a sensor somewhere?
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
