It could possibly be a sensor but i am almost positive it will tell you that your idle speed is too low. You must set your idle speed back to normal. Go to your throttle cable and there should be a screw (maybe two if you have cruise control) that you can move back and forth to control position of throttle spring. Once you have your RPM's set around 800 (or at smooth idle without sounding too high) then you have corrected your idle speed.

Hello, sounds like you may have a engine miss, things like spark plugs, plug wires, fuel injectors can cause a engine miss. you will need to have the system scanned for trouble codes. once a trouble code has been pulled form the system you will have a much better idea what the problem might be

Vehicle suddenly turns off when stopped. Some puttering heard.


Maybe the mass airflow sensor,this is hard to diagnose sometimes.But this could also be a fuel delivery problem as well,such as the fuel filter,or the fuel pump.I would get the tuneup first though,just to rule it out if it needs it.

Code p1684 2002 chrysler


Check,tighten & clean all battery connections & Have your battery tested.Load tested. Usually a weak, or defective battery will cause this code to come up also. While they're at it, have them test charging system. My guess is autozone will check it free or cheap, if you buy the new battery there if required. Have you noticed it turning over maybe a little slower when starting occassionally?
