I'd start by removing the IAC motor & cleaning it & port it came out of with throttle body spray cleaner.. Careful, don't lose small "O" ring at base of it where it comes up flush against throttle body. Those things get gummed up at pintle and will cause stalling and give no codes. Sometimes cleaning will cure it for quite a while, but if it works & starts to do it again short time after, replace it.Not knowing your engine at this time, I can't give exact location for you to find it, but it's usually near front of throttle body, on side. If you go to autozone .com & look up IAC motor, enter your vehicle info, it should give you a picture to help you identify it easier if your not sure.

    If it runs down the highway fine, and stalls at idle , I'd have to disagree with you. If you've got enough fuel pressure to cruise down the highway with no problems, then enough fuel pressure for idling shouldn't be a problem should it?

Why won't my truck stay running when I'm not


Try cleaning your throttle body. Over time on high mileage vehicles, the throttle body butterfly valve will gunk up with sludge, and dirt. This will prevent air from entering the intake manifold while the engine is idling, causing low idle/stalling. A can of throttle body/carb cleaner will do the job. First, remove the intake tube to get to the butterfly valve. Spray a small amount of throttle body cleaner directly into the intake, and wipe any excess fluid with a cloth. Also, inspect your air filter. I hope this helps

Why will my 2000 dodge 1500 truck start and idle


then the normal suspects are...
IAT (intake air temp) sensor
IAC (idle air control) motor
dirty/corroded connections

do you see any specific weather conditions before/during the idle concern like cold and/or rain?

2000 dodge 1500 van wont start then starts hard or not at all


Sounds like the IAC sensor is bad..Try this when it doesnt start instead of pumping it which wont do anything because its computer controlled hold the gas pedal to the floor.If it start its the idle air control located on the throttle plate..So rememeber the day it doesn't start hold gas pedal to floor and start it.If nothing we have different problems..Let me know and I will guide you through next steps....
