SOURCE: 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 won't idle

First thing I'd do is remove idle speed motor, or idle air control, same thing, different names. remove wire connector, remove motor, and get some throttle body spray cleaner, and spray shaft & tip of motor well & clean it all up, as well as spray in to port (hole) that it came out of. Re-install & try that. They are pretty common problem. If it cure it for a while, then starts to act up again, replace it, and clean port well before installing new one. here's a link to give you an idea of what your looking for, click on pictures to expand them.

SOURCE: 1990 DODGE D150 WON'T START WHEN HOT

There is a temp. sensor on the exhaust manifold that I just switched out on car that done the same thing it would start when cold but once it was hot and you killed the car it would not start back. When this goes bad its throwing the wrong signal to the computer that it is too hot and allowing it not to crank. This sensor was on the left side of the engine if your facing the car from the front. Also It can be tested with a multimeter to see if it is bad.

1996 mercedes c280 dies when put in drive


Engine stalls or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Starts and dies unless I rev it up then it will Idle


The battery might be low but I doubt it is causing the "no idle" problem.
You should have an idle air control valve that the computer uses to adjust idle speed. That valve could be faulty or dirty.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

Our 1995 Dodge caravan starts fine dies.


Do the following

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue 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

I have a 1985 Dodge slant 6 225 ci. When I try to start the motor the only way isto shoot starting fluid into the carb. Once the motor is running it wont idle and when I try to pull out it starts out ok...


sounds like you have a major carb problem i would rebuild it or buy one from the parts store already rebuilt ..dont forget a new fuel filter!.....also check your fuel pump for pressure and volume.

Truck will not stay running without giving gas after a jump off


when the battery goes dead it looses its memory on engine settings like idle speed.. two things you can do first one is to clean the throttle bore with carb cleaner... the other is to start with foot on gas and slowly bring it back to idle... it will pick up the idle air position to keep itself running if you do it slowly... everything happens over time so as the throttle gets dirty the computer makes these adjustment on its own and when the battery dies it starts out basicly at different percentage of idle control tht it really needs because of the carbon buildup on the throttle plates

Hard starts, drive when it wants and dies when it wants???


There's probably a group of solenoids around the engine bay somewhere, and these are part of it. I believe the speed control vacuum solenoid is for the cruise control system, and the vent solenoid I think would be for the evaporative emissions system-what keeps your gas vapors from the tank escaping to air- but traps them in a charcoal canister full of charcoal. The canister is probably under the hood too. Those solenoids act as on-off switches for controlling vacuum to other parts. You need to look at the wiring for them is what the code is saying.
The code may or may not be related to your hard starting or no start conditions. Sounds pretty bad. Check for a major air or vacuum leak around the vacuum lines and the intake manifold.
After that, probably back to basics-gas or spark may be giving you a problem. Monitor the fuel pressure, engine off and engine running. Check for a strong blue spark on all cylinders.
