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.

Ford explorer stalling, sputtering and dying on acceleration


Possible fuel pressure issue. Is the check engine light on? If so, have the codes scanned for problamatic sensors. ( MAP/MAF). If no check engine light on then do a fuel pressure test to verify proper pressure. Does it run well at lower speeds/idle?

On My 2002 Hyundai Elantra after 5-10 min of driving fast and hard accelaration will downshift the transmission.What can cause that,?Check engine light is not on...


Most modern automatic transmissions have a chip in them that will prevent the car from downshifting, say, into first gear when you're moving at 60 mph. Still, I wouldn't try it. When climbing a hill, only downshift if the AT can't decide which gear to be in and switches back and forth--choose the lower one. When descending use brakes to decelerate. However, once you've braked, do use a low gear to coast in, to prevent you from freely accelerating down the hill.

Acceleration problems ,at hiway speeds, needing more speed car downshifts sputters misses then eventually snaps backto normal whats up?


Ok. I'll give you my best guess, although I am not a Dodge Stratus expert. Based upon your description of the problem, I am to assume that the vehicle has problems accelerating up to speed, but once there, cruises ok unless you are going uphill or need to accelerate quickly, then power falls off rapidly and acceleration returns very slowly. If that is accurate, I would suspect the EGR valve. This is because at ihighway cruising speeds the EGR valve is pretty much wide open, letting exhaust gases back into the intake. When you need to accelerate, pressing the accelerator results in intake vacuum drop. This is partially compensated for by closing the EGR valve. If the EGR fails to close or sticks partway open, the exhaust gases will lower intake vacuum even further, and rob engine power. This can also cause the onboard computer to force a downshift to the transmission, as vacuum sensors are used to determine engine loading and the need to reduce gearing. In addition, a partially open EGR valve can cause erratic idle as it affects static intake vacuum (EGR is normally closed at idle) and the onboard computer must continually compensate, resulting is unstable idling.

Torque converter problems or front pump not working or a huge vacuum leak on the engine.. Check them all. The sensor string can mess with the computer too. Have a diagnostic test done to pinpoint the faulty part.
