SOURCE: dodge ram 1500 engine rpms surge at freeway speed

those sensors could cause the issue, clean the MAF 1st, also clean the idle system using the following procedure, the IAC can cause cruise surge. I use this to cure these problems all the time.

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve (IAC) and throttle valve, 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.

SOURCE: 2006 Dodge Ram 2500, A/C blows hot at idle &

i had the same problem in my 2003 Durango!!
turns out the auxiliary fan was not working!!
that fan should run all the time when the a/c is on!!
so start the truck, turn the a/c on and then go look at the aux fan (the plastic electric one attached to the radiator) and make sure it is spinning!!

you need to put an oil pressure gauge on it and see what happens.what you will find is that the sender unit is no good.

SOURCE: idles speed adjustment to low in Toyota Camry 2004

Try cleaning the inside of the throttle body using a stiff brush and a can of air intake cleaner, remove all the carbon, make sure battery is disconnected while doing this, then reconnect and drive it for about 15 minutes this should restore the idle.

I have a 1986 GMC 1500 with a 5.0 and stock rochester carb. The truck will start but you must keep gassing it as it won't idle. It kicks off every time. Any suggestions on how to fix this cold natured


fast idle speed screw, works off the fast idle cam which the choke adjustment sets, it works together by linkages. This is the raised idle speed setting you need to keep a cold engine running. First you set the idle speed by the idle speed screw with engine at normal operating temperature. Then you set the linkage up so the cam is on a raised step, throttle will be held on that raised step. then you can turn the idle speed screw to get idle at about 1500-1800 rpm. Now when you start engine cold, choke will set the fast idle cam on that raised step- when engine starts and runs it should be running at your fast idle setting. That's how it supposed to work, you just have to get everything adjusted right. I hate carburetors, they never stay adjusted right. Considering their complexity and small mechanical parts, no wonder.

My 2001 dodge ram 1500 magnum v8 idle is off,how do i adjust it?


It's computer controlled, so it's not really adjustable.
You might be able to turn a screw for base idle.
If the idle speed is low it may be due to a dirty throttle body or a faulty idle air control valve.

Hard to start when cold. won't hold idle speed, just shuts down


make sure thortle body is clean, it also sounds like the idle air control valve is not working may need replacing, this is what hold the engine at idle,mostly when first started ,but also at other times when requested by computer to raise or lower the idle, hope this helps good luck.

Does a 2001 have a iat sensor?


Idle Air Control (IAC) Motor OPERATION The IAC motor is mounted to the throttle body and is operated by the engine controller. The throttle body has an air control passage that provides air for the engine at idle (when the throttle plate is closed). The IAC motor pintle protrudes into the air control passage and regulates air flow through it. Based on various sensor inputs, the engine controller adjusts engine idle speed by moving the IAC motor pintle in and out of the air control passage. The IAC motor is positioned when the ignition key is turned to the ON position.

OPERATION Found on V6, V8 and V10 engines, the intake manifold air temperature sensor is a variable, thermister type which reacts to temperature changes. In cold air, its resistance is high. As temperatures increase, its resistance decreases.

The sensor element itself extends into the intake manifold air stream to provide input voltage to the engine controller. This signal is used along with signals from other sensors by the engine controller to determine the fuel injector pulse width.

Engine dies at stop light.


The engine idle speed is not adjustable. You probably have a problem with the Idle Air Control Motor on the side of the throttle body.

Poor Idle on a dodge 2000 ram 318CID


I'd be more leaning toward IAT sensor in your intake manifold.(2 wires usually) It basically senses incoming air temperature & sends info to computer to adjust injector flow according to incoming air temperature conditions.
