When at steady speed then picks up and goes good like it gets a burst of fuel fad runs right but then it will keep doing it


Clean the inside of the throttle body with throttle body cleaner and a clean lint free cloth. Check or have checked the TPS Throttle Position Sensor as it can cause idle and stumble issues.

97 3.9 dakota when it's cold outside and I start my truck it'll start right up but idle down til it quits . Start it again and it will idle.. Go down the road and it misses bad until it warms up. After it...


Here are the most common causes of idle surge, rough idle esp when cold and 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.

Just replaced starter on my car but now its idling rough and running rough sputtering


Try cleaning the throttle body open the throttle all the way and use a tooth brush with carb cleaner clean it good then wipe it out with a clean rag. Start the car might have to give it some gas keep it running if it wants to stall then let it idle on its own for about 5-10 minutes this will relearn the base idle.

1994 camry 4cyl. was running great. drove it to work and shut it off, then went to start it back up and it shut right off, wont idle. I can keep it running by keeping my foot on gas and its not running...


have your idle control switch check, easy and inexpensive to replace. The idle control switch is what keep the engine stay idle. also have your throttle body clean by a professional having that many miles, it will give you better gas mileage.

Hard start, rough idle, some black smoke, engine service light on


A scan for trouble codes may point you in the right direction quickly, rather than hit & miss, with replacing parts. Some of the autoparts stores will scan for free, and your right where you need to be to get the right part at the same time.
