Try turning your key on then off then on and then off and then leaving have the same truck when you do that key sequence under the odometer it should give you a code or a messagewrite it down and go from there. Always try this before jumping to conclusions about actually spending any time or money.

Code p0113 is for the intake air temp sensor. It probably did not get plugged in during the egnine replacement. That will not cuase it not to idle. I need more information for that concern.

SOURCE: I want to clean the throttle body on my 2005 dodge

To clean the throttle body disconnect the air tube running form the air box to throttle body and use Carbon cleaner. Read direction on can. Also clean EGR valve since this does control idle if it is carbon up it will cause the small valve on the inside to stick open causing rough idle and or stalling out at idle use the same cleaner.

SOURCE: dashboard light

The answer will be in the owner's manual for sure. But it probably is low alternator output voltage.

SOURCE: Wife's durango is idling rough and running rough

With both codes pointing at TP sensor, I'd certainly take the time to replace it, as well as make sure connections to it are clean, and good. Chances are, you won't be able to take part back anyway. As far as exhaust goes, if it's leaking in the right places in may cause improper readings at sensors downstream, but if not obvious leak, I wouldn't be concentrating in that area right now.

What does it mean when the warning light comes on that looks like a lightning bolt between two lines


That light is the Electronic Throttle Control Light or ETC Light. When this light is on it is warning you that there is a potential concern with the throttle control. It is best to get the vehicle to an Authorized Dealer at your earliest convenience. However if the light is on and flashing you may experience a racing/rough idle or engine stalling and your vehicle may require a tow. In this case get your vehicle to an Authorized Dealer right away.

Had a question bout my mazda rx8 I was driving it one night it was running fine the next day went out and it won't turn over it takes awhile bit it finally starts and idles real rough and you give it...


Too many possibilities

Won't turn over is one problem -battery,cables,grounds,
starter,solenoid,etc

Idles rough-- vacuum leaks,spark plugs never replaced,
egr valve etc

Worn O2 Sensors
Dirty MAF Sensor
Old Fuel Filter

You have to go into a lot of technical detail & history
on your vehicle, for us to even guess.
