SOURCE: 88 dodge dakota has rough idle and stalls at slow down.

Change/thoroughly clean the idle control solenoid. It may be sticking and causing rough idling.
Cleaning it is unlikely to be more than a short-term solution.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 89 dodge shadow. hard start. normal idle cold,

Hello,
The car may be hard to start because it may need a normal tune-up. If the spark plugs are pretty used, they will slowly stop burning as much fuel because the spark slowly gets lesser and lesser. On a cold day the fuel is harder to ignite with a small amount of spark.
Normal idle when its cold means that your cars idle is probably too high. If you lower the idle, the choke on a cold day will keep the idle a little higher until the motor warms and then it will kick back off. If the idle is too high, it will run very rich, smothering itself with fuel, and causing the idle to stay low. When the car warms, its creating better spark when its warm, and with the idle being too high its running at a fast idle.
The car wont start sometimes can be the cause of a few things. If the ground is bad on the fuel pump, it wont make a good connection sometimes for when you turn the key on, the fuel pump dont pump the fuel to the engine. Another one can be that your accessory switch can be loose going to the fuel pump. I think its your ground though. Good luck! Hope this helps.
Have a nice day. -Steve

1988 ford t-bird 302 why does it idle to fast when temp below 50


It's normally going to idle faster when cold, but you can change the idle speed down with a screwdriver at the throttle engine speed screw.

I have a 1988 mighty max that I bought with a rod knock. I have tore the bottom apart and replaced the cranck shaft and bearings ( main and rod) now that it is back together I am having idle trouble. cold...


I found this on another website on about adjusting the carb, not sure if this is the cause without knowing more information but give it a shot. should only take you about 10 minutes. "set the lever on the second highest step of the fast idle cam. measure the primary valve to throttle bore clearance, manual trans .031 inch automatic trans .035 inch, if its off, adjust it with the fast idle adjusting screw if you turn the screw clockwise the fast idle rpm increases,if you turn the screw counterclockwise the fast idle rpm decreases." You also may want to recheck the timing to make sure its exact.

1988 2.2 dodge omni, when started revs really high. What could be wrong?


If you are still using the carb engine check the idle up, there is the carb's version of a fast idle control. Some carbs would have a lever that pushes the throttle a little higher during start up. There is a screw there that you can adjust.

If it is an EFI engine, if you are experiencing very cold temperature, your car maybe compensating.

1988 handa accord


I have an 87 Accord with fuel injection that always had a fast idle, and a surging problem when warming up. Both problems went away when I replaced the fast idle valve, which is bolted to the rear of the intake manifold just downstream of the throttle body.
