The most common source of that problem is a sticking idle control motor. As a first step, purchase a new gasket and/or O-ring for the idle control motor. Remove the motor and clean it out using aerosol carburetor cleaner. If the idle control motor was sticking, that should cure it. It the fix only lasts temporarily, you need to replace the idle control motor. This is a common problem with vehicles with over 80,000 miles on them.

    It sits on top of the throttle body. It will have an electrical connector and wiring going to it.

start procedure is to hold accelerator half down, turn key, wait for injector light to go out, then hold down clutch pedal and start. do not pump the gas. just hold it 1/2 down. when car starts, release gas and then rev it up until the alternator light goes out.

2002 doge neon r/t cant find idle control motor


back side of the throttle body under air cleaner. but if you put a new one on. it will rase up at first the idle down after about a min. then take it down the road at 40 mph. should be OK then. don't forget to use carb cleaner on the port where you take it off from. good luck

I have same problem with 2002 laguna. Before warning lights and revving at 2000rpm starts car feels jumpy. Have to stop, take card out of slot and back again to start without fault. Happens a few miles drive later again. Anyone got a solution?
