Sounds like your idle air control valve is bad. This valve, like it sounds, controls the idle on your vehicle and from what you make it sound like you are having idle issues. The IAC is located on your throttle body and is pretty easy to change out. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Dodge drango 2000 will not idle in cold weather until warmed-up


I would test, or replace my IAT sensor . (Intake air temperature sensor)
If it's defective, it will send wrong signal, thus wrong mixture for cold engine.

I have a 1997 dodge avenger es 2.5 liter here's


Check the vacuum line on the fuel pressure regulator for any sign of gas being sucked into the line. A failed regulator will let extra gas get into the engine. If it's okay, have the fuel pressure checked. That's sure a lot of gas, way too much for the engine. Good luck.

1997 dodge avenger engine problems V6 2.5


Check your EGR valve. It may be stuck open. I had a similar problem 2 years ago on my 97 avenger w/ 2.5L V6. Engine idled rough and would die when I stopped at a stop sign unless I feathered the gas pedal as I coasted to a stop. Replaced EGR valve, problem solved.
