Check to see if there is a vacuum leak from a disconnected/collapsed hose allowing unmetered air to enter the engine. If no vacuum leak present you may have an issue with the idle air control valve sticking or defective

The idle speed on my '98 dodge stratus is extremely high. Please , tell me how can I lower its speed.Thank you.

That points to a damaged IDLE SPEED CONTROL or "AIS"...

Sometimes it gets fixed by removing and cleaning with carburetor solvent. Check electrical connector first. A large vacuum leak can be the problem too. Amclaussen.

CEL came on for the car, says it is idleing too high/low. After I just put on a cold air intake. Cleared code and the CEL came back on the next day. Anyway I can turn the idle down manually?

There is no way for you to turn the idle down manually, it is all computer controlled. Do not adjust any screws on the throttle body, they are set from the factory. The only way you may be able to fix your idle problem with out getting rid of your cold air intake and replacing it with the factory is by removing both the positive and negative leads on the battery and holding them together for about 5 min while disconnected. This will reset the cars computer and may compensate for the intake. If this does not help you will need to remove the after market intake and put back in the stock one.

I think I'm having an issue with the thermostat in my 2006 Dodge Stratus. It started running warmer than usual all of a sudden yesterday. I have had the oil changed and the fluids checked, the fans are...

Check the vacuum hoses

Check the egr system. Without proper mixture of carbon monoxide. It could be running hot . Your car would have a high idle because its getting air to feed the fire instead of the non burnable carbon monoxide.This would raise the temp too.

The heater in my 2004 dodge stratus doesn't blow out hot air while idling, but it does when driving. Could this be the thermostat?

Most of the time this (no heat at idle/heat when driving) is an indication of low radiator fluid. Check the fluid level while the engine is cold and on with the heater on high.
