Ok it is one of two things causing your problem. It is either your IAC (idle air control vavle) or your MAF (mass air flow sensor). I would lean towards your IAC but you can actually clean both of these with some throttle body cleaner. The IAC is located on the throttle body and is held on with a couple of screws. The MAF is located in the air duct tube running from the air filter to the throttle body. It is normally some sort of square devise that is hooked up to something electrical in the air duct tube. I would start with the IAC, clean it up. If the car runs better, I would actually suggest replacing it. If that doesn't fix it up, clean your MAF, but you shouldn't have to replace that. If for some reason neither one of these fix it for you please let me know and we will work out way down the line to some more difficult things. Again, let me know if you have any further questions and thanks for using FixYa!

    I posted above where they are located. Did you see this? What make/model is the truck and I will give you a picture of what you are looking for. The IAC is located on the throttle body and the MAF is located in the air duct tube that runs from the air filter box to the throttle body. Let me know the make and model and I will get you those pictures.

When the battery in the key stops working what can happen?

Sounds as if the van lost that code for the PATS(Passive Anti-Theft System) key. You will have to have it programmed again. Some well equipped key and lock shops may be able to do this, otherwise off to the dealer.

I have 2004 dodge neon sxt that just died when driving it now when i start it start and die 30 seconds later right after that i try to start it again it sound like it wants to start but wont i took it to...

it could be the computer although my experience has been that the computer would not let the car start at all. It almost sounds like the fuel pump dopping out after a short run. Have they checked the pump? You really should do a pressure check to see if the pump is dropping as soon as it gets pressure built up. If this helps please reply and good luck
