Is a TPS on a 2000 Dodge neon self adjustable?

I own a 2000 neon and recently changed the TPS and IAC sensors. Seems at a stop light it idles to low as if it wants to shut off. Car doesn't overheat but doesn't blow hot air neither. The rear window doesn't defrost as well so basically wondering if all any of these symptoms have to do each or one being bad..

My 85 gl wagon won't idle


It seems like idle is too low. There should be a screw to turn and adjust idle speed.

Description & Operation

Not for Dodge Stratus Sedan
The idle air control motor (IAC) attaches to the throttle body. It is an electric stepper motor. The PCM adjusts engine idle speed through the idle air control motor to compensate for engine load, coolant temperature or barometric pressure changes. The throttle body has an air bypass passage that provides air for the engine during closed throttle idle. The idle air control motor pintle protrudes into the air bypass passage and regulates airflow through it.
The PCM adjusts engine idle speed by moving the IAC motor pintle in and out of the bypass passage. The adjustments are based on inputs the PCM receives. The inputs are from the throttle position sensor, crankshaft position sensor, coolant temperature sensor, MAP sensor, vehicle speed sensor and various switch operations (brake, park/neutral, air conditioning).

When engine rpm is above idle speed, the IAC is used for the following functions:


Off-idle dashpot Deceleration air flow control A/C compressor load control (also opens the passage slightly before the compressor is engaged so that the engine rpm does not dip down when the compressor engages)

I have a 2000 dodge neon that keeps idleing funny, I replaced the IACV and the TPS..and it still idles High then low then high ..I dont know what else to do. what could it be


First, does this funny idle happen when the AC is on? If so, try running the engine with the AC off and see if the problen is still there. If the problem is still there, you might need an upper cylinder decarb, if it's a high mileage car. When you replaced the IAC motor, did you notice carbon build up in the air passages? You really need this car hooked up to a monitor to see what's going on with all the sensors, you could throw hundreds of dollars at this car with a hit or miss, a good Mechanic with a monitor will pinpoint the problem for a small fee and you can replace the right part yourself, then happy driving, good luck, Gary

96 Neon idles a little too low it shuts off


This sound as if it may be the IAC or idle air control valve which is located just behind where the air intake hose attaches to the throttle body. This is a switch that tells the computer how fast the car should idle and adjust the air intake to keep the idle steady. If you go to one of the car part websites you can look up the IAC and see what it looks like for your particular vehicle. Autozone, Checker, Oreiley all have websites.

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.

Loses the power and starts stalling


The IAC valve requires resetting .
First locate the IAC valve located on the side of the throttle body and has 4 wires going to it .Procedure is as follows
Ignition key on ,unplug the IAC ,turn key off ,reconnect the IAC .do this 3-4 times .restart the car and hold the rpm at 2000 rpm and slowly lower until it idles by it self .
