I'm assuming this truck has Power Steering. (my 2000 Dodge Dakota does) Because the power steering pump is causing a strain on the engine when you turn the steering wheel and it is also being strained by putting the truck in 4 wheel drive, A simple tune up might be in order. By tune up I mean spark plugs, spark plug wires, air cleaner, Distributor cap and rotor button. I would also check the timing on the engine and if possible change the fuel filter (The fuel filter is a real bear on this truck because it is in the fuel tank along with the fuel pump and sending unit)

Just had that problem w/ my 01 Dekota, it was the resistor that used to be mounted on the firewall and easy to get to but that is now mounted low on the back of the engine jammed into a bey tight position. I couldn't get to it myself, so ended up taking it to neighborhood garage. Cost me about $150

SOURCE: Battery chaged and car DOES NOT idle

when u disconnected the battery u lost the adaptive idle learn program, do the following to clean the intake and allow normal idle

Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

1997 dodge dekota sport,stalls out,wont stsy running


Concerning the 1997 Dakota: I had the same problem. After a little checking and research I believed it to be the IAC (Idle Air Control Valve). I replaced it and it started right up and idled perfectly. It never stalled again. The IAC is located on the backside of the throttle body and is easy to get to and change out. Hope this helps.

2001 dodge dakota sport with 2.5 engine idles high when I start it up, continues idling high, when pushing clutch in to change gears it idles extremely high


Does it do it if you disconnect the idle air control valve ?
You need to know if its a vac leak or if the computer is making the valve open too far.

2001 dodge dakota sport dies when idleing when coming to a stop


Have you tried cleaning A.I.S. motor on side of throttle body with throttlebody cleaner? 2 or 3 torx screws normally holding it on . Remove it, clean pintle (pointed end) and shaft with cleaner, and re-install and try that. if it cures it for a while, then does it again, replace it. Be sure to spray well inside port that pintle is inserted in to clean that surface as well. ( A.I.S. = Automatic Idle Speed ) Adjusts idle as required under load conditions such as turning wheel, heater/Ac on, brakes applied etc, to step up idle to eliminate stalling.)

Hi, my1997 dakota with a 3.9 engine has a rough idle, has plenty of power i replaced plugs, wires, cap,pcv, rotor and added fuel cleaner. its a little better but still has a rough idle


My uncle worked at a dodge dealership as a head mechanic for over 30 years and he also found all of the 3.9 liter engines to have the rough idle. The rough idle cannot be explained but it can be made worse by buildup on the engine. I have a 2001 Dakota sport with the 3.9 and mine does it too and one of the first times i drove it it stalled and its not a Manuel transmission. But onc I changed the oil and put Lucas oil additive as well as regular additives to my gas every month or so it has reduced greatly and not stalled since. Hopefully you find this helpful.

Im trying to find out where i have an air leak in my dodge dakota sport. my truck is running very poorly.


Spray carb cleaner on all the spots idle will change when you hit the leak. Don't soak the whole engine at once and try to start a fire. Let it dry and move to another area

2001 dodge dakota will not start


Sounds like a bad battery, or bad/loose connection there. After the battery is replaced, or disconnected, it will need a little bit to relearn how to idle.
