Question about 2005 Dodge Stratus
My engine light came on and the scan read the the ECM has detected the IAC counts are higher/lower than expected. The engine speed is not in the expected range. Probable causes: vacuum leak on engine, dirty throttle body, IAC motor defective, poor electrical connection to the IAC valve. What does this mean? Is it okay to drive the car until I can get it to a repair shop or will I burn out my engine?
If you notice idle getting too low, or car stalling on turns, or when AC /heater is on etc, (engine under load) then yes, probably IAC motor is defective, or dirt in the seat area of it. Only thing to be aware of, is it might stall when off the gas, so be careful when turning, and/or stopping. Have it looked at first chance, but it shouldn't hurt vehicle, just be cautious driving when you let off the gas, it could stall.
