Many things could cause this issue. First of all; is there a check engine light? If not then it is probably a fuel-delivery issue, not many parts in the fuel system are linked to the computer and in turn do not trip trouble codes. If there is a check engine light then your local autoparts store should be able to scan and then you can tell us more.

97 3.9 dakota when it's cold outside and I start my truck it'll start right up but idle down til it quits . Start it again and it will idle.. Go down the road and it misses bad until it warms up. After it...


Here are the most common causes of idle surge, rough idle esp when cold and 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.

2004, 6 cylinder outback, engine idle speed


We bought our H6 used under warranty and had the problem the day it was delivered. Brought it in to the dealer and the diagnosed it as the throttle position sensor. It is an electronic component that works in conjuction with the fuel delivery system and it is faulty, it cannot tell what position the gas pedal is in, and therefore is randomly picking power settings.
We had it replaced, and never a problem since.
There are other possibilites to your problem, and this was our solution.
Hope that helps.

Locate you computer (right front kick panel) and tap on it with a pen while the car idles... Also flex it back and forth with your hands to see if the car runs rough or quits... You may need a new one.
