Check for a vacuum leak on the hoses and intake manifold. Check the mounting bolts for the throttle body on truck for looseness. Take some spray injector cleaner and spray inside the throttle body to remove any build-up inside. If everything is good then remove the IAC (idle air control valve from the backside of throttle body) to check for carbon bild up and possible faulty valve.Once removed if the little pintle is sticking out more than 1 in. then replace valve. Hope this will help.

5.9 Lt 2001 dodge durango has 20 percent compression on cylinder 7, ran really luggish and engine shakes alot, was told could drive on 7 out of 8 cylinders after a couple weeks of driving it, i started it...


it sounds to me that #7 has a valve train problem, wiped cam to broken rocker arm,bent pushrod,broken spring,bent valve or burnt bad! Or it has broken ring on piston. shouldnt have kept driving,very bad idea. pull valve cover to check valve train. I would start there before going deeper into motor.

Starts and dies unless I rev it up then it will Idle


The battery might be low but I doubt it is causing the "no idle" problem.
You should have an idle air control valve that the computer uses to adjust idle speed. That valve could be faulty or dirty.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

My 1981 dodge p/u sits a sputters after it warms up you give a little gas it does it give it more gas it smooths out has a slant 6 one barl carb what do you thim=nk it may be i changed the fuel filter...


Try adjusting the idle/air screw on the carb. With the engine off, turn the screw gently to the right until it bottoms out. Don't screw to tight, it will ruin the seat. Turn it out 2 full turns and start the car. After revving the engine a couple of times,let it settle down to an idle. after it warms up, screw it in or out until you get the highest idle speed. If that doesn't do it, you will need to rebuild the carb.

your idle air control valve is gummed up. Remove and clean with spray carb cleaner and also clean the bore it came out of.

Starts but won't idle


sounds like lost compression maybe, does it run rough when it's on? does it stay on when you give it gas? does it just die or does it sorta choke clunk clunk sputter and die? some more information on the nature of the problem would be very much appreciated.

Truck will not stay running without giving gas after a jump off


when the battery goes dead it looses its memory on engine settings like idle speed.. two things you can do first one is to clean the throttle bore with carb cleaner... the other is to start with foot on gas and slowly bring it back to idle... it will pick up the idle air position to keep itself running if you do it slowly... everything happens over time so as the throttle gets dirty the computer makes these adjustment on its own and when the battery dies it starts out basicly at different percentage of idle control tht it really needs because of the carbon buildup on the throttle plates
