Check the linkage for loose connection.

Check carpet or anything that can keep idle incorrectly.

====
When engine is cold,use 1/2 can of carburetor to clean out the interior.
====
Check your service record for the last catalytic converter replacement

If you has your last smog check report handy then look for the Nox reading. If it's on the high side then your catalytic may need replacement.
====
Take a long drive (high rpm if possible) to clear out the carbon on the cylinder heads.

Dodge ram dies reverse


You may have a vacuum leak, which is more apparent when you lean on the brake pedal hard. It won't be easy to find vacuum leak, but a can of WD40 sprayed around suspected areas could find leak when idle changes.

I have a 1995 C280 Mercedes Benz when in park or neutral idles real low as it is about to die then idles back up to 1000 rpm and continue to do the same. usually stays running though. In drive or reverse...


Not a Mercedes man but if it was a domestic I would say check the readings on the Throttle position sensor first. it should not change unless the throttle is physically moved. after that check the Idle air control valve motor. Hopes this helps. if it was a fuel issue should do it in gear at idle also.

Car will not start in park, but will start in neutrel. Car will die as soon as you put it in reverse.


have your neutral safety switch checked or adjusted. if engine dies as soon as it is shifted to reverse, does it so the same when you shift it to drive? if on reverse only, idle is set too low.
