Idle air control valve is a common problem Might check that first. Is it throughing a check engine light? with that I can help you further.

could be that the electronic throttle could be icing up. just remove the air cleaner and have someone cycle the key. the throttlebody will cycle prior to starting to do a self check. chrysler has a tsb out for this concern. tsb # 14-002-05

I just worked on this problem a couple of days ago. If the motor is a 3.0 liter. The idle control valve is located at the bottom of the throttlebody assembly right below the bore for the throttle butterflies..What usually causes this valve to go bad is the mechanical part of the sensor sticks as it becomes sludged or carboned up. Manufacturer claims that the valve cannot be cleaned and should only be replaced....It's a high dollar repair to replace this sensor as your engine coolant flows through this electrical valve. The valve idles the car fast when cold, as the antifreeze gets hot the valve drops the idle down.....I have successfully cleaned several of these valves and cured the dying problems...
First remove the air filter top cover and the tubes that connect to the throttlebody. In the right throttlebody you will see a port right before the butterfly. Under the throttlebody you have a black plastic sensor with a 2 wire terminal. Remove the 2 phillps screws and pull off the electrical part of the valve. you will feel a magnetic pull while removing. Remove slowly and catch the black sealing oring, and there will be a metal washer also.. The shaft that is exposed is the mechanical control of the valve. Rotate the shaft and it should feel sticky if bad..Using a throttlebody spray cleaner spray into the small square port of the right bore, rotate shaft and spray until stickfree.....Reassemble

check idle speed control make your throttle valves not stuck.check for vacuum leak around the throttle body area look for broke gasket.

Hi, its time for a ring set job in this vehicle. the blue smoke is a sign of major oil consumption due to bad piston rings. you also have faulty valve seals as well. this is deep engine repair and it will be costly.
If you cant do this job soon, be sure to watch the oil consumption by checking the level regularly and, monitor the oil pressure as well.
