Start by cleaning the throttle bore and plate with spray carb cleaner. use a toothbrush and rags to clean it out well. Then clean the IAC valve and its bore. lastly replace the PCV valve. use the rest of the carb cleaner to find any vacuum leaks at hoses and fittings. If problem is still there test or replace TPS.

Check your computer for trouble codes.

Surging while driving


Any check engine lights codes. I would check vacuum lines, intake gasket and plenum. Check your ignition coil. Throttle postion sensor maybe stuck. I would even clean the throttle body. May even be a speed sensor.

I have a 1999 dodge dakota, manual 5 speed, 5.2L V8, The problem I am having is the idle when standing still is about 1100-1200rpms. When driving and I depress the clutch or put in nuetral the rpm's...


The most common cause of high idle is an intake air leak. It will cause a lean condition to the O2 sensors and the PCM's solution is to increase the fuel mix resulting in faster idle. It can also cause a Check Engine Light if the idle remains too high for too long. Do a smoke test or soapy water test around the intake manifold and throttle body. If you detect any leaks, seal them and try again.

On starting, the 4.7 engine immediately revs to 2000 rpm; (this has not been the norm), then after three seconds begins to back off. The idle continually surges about 500 rpm, especially on a hot day after...


this is caused by the idle air control valve this handles the idle of the vehicle when first started and adjusts when the a/c is turned on, it is probably caked with carbon you can unbolt it from the throttle body and clean the tip of it and spring on it with carb cleaner also clean inside of the throttle body where it mounts and see if the fixes the problem might have to replace it. find the throttle body it will usually be a round cylinder mounted to the side with a plug in to bolts hold it on.

You could have a bad or contaminated Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor. You can get a used one online for less then 100. You can also purchase a can of MAF sensor cleaner at a local auto supplies store and clean it. It located right at the air filter housing.
