SOURCE: Where is Idle control valve located and how do you

Idle air control valve only controls air into the engine while idling. If your vehicle is running rough and skips, its misfiring. Make sure that the new plugs are properly gapped and timing is set right on the distributor side, intake hose isnt leaking. Re-inspect the sparkplugs for fouling (black, burnt, brown etc). if ok, have the computer scanned for the error at autozone (free). Post the code online...hopefully this helpd

3.1 1993 lumina starts fine as it warms up it starts skipping and then cuts off. stalls and will not crank until it cools off

Unplug the temperature sensor and see what happens. If no change then the temp sensor plug maybe plugged somewhere it should not be. Sometimes it isb possible there are missmatched sensor connectors.

Dodge caravan dead

It kind of sounds like a distributor that has twisted in the hole. But many of these Dodge engines no longer have distributors.

If you do have one though, check the timing.

If no distributor, but you do have a timing belt, check to see if it has skipped a few teeth.

Check the compression. If the camshaft (if only one) or one of the camshafts (if more than one) has slipped, there will be quite a shift in compression from the specification.

Engine skipping/misfiring, engine light flashing

Drive it into a dark place, or wait till dark. When it's running poorly, see if you can see any spark flying around. It sounds like plug wires.
