Hi, Well if you haven't gotten them in a while, it's probably time for new spark plugs. Also clean the fuel injectors with fuel injector cleaner. Found at the parts store or Walmart. Also you may need a new timing belt. As all of the symptoms you have together point to it. Hope this helps.
Happy New Year,

I have a 2004 Dodge Stratus (4cyl) that idles rough (almost stalls out), dies on start up and recently had a flashing engine light (backfire error). Any suggestions? No other issues, water pump and timing...

Could be the idle air control, once these start hanging up inside, they can cause as variety of problems with idle speed (can become wildly random) or simply a failure to idle at all.

These links should help:

This could also be caused by a failing ignition pack.

Uneven idle while running and in park but no check engine light

The idle air control motor is dirty. It's mounted on the throttle body. Clean the plunger and spring with brake clean, you clean use a soft wire brush or tooth brush. Also clean the hole it came out of. Wouldn't hurt to use the brush and clean as far as you can in the throttle body. It will take a second or two to start after you do this, Then run normal afterwards.

Trooper refuse to start unless primed by petrol and idles unevenly thereafter

Check glow plugs and valve clearances, both of these will cause bad cold starting, but once hot will start fine

Hard starting, engine wild, uneven engine idle

Hi and welcome to FIxYa!

If the engine is acting wild and experiencing a rough idle then the problem will be on the MAF sensor. If the MAF is faulty the engine acts unusual so I strongly suggest a MAF sensor replacement.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Car has in a fuel injected 1500 cc engine ,hard to start and uneven idle usually jump from 1500 to 3000 rpms when it should be idling

You probably have a bad Idle Air Control Valve (IACV). If it does not control the idle correctly , you can find yourself driving 50 MPH with out touching the gas pedal. The IACV is located on the throttle control valve and is typically held on by two or three small screws. The price for an IACV can run from $25 to $500. I purchased a throttle body for $40 , removed the IACV, and saved $400.

Car idles and runs rough intermittently after engne is warm.

it could be plugs and or high tention leads, causing missfire best way to check these is better at night open the hood of the car, run engine and see if you are getting a loose spark, that will be your high tention leads it could also be that when they get hot, they expand and start reducing the power of the spark to the plugs if you find that these will need replacing, to test spark plugs, get a pair of pliers and preff a pair of rubber gloves, pull the leads off each plug one at a time, if there is no change on one you pull of, that plug needs replacing, continue till you have checked all of them, hope this helps
