Check your plugs, you may need to get Hotter rated plugs for your RAM. What is the Mileage? Use an OBD II reader to get the check engine code, or go to an autozone or advance auto to get them to scan it for your for free.

Get a computer scan for trouble codes to see if that points you towards the problem. Possibly an engine sensor is not working right till it is warmed up. You might also check the idle air control for proper operation when cold.

Rough idle on a 2000 echo when warm no check engine light


If it is an ignition miss, it should turn the check engine light on and give you a code for which cylinder.
A fuel problem or mechanical problem would not always make the warning light come on. Once the engine warms up the O2 sensor gives the computer data to cut back on fuel.
You might want to check the computer for trouble codes to see if anything has been stored.

My 89 honda accord oil light comes on when engine is warmed up and stays on and idles high


Could be more than one problem.
The oil light staying on when the engine is warmed up could be a problem with the oil pump or engine bearings.
Its possible the switch for the light is faulty.
You can replace the switch or have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge at a shop.
The high idle could be several things, but I would be more concerned with the oil light.

2002 Jeep Liberty - 3.7 Liter - Engine has begun to die when rpm is at or near idle. Such as pulling into a parking place or stopped at traffic light. More frequent after engine has warmed. Once engine...


I would start with cleaning the throttle bore and plate. Then clean the Idle Air Control valve, IAC, as this is the device that controls idle speed. Use a can of spray carb cleaner and an old toothbrush. Trouble with the IAC would make sense if you can keep the engine going by holding down the gas pedal a bit.
Use the carb cleaner to check for vacuum leaks at hose connections and elbows. run engine and spray short bursts at hoses and listen for idle speed changes.
And lastly if problem is still there check MAP sensor.

Motor revs up & down, engine light on. Runs better when warmed up


That does not seem to be your problem.Its likly that your air flow meter has the fault.Change that before you do any thing else.
