SOURCE: 2005 sentra idling high (1500rpms)

pull the IAC out and make sure that there is nothing blocking it from the throttle body from cleaning it. while you have it out go ahead and clean the IAC. the only way that I know to check it is pull it out and leave it plugged up to the connector turn the car on but dont start and see if the probe moves in or out.

SOURCE: 1996 dodge stratus high idle?

hi, the idle on a car can be changed by a couple of things... usualy the one that will cause high idle before anything else will be if there is a air leak lettting air into the intake anywhere after the airflow sensor, this is because the sensor cannot read the amount of air entering the engine so it cannot compensate... the easiest way to test this is first to lissen for hissing etc and if there is some noise you can spray a bit of 'easy start' in the general area and it will be sucked in with the air and the car will idle differently again.. be carefull with the easy start it can be dangerous with the engine running, a mechanic will usualy have a machine that senses air leaks

My car is idling too high it is a 2006 Dodge Stratus how do I fix it

Check to see if there is a vacuum leak from a disconnected/collapsed hose allowing unmetered air to enter the engine. If no vacuum leak present you may have an issue with the idle air control valve sticking or defective

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7 Engine. Starts fine, Idles fine, but when engine shifts into high gear and RPM lowers engine runs really rough under load

Have you checked for a broken valve spring. Repaired a dodge engine with the same running issue as you have described and it was a broken intake valve spring.

I have a 2005 dodge stratus,and the idle remains consistently high at between 1500 and 1600 rpm regardless of engine temperature,how do i correct this?

Could be a faulty temp sensor or pcm glitch. New engines now use timers to kickdown an idle after startup. You will have to put the vehicle on an analyzer.

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.
