Question about Dodge Stratus
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

it sounds like a broken wire in the engine wiring loom disconect the wires from the coil pack and and check for continuity from them to the engine controll module
