This may be one of two things, a bad coolant temp sensor or the common problem being the idle control motor on the side of the throtlebody,make sure to reprogram the new one, it will have direction to do so,

1997 dodge dekota sport,stalls out,wont stsy running


Concerning the 1997 Dakota: I had the same problem. After a little checking and research I believed it to be the IAC (Idle Air Control Valve). I replaced it and it started right up and idled perfectly. It never stalled again. The IAC is located on the backside of the throttle body and is easy to get to and change out. Hope this helps.

2001 dodge dakota sport with 2.5 engine idles high when I start it up, continues idling high, when pushing clutch in to change gears it idles extremely high


Does it do it if you disconnect the idle air control valve ?
You need to know if its a vac leak or if the computer is making the valve open too far.

1997 dodge dakota stopped running while driving now it wont start


My first suspicion would be a crankshaft sensor. They commonly fail and will cause the condition you indicate. The next most likely candidate is a faulty fuel pump, but they rarely fail during operation. They normally fail by just not working one day.

It may not be the battery at all. Have a mechanic check the Throttle Position Sensor, the Idle Air Control Valve and the Manifold Air Pressure Sensor to see if any need replacement. If faulty, any of these can cause erratic idling and stalling. Good luck!

1997 dakota idle


On back side of throttle body you will find a air idle control it will have torx bolts and an electrical plug remove it and clean it with carb cleaner it will solve your problem.
