    My 97 avenger will not idle. It will only run if you step on the gas a little. There is also the smell of fuel coming out the exhaust.

If you press(and hold) the gas pedal down a little while stopped, does the car still die? if it doesn't die, your problem is the Idle Air Control motor. it located on the throttlebody.

No Bus 08 dodge,radio, start..disconnect its running again

Just bought a 2013 dodge avenger, literally yesterday. Test drove fine twice,, drove all over town for license and registration, multiple erands. No problems. I got to work and went to leave for lunch and was introduced to the no bus code. Left me stranded the very day i purchased it,, only 25000 miles. Is this problem simple enough to weather or is this the brightest red flag to take it back?
