Truck Starts but won't stay running

I can start my 2000 Dodge Dakota, but unless I keep my foot on the gas and keep it at about 1500 rmp it just dies. I have replaced the TPS some months ago, but this new problem just happened all of the sudden. Someone mentioned an Idle Control sensor?

    I have a 2000 dodge dakota quad v6 that recently started dieing. It would be hard to start and then when i would reverse or put in to drive would die. I thought maybe i got bad gas somewhere, so i ran the tank out and got a fuel treatment. That seemed to help it doesn't do it as much. But today while on my way to work i stopped at a stop sign to turn and it died! This happened 2 times...Any suggestions, It is really starting to get on my nerves..I have a 160, 000 miles on my truck...

If the battery voltage gets low the computer will lose its memory...the idle air control is not ure what to do.. drive the vehicle for a while ...you may have to 2 foot it but eventually it should idle

My 1998 dodge caravan won't stay running. starts up but shuts down instantantly or when i take my foot off the gas pedal,


ok i have a 1998 durango with the 5.2L 318 engine. had trouble with a bad cell in my battery. I went out bought an optima red top battery for it 800cca. put it in and had same trouble. No start without putting foot on gas. wouldn't stay running without holding foot on gas. CPU has to relearn it's programming once you unplug it for long periods of time. mine was without power for about 2-3 weeks till i got new battery. Start with this.. first check under air filter make sure a squirrel hasn't made a mess under your air filter and it's clogging the air intake. Then pull off the lid to your injector cover ( the screw down lid coming from the air box ( with air filter in it) to "carb") make sure all your cables move freely. put that all back together and close hood. Start truck with foot slightly on gas pedal to get started. keep it at about 1k to 1500 rpm for about 1-2 minutes. Rev motor to about 2500rpm and let it die out if it will. Get out lock doors with key fob if you have it. if not make sure to lock doors. ( trust me it worked for me) let sit for 5 minutes. come back out and unlock door and relock door 3 times with fob ( if you have it ) or key if you don't have a fob. Then unlock it with the key and enter vehicle. Start truck as before and keep it around 1k to 1500 rpm again for about 30 seconds rev it up and should keep running. Mine did. I think the iac was stuck from sitting and has now since loosened up.
Good luck hope ti works for you.

Stalls will not stay running after wormming up


Throttle position senser might be going bad. I had in the same problem in my truck. It wouldn't stay running unless I had my foot on the gas and as soon as I let off, it would die. Try it. The sensers are relatively cheap at Auto Zone or somewhere similar. Around 30 bucks.

Truck will not stay running without giving gas after a jump off


when the battery goes dead it looses its memory on engine settings like idle speed.. two things you can do first one is to clean the throttle bore with carb cleaner... the other is to start with foot on gas and slowly bring it back to idle... it will pick up the idle air position to keep itself running if you do it slowly... everything happens over time so as the throttle gets dirty the computer makes these adjustment on its own and when the battery dies it starts out basicly at different percentage of idle control tht it really needs because of the carbon buildup on the throttle plates

Replaced ctm unit and truck won`t stay running.


there are 2 sensor on the carb . you may need to replace both to find out whiche one it is . try this also give it gas while starting and when it starts you will have to keep your foot on the gas a little to keep it running if it runs that way its one of the 2 senors .
