Question about 1998 Dodge Dakota
I replaced the ect sensor than I ran it and it started running worse with a very poor idle, I sprayed some air intake spray and it it seems to be a 95% better, i checked the computer codes and came up with a lean code and #1 cylinder misfire, cleared the computer and now I am running it to see if any codes come up. The exhaust still smells lean/rich but not as bad, also the truck always started without any hesistation until now it takes 2 turns. Thank You Guill, I will keep you posted

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, rough idle esp when cold, other symptoms include stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
