Question about 2000 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab

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 Club Cab...1st started the dealer stated the problem was the battery, replaced it..rand good for a few months. Terminals became corroded started doing the same...cleaned the battery terminals very good...was fine for a few months. Have recently started the same, battery and alt. tested good. Replaced cable ends and did good for 2 weeks..started messing again, cleaned terminal ends, continue same problem...will start but will not idle. will get a new battery today and hopefully this will solve the problem.

    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

It starts but will not idle. if you take your foot off the gas it dies. sometimes it will run good and i take it around the block it will die when i come to a stop unless i put it in neutral and keep my...


Possible areas of concern are:
  • faulty MAF (Mass Air Flo) sensor
  • bad EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculator
  • bad TPS
It's most likely a combination of the 3 but the main cause would normally be the TPS (Throttle Positioning Sensor) which regulates engine idle speeds under different conditions.

I say dont accept vehicle back form the dealer, till its right. Sounds as though the throttle position sensor orMAS is bad. The dealer really should be able to fix it.

first take "seafoam" intake cleaner and clean your throttle body with an old toothbrush and a rag. you can get this at your local auto parts store. this should help if not cure it. the next step is to replace the idle air motor.
