I had the same prob in a 90 Caravan when rats got up into the dash and chewed on some wires... the van started and ran as long as gas pedel was pushed down... Im not saying that rats chewed your wires but it might just be some of the wires that's under the dash are getting old like and falling apart on you...
have ur idle control motor checked if sounds like its not functioning its (aka) ICM
Its located in the gas tank.
you hump it you cut it
Your fuel pump will be inside the gas tank.
dodge is known if you run them out of gas you burn out the fuel pump and its in the gas tank
Hi, The battery has enough power to turn the starter, but not enough to run the computer. You can test it this way. As you try to start the engine, give it a little gas to keep the engine running above idle. If it runs above idle then dies at idle it is the battery. I have had this happen twice in the 10 years with my 2000 Durango.
# It inside the gas tank you got to drop the tank to get to it
Turn a couple screws on the carberator; set up the "idle".
you are an idiot. put gas in it.
You could have air bubbles in your gas line.
I recently changed the E.G.R. valve on my 1990 Dodge Spirit 2.5L (non-turbo). Now it is quiet @ idle & starts right up. I also notice an improvement in the gas mileage. Good Luck.
Try adding some gas...
because all vehicles have an idle. Without an idle your car would not stay running.
well first its a dodge dynasty and its about $150 to $200 if its in the tank. but you'd be better off to just go buy another car.
rough idle smell gas
Add fuel, and crank.
First put more gas in to be sure it is up to the fuel pump pickup. If it still doesn't start, look at other causes like bad fuel pump etc. You spray carb cleaner in the throttle body.
hi I have. A 1988 samurai and when I start it up it will not idle up at all I have to give it gas to idle up wondering if there's something I can do.
Check the throttle position sensor or the idle control motor
It could be the idle control P1507
Its probably the float in the gas tank that tells how much fuel is left in the tank... its sticking.
The Dodge Stratus might not start because the battery is dead or the starter is worn or damaged. It might not start because it is out of gas or because the fuel line has water or air in it.
IAC its the same as the fast idle on a carb, its how comp controls cold starts **When this happened on my 1999 Dodge Durango it was a simple fix. Replace the Throttle Body Sensor. It is about 50$ at most auto retail stores.
EGR Valve stuck open
