Won't keep an idle when starting in cold weather

Asked by Nov 03, 2015 at 01:39 PM about the 2001 Dodge Durango

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2001 dodge durango, doesn't want to keep an idle during start in cold
weather, but once the weather warms up it fires right up so far. don't know
the cause. I've tried to rev up during start but it quickly dies, sounds like its
not getting any fuel. only happens in cold weather (that's the mystery) . No
check engine light, had to replace the starter because of constant starting
(it crapped out one day when I left the vehicle outside) . I've researched
and asked around and got alot of possibilities, I don't want to be chasing
(and replacing) parts and not fix the problem. Any similar cases? if so, what
was the fix? I am leaning towards the IAC.....? Please help...
