On similar older dodge vehicles I've seen the idle air control to be a problem. The idle air control is on the side, or the bottom of the throttle body. But first, take the intake tube off the throttle body and clean the butterfly plate with carb cleaner. DO NOT SPRAY IN THE THROTTLE BODY! Spray on an old rag/t-shirt scrap etc. and wipe out the throttle body. Hold it open with your finger and try to get the areas that the plate touches when closed. If cleaning the throttle body does not help, then look at the idle air control. Wes

Also, get the battery checked. Older chrysler products dont run well with a low voltage battery
