Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Im stumped on this.it neve done this til I changed the top water outlet and imno dummy
and have been under many hoods.i checked for vacum leak or electrical connection that
maybe I knocked off but I can find nothing.could a little water run down on a sensor or
something when I removed the hoses during the water outlet removal or is it just
coincidence

coincidence, we have a 2001 2.4l . I would start with the air filter,make sure nothing is living in it, change if needed. $10 , if not move onto the throttle body, have to take off air filter and hose leading up to it ,careful not to break sensor on hose, take cover off to expose throttle body, two bolts and there should be 1 screw to a clamp thru a access hole in cover. get that off and there's the throttle body. buy throttle body cleaner and a clean rag and spray and clean the crud out...it will need it. then onto the iac sensor (idle air control) $125 .should be good after that,if not go to spark plugs n wires,and clean packs. $20 wires,$ 5 x4 spark plugs. hope that helps.

Oit turned out the coil pack must have went bad at that time I Replaced it and it solved the prob
