Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Dodge Dakota that idles rough at start up and when I stop and when I first
give it a little gas to go forward. The rough idle happens in Park and Drive. Is the idle too
low or is there another problem?

If you have the owner's manual and either a Chilton's or Haynes repair manual for your Dakota it will give you the idle speed. When I had my '93 V6, it idled at about 750 - 800 rpm, my '02 with a V8 idles at about 900. Also, if you set the idle at, say 800, and you still have problems, you may need to look at the Idle Air Control Valve as the problem. But before you do that, run some carb cleaner through the throttle body to clean it out. Hope this give you a place to start. /r Martin
