Question type: Maintenance & Repair

On the engines first start of the day it is slow to take. but let it warm up it is ok
but still the fluctuating rpm. on 3 consecutive starts the third one the engine
will try to start as though you were punching the accelerator pedal quickly 3 or
4 times the rpm will rise to 1000 or better and fall and stop and some time run.

I fixed my problem.... I found a wire to my MAF sensor that had been chewed through by a rodent a 50 cent wire splice cured all my headaches after I spent a lot of $$$$ on parts. This truck will now last another 20 years....with luck. Dodgeem22
