Question type: Maintenance & Repair

distributor also the spark plugs and wires and the
idle air flow sensor and it still will not hold idle you

when else do I need to try

I've run into the passage that air flowing from IAC into the throttle body gets clogged up. I take a can of throttle body cleaner with the long nozzle and spray it directly into the passage. You might be able to keep it running by working the throttle. I've done it at least once on every magnum motor I've had and I've had v6, both v8, and a v10.
