wont hold idel

Asked by Feb 29, 2016 at 08:35 PM about the 1999 Dodge Durango 4 Dr SLT 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 99 Dodge Durango we just changed the
distributor also the spark plugs and wires and the
idle air flow sensor and it still will not hold idle you
crank it up it runs for like 10 seconds and then dies
when else do I need to try

1 Answer

70

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.
