1994 dodge ram check engine light- wont idle sometimes
 
I have a 1994 Dodge ram 1500 318 automatic with 160,000. The check engine light has come on. and will not idle sometimes.. I replace the idle air control valve about 3 months ago when is was acting up up before the the engine light was never on then.. Now this problem has emerged.truck runs fine as long as your foot is on the gas...Could my idle are control valve be junk again? if i checked the code right it is telling me the idle air control motor circuit is one of the codes but couldnt imagine it being bad already..need any help i can get. thanks

could of been faulty. but it could be anything, try tapping on the mas air flow sensor with a wrench. sounds odd but sometimes thats all it takes.

the second generation ram doesnt have mass air flow sensors, the only thing controlling the idle is that valve and if you have to make it idle with the gas pedal then its probably bad id try replacing it again. i dont know of anything else that would make it not idle unless it was running really bad.

Did you buy OEM? 99% of aftermarket parts are not up to par and will go bad fairly quick.

Could also be a PCM or wiring issue.

engine controllers memory may need to be reset with a dealer scan tool.

Or just disconnect the battery for a few minutes, touch the two leads together, then reconnect. Also, make sure that intake plenum gasket isn't leaking.
