Default Idling issue in Park/N

Hello.

Me again, with another question.

Lately, when I start the truck and its either in P or N, the idle will varry from 650ish to 1200ish then back to 650, then back up to 1200.. Almost like someone is feathering the gas pedal.

Any thoughts? If this was my Mustang, I would say IAC (Idle Air Control Valve), but I dont even know if the Ram has one.

Yes, your truck has an IAC. I would suggest you start with the easy and obvious things like cleaning the throttle body and IAC.

If cleaning the iac and throttle body don't work I would check the throttle position sensor, I've heard of them doing things like that when the go out.
