1999 Dodge Ram 1500 all fixed. Here was the problem
I fixed the problem. It was the IAC (Idle Air Controller)
I'm sorry that the video is not more detailed but fixing it is not hard. A
few screws and a plug and some common sense on how it all comes apart and
is put back together.
I got a lot of emails and comments asking what the problem was so here is a
video pointing it out. I hope that it helps you.
Idle Air Control Valve (IAC) 2002 Dodge Dakota 3.9 Stalling
Stalling in low idle conditions, shifting from forward to reverse or from
park to drive, etc. is typically caused by the IAC. Replacing it is fairly
This is one of those conditions that the on board diagnostics (the engine
light) or an OBD reader does no usually detect (because it typically only
detects a complete failure condition and not intermittent problems)
1999 Dodge ram plenum repair
Fixing the plenum pan on my truck... its a common problem on 2nd gen dodge
rams. When the gasket blows it lets oil into the intake which gets sucked
into the cylinders... most trucks mine included were just re programed to
run diffrent instead of dodge fixing the plenum. After replacing my plenum
pan and intake gaskets, i have more power and it hasnt used any oil or
coolant in the past week.
99 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 with a bad crank sensor
Had a Dodge R1500, 5.2 come in, no start, when it did finally start it ran
rough. I back probed the crank sensor and noticed the signal dropping out
and the coil misfiring. After a while it smothed out, I found I could
duplicate the condition by wiggling the wires on the crank sensor.

Idles Rough, Changed Spark Plugs, Wires, Cap, Roder, and even a Fuel
Injector. But Still nothing.. Need some advice.. was thinking Bad Gas?
Jeep IAC idle Problem - Before and after cleaning the IAC Valve
This video shows the idle problem that came along this week. It started
with some revving on its own one day, in park when I put it from drive to
park. Then it began to get a rough idle. Not maintaining rpm when releasing
the throttle, and so on. The rpm would also be unsteady in park/neutral.
When putting it in drive/neutral the engine would stumble and drop to 0 rpm
just to wake up half a second later and maintaining normal idle.
What I did was take out the IAC valve and soak it with 5-56 (a solution in
Sweden similar to WD-40)
Then pushing in the pin and pulling it out several times. Drying it off,
scraping off all the black deposits and putting it back in. Then the Jeep
noticed a difference and I noticed a different throttle response. After
driving about 2 miles in 45mph, letting it sit over night. Starting it and
driving it in the following day was a dream. A completely different
smoother running engine and a very much more responsive throttle.
And of course, it keeps a steady idle now.

regulates the amount of air that flows around the closed throttle plate.
2014 Toyota Tundra takes on Ram 1500 & the Ike Gauntlet Towing Test ( Episode 4 )
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2014 Toyota Tundra Pickup is built to tow.
But is it better than the Ram 1500 We decided to find out by putting both
pickups up against each other in a Mega Mashup Sequel. Once again both
trucks tow the old Lincoln Continental Mark V Diamond in the Rough up one
of the steepest and highest American Highways. From Dillion, Colorado to
the Eisenhower Tunnel U.S. I-70 climbs 8 miles to a maximum elevation of
11,158 feet or 3,401 meters. That's enough elevation and grade to test the
most powerful of pickups. Is the Toyota Tundra up to the task of towing a
over 7,000 pounds up to the top of the tunnel?
In fact according to Toyota this pickup can tow up to 9,600 pounds. That's
enough weight to need a commercial truckers license in most states. In this
first TFLtruck Ike Gauntlet video review we test the truck up the Ike
Gauntlet see how fast it will tow around 7,200 pounds of old American
Luxury car plus people and gear 8 miles up a 7 percent grade to the
Eisenhower tunnel with the help of our friend Kent from (
