this year wasnt equipped with egr, and doesnt have a fuel filter either. its in the tank on the fuel pump. also if it was an 02 sensor it probably would throw a code so the next thing to do.... ill help ya with this one if ya havent figured it out yet. lol

Look inside the throttle body. is it dirty? covered in carbon?. if so clean it out and if thats dirty that also means your Idle air control valve is the same way. when those get like that they tend to stick or not let enough air through at idle when their gunked up.

Try that if u havent done it and see what happens!

Default Do I have a IAC Problem??

Looking at other posts in this forum it looks like I might have an issue with my IAC ( Idle Air Control ) on my 1999 Durango 5.9

Is there some way to check the IAC? I have no codes showing, but that computer is cranky to say the least.. I've gone to the auto shop with the check engine light on and they can pull no codes.. also my break light comes on and stays on most times, even when the break is not active.

currently I have a real hard idle at low speeds, but if I get up over 2K RPM the engine smothes out. I cannot find any vacum leaks, and the plugs are new platnums (3 moths old) that I just pulled and checked. All are still great.
