04 stratus sxt will not idle
It sounds like your IAC, ( Idle Air Control Valve), is not properly controlling the Idle speed of your engine. Try removing the IAC Valve and clean the pintle of carbon build-up. The ECM (Engine Control Module), cannot properly adjust engine Idle if the valve tip has excessive carbon build up on it. If you clean the pintle make sure the tip is less than an inch and an eighth, (1 1/8) from the shoulder to the pintle tip. This is to prevent damage when re-installing it. Retract the spring and spin the pintle inward to set the depth. If this does not work replace the Idle Air Control Valve. Hope this helps.
