Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
i have a 2002 dodge dakota with 118xxx miles, there is no check engine light. but it will drop down to 500rpm and sometimes stall out. i have replaced the tps but no luck, if i reset the computer then it runs fine for about 200 miles then starts acting up again. any ideas?

You can try cleaning the throttle body of your 2002 Dodge Dakota. Using a shop towel and some aerosol brake cleaner, open the throttle valve and clean the deposits from the throttle bore. These deposits restrict air flow and can cause a low idle condition. If this does not help you may have a sticking idle air control valve.
