My van is running ok, but is not idling good. Feels like it wants to cut off.

(2002 Dodge Caravan)
in Macon, GA on January 04, 2013
We recently replaced the battery and it seems like over the last few weeks when I am at a stop sign or red light that the car is acting like it wants to cut off. Once I push on the gas to go it seems fine.

You could simply have a cracked air hose. There are multiple air lines that run to the engine. Check all hoses and inspect mas air flow boot and pipe coming from your intake air filter. If you can not find the leak, you may need to take it to a shop that can smoke the system to find even small leaks.
