Stalling or Low Engine Idle Speed Due to Dirty Throttle Body on Dodge Intrepid

Problem Description and Possible Solution

A dirty throttle body may cause low engine idle speed or frequent stalling, as oily residue blocks air flow in the throttle when the throttle is closed. Throttle body cleaning may be necessary to correct this condition. Our technicians caution against spraying cleaner directly onto the throttle body as this may damage the throttle position sensor (TPS).
