Check for air leaks around manifold ports (gasket area ) check all vacuum hoses , you can check for air leaks by spraying WD 40 around the inlet ports and if the engine gains a few revs you will know you have a leak.

Check Engine light is on. Find out what DTC (diagnostic trouble code) is set and I can help you more. You can get a code puller from your local parts store.

SOURCE: When I'm driving my kia sedona 2.9 automatic is

The throttle position sensor on the intake area and the kickdown switch are both suspect in this. If your pushing hard enough to shift down it could be that sensor is faulty, If not the change in position is to fast for the faulting position sensor. Those are the cheapest things to replace, The other maybe the transmission modulator that tells the unit to shift down.

2004 jeep liberty won't move when put in gear (like brakes are locked).crank it in neutral put in gear it will go till i touch brakes then won't move again.WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS THING.


gear, is this a Manual trans? or AUTO you said gear.
what gear, please name the gear, 1,2,3,4,5 R
or PRNDL ( a/t box auto matic) what shift lever selection?
what is out door air temp, you do know brakes can get wet and freeze right?
it wont go you meant? until brakes are touched, key word won't?

ok engine only starts in PRNDL set to N??
is that it?
and then when you shift to D, the car will not move
what about the other gears.? try them all yet?

my guess (wild) is that you dont know how park lock out works.?
that you must hold the brake pedal down to shift to park or neutral.
is that it? (read operators guide?)

my guess is car is not drive-able. key point1 (a dead car)
point 2, engine starts and runs. and races on demand with gas foot.
point 3, im lost. (no trans stated or clear symptoms.)

my jeep has 6speed manual box
and the clutch allows me to start car.
on Automatics trans must be in park or neutral to crank engine.

"it will go till i touch brakes"



I read that 10 times,
my 2nd guess. the engine stalls ?

IS THAT IT, stalls means engine RPM is 0
and right foot actions are dead.
and all dash lamps glow, telling you STALL is now.

I would check the IAC motor or idle air control motor, heres a little info.about the part.Stratus Sedan, 1999-2005 Idle Air Control Motor

Description & Operation

Not for Dodge Stratus Sedan
The idle air control motor (IAC) attaches to the throttle body. It is an electric stepper motor. The PCM adjusts engine idle speed through the idle air control motor to compensate for engine load, coolant temperature or barometric pressure changes. The throttle body has an air bypass passage that provides air for the engine during closed throttle idle. The idle air control motor pintle protrudes into the air bypass passage and regulates airflow through it.
The PCM adjusts engine idle speed by moving the IAC motor pintle in and out of the bypass passage. The adjustments are based on inputs the PCM receives. The inputs are from the throttle position sensor, crankshaft position sensor, coolant temperature sensor, MAP sensor, vehicle speed sensor and various switch operations (brake, park/neutral, air conditioning).

Not for Dodge Stratus Sedan
When engine rpm is above idle speed, the IAC is used for the following functions:


Off-idle dashpot Deceleration air flow control A/C compressor load control (also opens the passage slightly before the compressor is engaged so that the engine rpm does not dip down when the compressor engages)

Removal & Installation

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the IAC electrical connector.
  3. Remove the IAC mounting screws.
  4. Remove the IAC.

To Install:
  1. Install the IAC to the throttle body.
  2. Tighten mounting screws to 5.1 Nm (45 inch lbs.) torque.
  3. Attach electrical connector to the IAC.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.

2001 dodge dakota stalling when coming to a stop


While driving, the Idle air control valve (IAC) fully retracts and you control airflow with the gas pedal. When you come to a stop the computer extends the IAC to let air bypass the throttle plate and maintain idle speed. If the IAC is sticking it sometimes cannot compensate fast enough to avoid a stall. The problem is aggravated by the Air conditioner clutch cycling on while stopping. You don't mention the check engine light so not likely a sensor. If you have a OBDII scanner with live data available you can check the Throttle position sensor easily. You are looking for a smooth change through the range as you press and release the gas pedal. Or use a voltmeter to see the TPS. Measure resistance with engine off or voltage (0 to 5 volts) with ignition on. It should move smoothly through the range.
Another easy test. Park brake on, in gear (if an automatic transmission) at idle, load the engine by turning the steering quickly to the end and see how quickly the IAC recovers. Clean or replace IAC and while in there clean the carbon off of the edges of the throttle plate.

Have a 1989 cutlass ciera that rolls back a little when put in park. What could that be? 2nd issue is it stalls when you come to a stop.


the rool back is down to slack in the drive line,
ie prop and back lash in the diff, there will also be some back lash in the gear box as well, this is completly normal so dont worry about it,, however you should all ways keep the foot drake on till you have put the habd brake on then and only them slip it into park as if you keep letting it rool back and stoping in park you could snap of the park claw inside the auto gear box, that a pricy repair, so please hold the brakes on before you go into park,,,
as for the stalling part,,, how fast is the tick over when warm and in gear (in drive with foot brake on)
if its less that 850 rpm thats the problem,,, auto's realy dont like a slow tick over, there is a lot of drag on an auto box, at tick over it should hold your car from rolling back on a slight hill or even drive up it with out you putting any power on to make it pull away, they also creep forwards in gear by them selfs, thats normal too,,safe,happy driving!!!!!!!

Over revving


I don't know the year but it could be a defective IAC solenoid. If its an older truck then it could be a throttle cable.

Engine stalls when shifting into any drive gear.


It sounds like your idle air control valve could be going out on you.  The extra stress from being in gear can cause the car to stall out if the IAC valve isn't opperating properly.  The IAC is attached to the throttle body and is normally held on by two screws.  IAC valves are relatively cheap from AutoZone and easy to replace.  That would be my best guess based on your description.  Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!

- will not idle at proper setting, stalls when put into gear


Check for vacuum leaks and test the idle air conrtol valve.

0900c1528006c55b-lxsvs4ftyjtcqsaualeaxmu4-4-0.gif TESTING

See Figure 2
  1. Disengage the IAC electrical connector.
  2. Using an ohmmeter, measure the resistance between IAC terminals A and B. Next measure the resistance between terminals C and D.
  3. Verify that the resistance between both sets of IAC terminals is 20-80 ohms. If the resistance is not as specified, the IAC may be faulty.
  4. Measure the resistance between IAC terminals B and C. Next measure the resistance between terminals A and D.
  5. Verify that the resistance between both sets of IAC terminals is infinite. If the resistance is not infinite, the IAC may be faulty.
  6. Also, with a small mirror, inspect IAC air inlet passage and pintle for debris. Clean as necessary, as this can cause IAC malfunction.
