No idle on a 03 w 4.0l
Can't find a discussion on this yet, so I'll ask. My 03 GC keeps giving me the same idle control code and it will not idle on cold start. Have replaced the TPS(broke it on removal) and IAC valve. Cleaned the TB, replaced base gasket. New fuel filter. Replaced cracked hoses found after smoking the system to no avail. Did find a lot of smoke coming from the TB linkage shaft area. New O2 sensors, however the "lean conditions" persists. Other than replacing the TB with a new one I humbly :eek: ask the forum members for suggestions.
Among other symptoms there is stalling when taking off.

Crank Sensor?

You get a lean code? How many miles and have you replaced the fuel filter? If it's a 03 and the original filter, it's probably due for a new one.

Which code(s) you exactly have?

Thanks for taking the time. Yes, new FF on Saturday. New O2s back in April. Still lean on both sensors. Have not thought about the crank. Frango, will have to hook it up again to get you specific #s and actual descriptions. About 140K miles and 2WD.

Re: No idle on a 03 w 4.0l
what brand O2 sensors were installed? chryslers dont like aftermarket sensors for some reason.

Sorry for the late response, I managed to blow my radiator and had to play mechanic for 4 hrs. (never claimed to b skilled at "mechaniking") replaced rad, fan relay and motor. Thanks to a friend's generosity was able to use all his tools and space. Did not have a scanner only a code reader.

Pulled codes again and gave me PO505 as IAC malfunction. Runs a lot better after "upgrading" the cooling system, however I still have inconsistent idle.
Thx for any help!
