TARGET IDLE SPEED FOR 05'

2005 Dodge Stratus

Engine Performance problem
2005 Dodge Stratus 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 60000 miles

I am curious as to the target idle speed for a 2005 Dodge Stratus. Also, how long does it take for a MIL to reset after dis-connecting the negative lead to the battery and hopefully fixing my problem outlined below?

I had a MIL illuminate with a diagnosed P0507 OBDII. The car did idle kind of high. I was able to clean the throttle body and the engine does now have a lower idle, approx. 1.6 on the dash.

My MIL is now turned off but I suspect that disconnecting the negative lead on the battery caused this as the MIL will not reset.

Possible causes: PCV system check it and check for leaks
IAC motor passagescheck and clean
Vacuum leaks
air induction system
throttle body and linkage
