The engine has just been rebuilt. We have replaced the cam sensor and the IAC motor once. We are replacing the IAC motor again today just in case the one we got was bad (just to eliminate that). Have you had any experince with the '99 Dodge 2.7 Liter engines and this stalling problem? Thanks.

You need to clean the throttle body before changing the IAC again.

First eliminate all vacuum or air leaks in the system. You may have a bad IAC ( idle air control) but try cleaning the throttle body first. Remove the intake snorkel, have someone hold the throttle wide open for you and scrub the back side of the throttle plate and surrounding bore with an old tooth brush and some carb cleaner. Be sure to spray some into the small holes next to the throttle plate. That should help stabilize the idle.
