My 2000 dodge stratuse 2.5 V6 sometimes will not idle in the morning. After it worms up it is OK. This will last anywhere from 1-4 days. What could be wrong?

If the battery was recently disconnected or run dead the Engine Computer lost its memory and has to relearn "minimum throttle" before it will know when it must be in control of idle speed. To meet the conditions for the relearn to take place, drive at highway speed with the engine warmed up, then coast for at least seven seconds without touching the brake or gas pedals.
