I have a rough idle, it fluctuates between 600 and 1000 rpm. It only does this when the outside temperature is below 70 degrees. I have replaced the dpfe sensor, cleaned the mass air flow sensor, replaced o then sensors and still have this problem. It codes a P0174.

Did you check or replace the coolant temp sensor? If not and you have a digital volt ohm meter we can check it to see if it is bad.

No I did not check the coolant temp sensor and yes I do have a digital volt meter.

Ok if you would when the engine is cold unplug and ohm the coolant sensor then also ohm the air charge temp sensor. Get back to me with the readings and the air temp too.

Not to sound in educated, but where would the coolant temp sensor and air temp sensor be located? I have a pretty good idea but want to be sure. The coolant temp sensor is right beside where the upper radiator hose goes into the watt pump and air temp is located after the mass air flow in the intake system?
