Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Dodge Avenger 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 133000 miles
The engine in my 99 Dodge Avenger started acting up last week. It takes two or three seconds of cranking while giving it gas to get it started and then it idles rough below about 1100 or 1200 rpm. Coming up to a stop sign/light I have to give it a little bit of gas to keep it from stalling, the revs don't seem to try and catch at idle speed, it just falls off. Once it is over 1100 or 1200 rpm it runs fine, no noticeable loss of power until you get to 4000 rpm and then it cuts out. Replaced the spark plugs and wires and had the vacuum system smoke tested which tested good. No CEL as of yet. Any ideas?
have the same problem?
