Hello I own a 2000 intrepid with 39,000 miles on it and have been having issues with my idle and hard starting. When I first start the car is starts up right away but if I drive it and let it set for 20 or so minutes it will have a hard time starting. The idle is constantly low, when it was running right it use to sit around 800-900 rpms at idle but now when I'm coming to a stop it goes to 600 and below. This problem always happens when I'm slowing down. I've had the cars idle go so low when I was going up a hill and not accelerating that the car died on me today. I've spend $565.00 so far on having the throttle body cleaned and having the crank shaft position sensor changed which did not fix my issues. But after having the throttle body cleaned it did help to stop the car from dieing constanly when coming to a stop, but it still does at times.
have the same problem?
