Hello everyone, I'm a new enthusiast. I own an 1999 Dodge Dakota 3.9 and I'd just put an complete tune-up on her last night. The truck sat in my garage for a couple of months, and I thought the tune-up would fix whatever might be wrong, though now when start it up I have to keep my foot on the gas pedal or It'll cut off. Can any one tell me what this means, and what can I do to fix this problem? :confused:

Welcome to DakotaForumZ, glad to have you join us! Sorry to hear about your problem, but I have the same question as above, was it doing it before it sat for a while? Looks like dodgefan has the same recommendations as I would have, but good luck, keep us posted and I hope you enjoy the site! :)

Was the battery dead when you began this project? A dirty thottle body/IAC may also be the culprit.
