And if that doesn't work check your tranny fluid level.

Does it run rough or anything? Shake like a miss does it do it when its warm or cold any cels? I concur try iac and tb. First or u may have a sensor going out like the crank sensor or tps...where truck will run under no load but u load it and truck can't recognize what its doing...or maybe even a vacuum leak

If there are no codes..your PCM may be starting to go..it took me MONTHS to figure this one out..I hate it when it acts up and no codes..but trsut me..tkae it to someone you trust once you rule out the easy stuff..and if its the PCM, there is a place online that will send you a preprogrammed one for your vehicle with a LIFETIME warranty.. mine was only $140..for a 2002 r/t cc..runs great now!!! and if I chose to send my old one back, they will refund me $75..

Don't buy one that has been preprogrammed because it hasn't been programmed.

When cleaning the IAC do not move the solenoid plunger.
They are cheep enough it's probably better to replace it.

Mopar....I sent them my VIN and mileage..along with the long numbers on the back of the PCM, and they DID program it..so not to be rude, but you have no idea what you are talking about.
