Low Idle Stalling
1998 Durango 5.9L with 174K miles. Same thing happened to me on Valentine's Day (kinda embarassing with the wife in the Durango). Anyway, pulled out the IAC and it was full of carbon.
I was going to do the carbon cleaning method, but my mechanic friend recommend that I just change the IAC since I had an 1998 model with a lot of miles. Picked up the part at O'Reilly's (Part: 21821 - I like the BWD brand, just partial I guess) for about $65 (other brands were around $35 and up) and installed it. Now the engine idles nicely and no "stalling."
Thank you for the troubleshooting and recommendation!
