98 durango idle issue
i have a 1998 dodge durango V8 5.2L with an automatic transmission. whenever i remove my foot from the gas pedal it dies. i notice that the rpms drop below the 1,000 mark before it quits(i belive that it hits something like 970 before dying) my theory is that the idle has fallen out of adjustment. i may be wrong but it makes sense to me. how do i go about adjusting that, and if that isnt the problem, what else could cause this? i just put a new battery in the vehicle(it had a 360 volt battery which to my understanding is nearly half what it requires, it now has a 600 volt unit if im not mistaken) as well as a starter and replaced all the fluids except transmission fluid(ive put some in but not replaced all of it/flushed the transmission which i need to have done but havent got the money) big thanks in advanced
EDIT: also i apologize if this has been covered but i figured that any similar problem didn't have the same circumstances, that said im looking through the back topics and if i fix it before any help comes my way ill say so and state my fix incase anyone else has a similar problem. also this vehicle has been a real pain and a money pit to boot so ill be back, im not about to let that money be wasted
