Q: Low idle on van

asked by on

My Dodge van is idling low.

A low idle can be caused by many things for example a bad Idle Air Control Valve, or faulty catalytic converter. There are so many variables that it is best to seek the help of a technician for a good diagnosis. A mechanic like one from YourMechanic will be able to ask questions that will better point him in a good direction to start the diagnosis.
