well i,m thinking i just have to live with until it gets worse thanks anyway
Dodge Mechanic: tims auto repair, mechanic replied 1 year ago

1-the first thing to do is to check for a vacuum leak,check all hoses for damage

2-check around the intake manifold for a vacuum leak,the intake gaskets may be bad.

3-the bushing in the distributer may be worn causing the distributer to have play

Customer reply replied 1 year ago

Dodge Mechanic: tims auto repair, mechanic replied 1 year ago

i would think it isnt too bad at the moment or the engine light would come on.
