I have a 2010 dodge caliber with a p0507 idle air control…

Customer Question
I have a 2010...

I have a 2010 dodge caliber with a p0507 idle air control system rpm too high code. The car goes into limp mode with the red lightning symbol illuminated. I already changed my throttle body and did the key on / off relearn, but the problem still persists, any ideas?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? What size is the engine?

88k.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Caliber yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. just the throttle body

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it

Which throttle body did you use? Own or aftermarket?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Aftermarket. I did a little more diagnosis since. The car runs good when cold. When it wants to slow down when warm. I hear a vacuum leak on the belt side of the engine.

Does your scan tool read live data?

No, just codes.

No, just codes. No vacuum leak when cold

No, just codes. No vacuum leak when cold. Is there an egr valve or some other switched emission device on that side of the engine?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Both p2173 and p0507 codes.
Dodge Mechanic: Dan, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

Try spraying the intake down with throttle body cleaner while the engine is at idle. Listen for rpm to change. You need a scan tool that is able to read you fuel trims.

At present my problem is not duplicating. I had cleared all codes, disconnected the battery, then later reprogrammed the throttle body. For a while I was able to use propane to increase the rpm around the 1st fuel injector. Possible intake manifold gasket leak. Ill have to wait for the engine to cool down to see if it duplicates

You could be getting a better seal when the engine is warm.
