    Im looking for help, lately my commander after starting it during idle will rev up and down the rpm jump and drop and today after a drive after i put into park was doing it again and almost dropped down to close to zero and almost sounded like it was going to cut off. Any help?

    With a handle of Goodfellas. Don't know if your going to get much help and input. Fear of giving bad or wrong info. And retribution for doing so. Just saying dude. Lol....

    Im sure some one will chime in. Hang tight dude.

    Does it happen when the engine has been running for a while, or just on short trips?

    Kinda sounds like the IAC is blocked, or not functioning. I would clean or replace it and see if that solves the issue. Another thing, when it does this, and you turn on the AC, does the RPM stabilize?

    My ac doesnt work there is a keak in the line and it only makes a slight screatching noise when turned on does the IAC effect anything negatively other than just not regulating rpms while idleing?

    The IAC being bad can cause the engine to struggle at idle, or die, such as you have experienced. Its not a good idea to not fix it, as it can cause other issues.
