Default 06 GT Idle Issues

I have been reading all of the idling problems other PT owners have but I haven't been able to run mine down. It's stumbling like a drunk at happy hour! I replaced the plugs Iridium (gap .40) new high performance wires, and cam idle sensor. I am wondering if it is something computer related? Not throwing any codes. Battery is new and clean terminals. Always running 93 octane. This is frustrating

Was your cam sensor Mopar? There are lots of posts about bad aftermarket cam sensors.

Try using a good fuel injector cleaner (dont remember the brand i use but its in black bottle and $7-$8 usually)

Crappy fuel these days can gunk up injectors and can cause rough idle. Or depending on miles or how bad they are, you may need injectors cleaned and flow matched.
