no you should be able to do it There should be a routing label on the underside of hood or on the radiator support/ Its should not be very hard if you have one already just loosen the Alternator it will slide down get the other one ready look to see the way its routed then slide the new one and tighten up the alternator thats it/ Please rate my response thank you very much

Sometimes a valve lifter will stick and cause a ticking it is possible that a valve lifter has lost its prime or it might be that the oil is too thin. Wthout more info my bet would be a lifter

Take a look at the down shift cable and make sure its not broken especially were it connects to the throttle linkage.And maybe try cleaning the electrical plug that plugs into the trans.Its about a 7 to 9 wire plug.They tend to collect water and short the wiring out.

SOURCE: rough idle and misfire on ram truck

Change cam sensor & erase codes.( disconnect battery for a minute or so after.) 340 & 1391 refer to cam sensor problem, and all other 300 codes are cylinder misfires that should disappear when cam sensor fixed.

SOURCE: 1987 toyota truck, 22r, carb. sometimes goes into a mode where it

I had the same problem 3 weeks ago with my 87 Toyota truck. I posted the problem here and the response I got was- On the passenger side rear of the carburetor is a cold air idle valve, it has a two wire pigtail on it, remove the valve and clean it out with carb cleaner. Then screw it back in and all should be well. I did this, not really expecting much. My truck started right up and has been idling with no problem since. Try this and also your fuel filter.

Yes, the floats may be causing the fuel level in the carb. to be too high. The black plugs indicate running too rich. Clean the plugs and check the fuel level.

clean the idle air control valve. This thing controls your idle speed but gets gummed up with deposits. buy a can of spray carb cleaner and maybe a cheap set of torx L wrenches if you dont have any. remove IAC and clean valve and bore with paper towels and carb cleaner. Also use some of that carb cleaner to clean the throttle bore and plate using an old toothbrush and towels. and lastly replace the PCV valve. Your truck will now idle like it just came off the showroom floor!

The carburator needs to be retuned under a load to correct the problem. Take the truck back to the place were the carburator was worked on, and have them to check the carburator out for correct adjustments. Hope this will help you !!

89 ram charger starts and stops, running irratically - HELP !!!


what you can do to test the idle control motor, is spray some brake cleaner or other thin, clean finishing solvent on it to let it release when the gas pedal is released. it may just be getting hung up after the vehicle warms. hope this helps

Truck will not stay running without giving gas after a jump off


when the battery goes dead it looses its memory on engine settings like idle speed.. two things you can do first one is to clean the throttle bore with carb cleaner... the other is to start with foot on gas and slowly bring it back to idle... it will pick up the idle air position to keep itself running if you do it slowly... everything happens over time so as the throttle gets dirty the computer makes these adjustment on its own and when the battery dies it starts out basicly at different percentage of idle control tht it really needs because of the carbon buildup on the throttle plates
