SOURCE: 1989 dodge Ramcharger stalls

Hi Monkeypaint!
I assume you have power brakes and I gather that it idles properly at times, but dies when the brakes are applied. This sound like a leaking power brake assist vacuum line or diaphram. You can verify this by locating the big vacuum hose connecting the intake manifold to the assist diaphram. This will be about an inch in diameter connected to the round item behind the brake master cylinder next to the firewall.

  1. Disconnect the line at the intake manifold end, and plug the vacuum port on the manifold with a tapered rubber stopper or cap.
  2. Being aware that you now do NOT have power assist to the brakes (requiring CONSIDERABLY more pedal pressure to stop!!!), see if the problem goes away. If it does, you have narrowed it down to the assist diaphram or the hose. If it still persists, it is an engine tuning/control issue, not related to brakes.
  3. Do determine whether it is the vacuum hose or the cannister, remove the previously installed cap/plug, reinstall the hose to the intake manifold, disconnect it from the diaphram and plug/cap the hose at that end. Repeat step three... if the problem returns, the hose is leaking and should be replaced... If the problem still goes away, the Power Brake Assist Diaphram Cannister is leaking excessively and should be replaced.
  • ***ALSO*** Any other vacuum lines leaking can lower the manifold vacuum to a threshold level where the load of power brake assist actuation crosses the line for adequate vacuum to idle*** So check all vacuum lines underhood, looking for a pronounced hissing at vacuum leaks. A manifold vacuum gauge is a relatively inexpensive diagnostic tool that could also be useful.
Well, hope this helps, and good luck! Don't forget to rate this answer!
Thanks!

SOURCE: why does my 1989 chevrolet s10 surge and idle up

You may have a bad idle air control valve, I would also check for a vacuum leak, from a vacuum hose or a broken vacuum tee.

Remove the water pump belt. Start and see if the noise is gone. If the noise is gone you have a bad component that is driven by the belt.

The basics for a rough idle on almost any vehicle, is to check for a leak of some kind, egr--fuel--vacuum, something of that nature. You can try cleaning throttle body and idle air, see if it helps? How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes?

89 daytona foamy oil... white smoke...???


The information you gave gives the impression that the head gasket has gone bad and the engine needs to be rebuilt. You can just replace the head gasket, but that's just a quick fix for now. The antifreeze mixed with the engine oil is bad, Antifreeze is very corrosive to the main crank shaft bearing and most likely need to be addressed. At this point might as well go through the whole engine since it's apart. Sorry for the bad news friend.
