Question about 1988 Dodge Ram 50
I went threw inspection everything passed but the high idle test i replaced the o2 sensor new plugs new wires new dist cap and router new oil and filer new air filter and then back the screw out for the high idle to were it can go no more took it back threw inspection and they failed it again for the high idle what can i do to fix this and fix it fast
You are going to have to take it to a shop so they can calibrate the idle, there's two screws you have to mess with and it's not worthy to try to do it yourself, it'd be very frustrating, sorry. It happened to me and it took me months to finally give up, I paid only $60.

O2 sensor helped me but not enough to pass. Loosen your distributor bolts, one on each side, turn your distributor counter clock wise about 1/4 inch and tighten bolts. This will raise your CO but should reduce the NOX. When the vehicle is passed, undo the changes.

I have heard that if you run the **** out of it before taking it in it will pass

Testimonial: "thanks i will try that."
How about the pick up coil in the distributor? A trick we used to use back in the day was to tap the distributor housing with a hammer, key word tap. If the engine missed or stalled than the pick-up coil was replaced.
