I got a problem on a caburaror on aselerate truck 87 dodge


Idles, automatic chokes, and kick down idles must be adjusted. You cannot just install a carburetor rebuilt or new without making idle and linkage adjustments to match the engine requirements. Does it have an idle solenoid adjustment and kick down adjustment, double barreled?. Did you get new springs for linkage? Have a mechanic make the adjustments. Find an older mechanic that knows carburetors.

How to replace my idle speed motor 1990 Dakota v6 3.9l


I had a 1992 5.2 V8 Dakota,so I looked over my
Factory Service Manual for you

The 3.9 & 5.2 are much the same

At the front of the throttle body is the MAP Sensor
On the drivers side the TPS & at the rear the AIS Motor

Air Idle Speed Motor

My experience once,was with a low idle, I replaced a worn
set of spark plugs,cleaned the rotor & cap & was good to go

That is what I would do & then remove the AIS & try cleaning it
& the port it goes into

I have a Mastertech OBD 1 Scan tool like the GM Tech 2 ,back
in those years,so I could control the idle with it, to test it

Today I just use the scope for TPS & Oxygen Sensors & moved
on the a Notebook Scan Software

I can not see from the manual the screw type,but it appears to be
two screws holding it in & I would guess they are torx,like a T30
maybe

If you can't get it to work or idle replace the AIS

Make sure the cable & throttle shaft etc don't stick

If you have to remove the throttle body & clean it good

2001 dodge dakota sport with 2.5 engine idles high when I start it up, continues idling high, when pushing clutch in to change gears it idles extremely high


Does it do it if you disconnect the idle air control valve ?
You need to know if its a vac leak or if the computer is making the valve open too far.

Intermittent high idle, any ideas?


try cleaning the idle speed control motor with carb spray, it may just have sludge in it causing it to stick, have a dakota myself and had a similiar issue, cleaned the motor and all was well.
