Check the idle air control valve (IAC). It is located on the fuel system side near the aircleaner . If you look inside the hole on the fuel system you can see the holes from the IAC. Cleaning out this valve can sometimes clear the problem. Clean it using carb cleaner and with the engine running spray directly aiming at the holes on the side. Let the cleaner soak in by turning off the engine. It can also be removed and cleaned. Spary a good 10 seconds and let soak , then repeat the procedure with the engine running. If that is not the problem or the engine does not improve at all . It may be the Crankshaft Position Sensor. your best bet would be to take the car to Autozone or other store for a free trouble code. But try to clean the IAC first.

1985 dodge ramcharger, carburetor issues


Sounds like a problem I had with my '85 Dodge D150 Ram Prospector. In my case, the automatic choke was broken and it was starved for air during acceleration because the choke was always closed. It ran fine at idle or very slow acceleration. I wired the choke open and it runs much better, although it is much more difficult to start as the fuel mix is lean due to the extra air. Once it gets warmed up, though, it runs fine. I hear that the barrel carb on mine often has problems.

1983 Mazda RX7 lacks power rough or no idle


Sounds like carb idle air or fuel jets are clogged.. Test pressure with a gauge to be sure. Float level and drop needs to be exact.. Operation of the whole carb relies on this. Probably why you are not getting any change in your air/fuel adjustments.

95 Grand Marquis loses power between 45mph - 60mph


Mine was doing the same thing. I took it to one place and they charged me $107.00 for a fuel injection cleaning. That didn't do a thing. I then took it to a backyard mechanic and it turned out to be a bad spark plug. It has been running great ever since. Good luck.
