SOURCE: 1986 dodge ram 225ci slant six and a single barrel holley carb

Start with the idle needle screw first, the idle mixture screw. Seat it all the way in, first-don't overtighten and damage it, just seat it lightly, and back out two full turns. Run the engine and set the adjustment by ear to get your best lean idle: start turning the screw in (clockwise) 1/8 or 1/4 turn at a time till engine stumbles, dies, or runs rough. Keep the engine running, and turn screw out (counterclockwise) a little at a time till you hear the idle dropping. Now between those two settings is your best lean idle. Turn the screw in, a little at a time and wait for engine to respond, tiill you get the highest idle speed. Now set the other idle screw, curb idle, to the idle setting for your truck, probably about 700 rpm. You can move back and forth between the screws to get the best steady idle. Just don't over do it on the idle mixture screw.
Good luck.

What is the power of engine truck dodge d-500 6 cylinder 1964

I think the biggest slant sixes were 225 cubic inches with a 1 bbl carb and 145hp@4000rpm and 215#/ft of torque@2200rpm. A D500 may have had something else, but if it's a "Slanted" engine, I'd bet on 145hp. Seems kinda small for D500....

What is the name of the manual 4 speed transmission for the 1984 dodge d100 with a 3.7 (225ci) motor, and with that trans match up to a 5.2 (318ci) motor?? thank you

The great Dodge slant 6 engine...these were very strong and dependable, i put 300,000 on a 1985 D100 and it was still going strong when i sold it. Your transmission is a "883"
Chrysler began using "833" four speeds in passenger cars in 1964. The transmission was designed by Chrysler and manufactured by New Process Gear Co. Chrysler installed the 833 four speed behind the Slant Six at two different times. The first production four speed slant sixes were the 1964-66 A-body four speed cars. The second run of production four speed slant sixes began in 1975 with the release of the Overdrive A-833. From 1975 until 1987 the Overdrive four speed was installed in slant six applications of A-bodies, F-bodies, and light trucks (D100 & D200 series trucks). These applications were not ultra rare, but the slant six four speed production figures pale in comparison to the number of V8 cars that received A-833 four speeds. Since the A-833s installed behind slant sixes were basically the same transmissions installed in the V8 cars, a slant six owner looking to install an A-833 should be familiar with all the A-833s produced, including the ones used behind V8s...There are several characteristics of the various A-833s that determine which four speeds fit in which chassis and with which engines. For the passenger cars, Chrysler manufactured two different length four speeds. The A/F-bodies received a short tailshaft A-833 and the B/C/E-bodies received a long tailshaft A-833. This difference is obvious when one of each type is sitting side by side, but either type is easily identified when it happens to be a stand alone unit.

If you are looking to replace your truck tranny, you will need to find another one out of a truck that had the slant 6 engine for it to be a direct bolt up. Chrysler made several variations.

1975 thru 1987 Overdrive 3.09:1 - 1.67:1 - 1:1 - 0.73:1 (Trucks used a 0.71:1 fourth)

Good luck, hope this helps.

I need to know how to reprogram a keyless entry remote for a 2003 nissan frontier..

IMPORTANT: Before entering programming mode, have in possession all of the
transmitters you will be using on the vehicle. Once you program the
transmitter, all previous codes will be erased from the memory. The other
transmitters will not be functional until you program the transmitters

1. Close and lock all doors with the driver's side power lock/unlock

2. Insert key into ignition and remove it from the ignition key cylinder
at least six times within 10 seconds. Your Hazard
Lamps will flash if you have performed this step successfully. NOTE:
Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder
each time. If this procedure is performed too fast, system will not
enter programming mode.

3. Insert key into the ignition cylinder and turn to the ACC position.

4. Within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the remote transmitter. Your
Hazard Lamps should flash. NOTE: Do not press
the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is
pressed more than one time, the programming
procedure will not be successful.

5. If there are any remaining transmitters (including the old ones),
unlock then lock all doors using the driver's side
power lock/unlock switch and within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the
next remote. Your Hazard Lamps should
flash. Repeat this step for each transmitter (including any existing

6. Turn the key to the OFF position, remove keys from the ignition, unlock
doors using the driver's side power lock/unlock switch and open the driver
side door.
