Question about 1983 Chrysler Cordoba
My 1985 F-150 failed smog, CO very high. I suspect the feedback control solenoid, but you can't buy one from a Ford dealer or Autozone. Nothing online either. The local junk yards don't keep that kind of stuff around.
I already replaced the oxygen sensor, installed new manifold gaskets, and fixed some other possible exhaust leaks and a jammed plenum type gadget between the intake and exhaust manifold (it's a very strange design!)
The smog mechanic said replace the carburetor, but I already did that and the new one came with no feedback solenoid. So I had to install the old one on the new carburetor.
I have no options but to junk the thing, but it's a 4x4 supercab long bed, really useful for hauling junk around and going four wheeling in the desert.
As it uses a carburettor, set the main jet adjustment to run leaner.

SOURCE: 2003 T&C Solenoid Pack leaks
Depends on where the leak is from,the top or the side with the torx screws,if it's at the top which is usually the problem the gasket is about 5.00 and you have to remove the breather assembly,and the 3 bolts from the top side and wire harness from pack has a 10mm nut holding the harness on,install new gasket,if you remove the torx screws there are 3 springs,cups,and spacers that will fall out so the spacers go into the screw holes and the 3 springs and cans are all the same size so order doesn't matter on these.

Chrysler has a bulletin out for a simular condititon that involves replacing the pcm. Heres the bulletin number 18-005-04. This is only 1 possible cause , Fuel pressure, coolant temp sensor, thottle position sensor all can cause like problems. Seeing sensor values and fuel adaptives with a scan tool helps pin point problems.

vacuum leaks on intake manifold,
the air tube between the air filter.
intake manifold vacuum hose.
clean throttle plate with Berryman carburator cleaner
SEE sample picture HERE
Also remove carbon built up behind the EGR valve and the EGR passage tube.
Vacuum leak WILL offset the intended 14.7 to 1 air fuel ratio.
More un-metered air (leaks) will lean out the fuel mixture.
Use small amount of Berryman carb clearer at potential air leak area will help you identify trouble spot.
At idle,just spray and listen for the RPM surge.
The in-rush of carb clearer will increase the RPM on the motor.
Record the problem spot(s) and address it later.
EGR carbon built up require 2+ hours to clean from start to finish.
You will need a new EGR base gasket before your start.
Locate and remove the EGR valve after the vehicle is cool down.
Carefully record the connector and vacuum line (for older vehicle) location by drawing an easily to follow diagram.
Remove the EGR valve.
Inspect the location of the carbon built-up inside the valve and the EGR passage tube.
SOAK these areas with WD-40 spary.
You will need a small screwdriver,cloth hanger and lot of newspaper and time to get this cleaning done right.
RE-SOAK the carbon and let it sit for over-night will also help.
One the last round,pass a shop vacuum of the EGR valve and the passage pipe.
Install the new EGR gasket and connectors.
Allow the vehicle to warm up outdoor to burn up any remaining WD-40.
Take it for a test drive.
Please rate my answer if it's useful to you.
