The cable is a throttle valve cable. It has a silver metallic button on the black casing that is connected to the throttle body. You push in on the metallic piece while pushing the cable casing, not the cable, toward the rear of the engine. Try to push it in as far as it goes. Release the metallic piece and then get in the car and WITHOUT starting the engine, push the accelerator rapidly and all the way to the floor. The cable casing will come back out and now you can try it there if fine tune it's position by pushing down the metallic button and moving the casing to the back to shift sooner or to the front to shift later. These secondary adjustments are done in very, very minute increments.

Does your blower work? if it does,you could have a block in the line. or your water pump could be going bad, or your thermostat could be bad or misreading. Does your engine temp gauge bounce around.

"87' Dodge Ram" The passing gear that is attached to my carburetor, makes my accelerator extremely tense. If it was unhooked what would be my results from this?


What you call a passing gear is in fact a kick down cable and should only work when you push the accelerator to the floor. It increases engine rpm at the same time it shifts the gears back a gear to allow for acceleration. If you unhook it then there will be no shift of the gear so you will be struggling in the drive gear and it will be useless. . Fix and adjust the cable and you will find that it works really good.

Fuel pressure? Do you hear the fuel pump running? Read the codes to see if ECM is still alive. Do you have spark at the plugs? Remember all motors need 3 things to run air, fuel, and fire at the right time.

sounds like a fuel pump struggling to pass its contents. try running a treatment solution in your tank. if this fails to work, you will need a new fuel pump to correct this problem. sometimes, trash will build up in your tank and it will cause build up in the jets. you should check vacuum as well if needed.
