What causes a rough idle when in gear at a stop

There are a few things that can cause this.
1 running your gas tank too low -junk in the gas clogs the gas filter -easy cheap fix
2 the idle could be off too much air or gas on the mixture going into the carb.
3 Timming. this should be done twice a year or so -need timing light -any garage can check it.
4 Need new spark plugs and or wires.
Start with these then see what happens.

How to rebuild a 1987 plymouth gran fury 2 barrel carburetor

First, you will need to get a rebuild kit for it. This contains gaskets and other bits that wear and need replacing on occasion. There will be a number on a tag or the carb body that the parts store will need to get the right kit. There's no point in trying to reuse the old gaskets, if you are going to try that, then don't waste your time rebuilding.

The kit will contain a sheet of paper whjich will give you an exploded diagram of all the parts in your carburator and where they belong. there will also be information on various settings for idle, choke, etc. Don't lose these sheets.

When you start to disassemble the carb, keep the old gaskets to compare with new ones. When you remove the idle screws, turn them in until they stop. Be gentle when you do this and count the number of turns. Write that number down, so when you put it back together you know where the idle setting is supposed to be. There will be extra gaskets in the kit and they will all be different. You must replace with exactly the same as what you took off. Also pay very close attention the how the choke linkage comes apart. It will go together more than 1 way so you can get it wrong. This will make the car act up or maybe not even start.

Soak the carb in a good quality cleaner and make sure everything is clean and all the lines are open before you start to reassemble it.Use your diagrams to make sure you put everthing back where it belongs, replacing with new parts when possible. Be very careful with the float measurement, it must be exact, close won't work.

This is going to take you several hours, so don't be in a rush.

I have a 1985 plymouth gran fury and the headlights stop working after hitting a bump. What is the lightly cause?

Likely cause is a bad ground. Check connections at the bulb. Grab wires and wiggle them around with lights on looking for them to come on or off.

1992 plymouth colt ecm problems. Rough idle. replaced with rebuilt computer ran for 25 miles and stopped again. help?

Make sure the MAF sensor is properly connected. It plugs into the air cleaner housing and is easily damaged and will definitely cause a rough idle. Next- check the idle air control motor on the throttle housing. If these are not the problem make sure the throttle position sensor is working properly. If none of these work-your engine may be worn out...
