The likely cause for your high RPM may be caused by a vacuum leak in the engine. You can open the hood and check your hoses for cracks and leaks. This is a good place to start, but may no be a full solution.

Won't shift from 2nd gear to drive unless i run rpms up to about 5000 also trans rpm limiter not shutting down engine at high rpm's . on a 1997 Dodge Dakota 4x4 SLT. had tranny rebuilt 1 year ago Tranny...


This trans has a safety built in to default to second gear if the computer sees any kind of problem. Have it scanned. It can be an input or out put speed sensor, or even a temp sensor on the engine. If there are codes that say ratio error, take it back to who rebuilt it and hope they will take care of you. I use to give a major discount if they were not too far out of warranty.

Sudden high acceleration


Either a vacuum hose is hooked up wrong or a vacuum leak. Also make sure it's not leaking around the carb base. You can spray carb cleaner around the base while the engine is running. If the rpms drop then you know you have a leak there. Dont spray a lot, just enough to wet the area some.

If you have to stock Hitachi carb its a miss or go when have one rebuilt or buy one rebuilt. There's no new ones out there unless you got really really really lucky. There's only so much of the carb that can be replaced (usually never the electrical compononts) and if it was ever rebuilt correctly.

Motor swap


If your planing on swaping the 2.0 non-turbo(420a) to the 2.0 turbo(4g63t) your problem will be that the motor and transmission are on opposite side of one another. My GST has the trans on the passenger side and the motor on the driver. The 420a is just the opposite. If your serious about it you should get the motor rebuilt with higher performance crank, pistons, rods, exc.  And they make turbo kits for the 420a.  But you'll need better fuel delivery and some mild tuning.
