You should probably fix the cable for the second barrel--maybe you can make one with a coat hanger or similar item.

It seems to me that you may also have a miss. Have you checked plugs and wires? How about the timing?

More Questions--please reply.

I have a 2009 Chevy Silverado 1500 2wd pickup. The check engine light along with the service stabilitrak and traction control lights also came on. It runs rough at idle or low speed. Where do I start?


Have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . If the check engine light starts flashing , park it . The flashing check engine light is telling you there is a catalytic converter damaging miss fire happening . An they can be damaged very easy .

1985 toyota pickup.22r,automatic trans,2 barrel carb,ca smog. rough idle until engine hits thermostat.passes smog.all vacume lines fine,and zip tied.


There ar two thermo vacuum switches on the intake manifold,one in the center top by the EGR pipe right next to the valve cover,and one center bottom on the outside right below the carburator,it may be that one of them is not fully opening/closing when the motor is cold.I'm not sure on this as I've never had this problem with my 22R's,hopefully this will point you in the right direction,if you want comment back and I'll research this further(it's 5 in the morn and I cant access my 22r manual)
