Question about 1989 Dodge Ram 50

1 Answer

Have a 1989 Dodge Ram 50 with a 2.0. Replaced Timing belt bout a yr ago. Replaced carb with a remanafactured stock( Big Mistake) Truck always was hard to start when it gets cold. HAve to let truck sit and Idle fir 5 mins before it warms up. All of a sudden today it will not idle properly. Changed spark plugs found 2 vaccum leaks. Tried adjusting timing. But no Avil. Once truck warms up it idles very rough now. IS it possible that the carburator is shot? I am thinking of buying a WEBER. Much cheaper than a crappy factory one. When I replaced the carb with one from Autozone the Electric choke has been not working right since DAY 1 But did not let it bother me.. HELP PLZ!

    I don't know if its a bad valve. It seems that the carb is sucking in air. I can hear it when I take off the breather. It seems to be sucking too much air. But will try the compression test though

If you can spray carb cleaner in the carb then you have either a fuel supply problem or fuel delivery problem. Check your fuel pressure and make sure it is in spec. Then check the spray in the carb spray.
