I looked, and a fellow from the auto parts place looked. The 89 is a
transition year. Throttle port injection, so it's neither up (carb) nor down
The Haynes book said that under "runs rough at cold idle" to look for vacuum
leaks, tighten down the sorta-carb and then PCV valve. And maybe EGR. I got
the PCV at the auto parts today $2.99, and the parts guy showed me the EGR,
which is not as much a PIA as a steering pump. Or an alternator bracket.
Done both of those this year.
Hint: If you neglect to replace the small half inch long bolt on the back of
your alternator, you will spend four hours or so replacing the broken
alternator bracket. Yes, I know the Dodges you have worked on all your life
don't have a back bolt. But Chevys do. DAMHIKT.
Thanks ever so much for the wisdom.
