2001 Durango Idle Speed

Unread post by captainmike500 » Sun Jul 07, 2013 11:45 am

I have an 2001 Durango 8 cyl. 2 cyl. have 0 compression. I have shut off the fuel pump to those 2 cylinders so I can run on 6 cyl, but the idle is too low and it stalls at every stop. Is there a way to override/modify the computer controlled idle speed?

you can adjust the throttle but it is not recommended. (of course) there is a cap over the adjuster. there is a minimum airflow test you should to see if the throttle body should be cleaned out for coking. If throttle body is clean and still have idle problems, Minimun air flow test should be 500-900rpm, the recommendation is to replace the throttle body assembly.
