I would greatly like and be grateful for someone to tell me something that might help, look at, or to check. I loved it to death, never had any trouble with it of any kind, just put gas in it and go. Turned out the bolts on the main pulley sheared off and the engine running with no accessories was so quiet, he thought the engine was dead. Now when it's cold it won't start clicking and won't do it's thing. Pull the door lever out about half way and remove the bolt holding the lever to the mechanism Underneath the arm rest, in the indent for the handle, there should be a Phillips head screw. Adjust the choke only on a stone cold engine.
Sounds like either poor connections or low battery voltage. The 86 has a ballest on top of the coil from factory. This is a fuel injected truck, so there's lots of things to check like the coldstart sensor and as much as I love the truck. Some vehicles utilize a pressure switch which usually is mounted on the brake master cylinder, and to my knowledge is not adjustable, and must be replaced if defective. It the resistor is cracked or charred, replace it. Since the A-833s installed behind slant sixes were basically the same transmissions installed in the V8 cars, a slant six owner looking to install an A-833 should be familiar with all the A-833s produced, including the ones used behind V8s.
They do not have a high dielectric rating and are very prone to bleed off and arcing even when they are just a little damp. Unless coil was replaced and person who replaced it did not re-install it. I'll be buying a service anual tonight to get more educated on the system. Make sure that the accfelerator pump squirts when you move the throttle linkage. Take a Phillips head screw driver and put it between the panel and the … actual door. Greetings from Providence, Rhode Island. Seat it all the way in, first-don't overtighten and damage it, just seat it lightly, and back out two full turns.
As I may be dealing with a dead module myself, please contact me and perhaps we can share information. . Turn the screw in, a little at a time and wait for engine to respond, tiill you get the highest idle speed. I'm doing some work to it and might post it when i have it looking pretty. All the fuses are good and the fusable links. They use the selonoid on the starter for the relay.
Now set the other idle screw, curb idle, to the idle setting for your truck, probably about 700 rpm. Thank you Bob Yeah it can't be getting fuel. Once home I put it in park and the idle kept surging and sounded like it was missing. I can jump the relay and it will fire right up with the key in the on position and cut off with the key. If your post does not appear please message the moderators with a link to your post and we will take care of that for you. There is either something preventing it from physically getting to the motor, or something messed up electronically that makes the computer think it's getting gas when it actually isn't.
You need to start a question of your own. If you need info on how to adjust let me know Hot, or at operating temp, choke should be wide open. You will see a multi wire connector with a bolt in the center attached to the module. I like someone to keep turning the key off and on that gives me a signal that flashes or goes on and off that way you know if you have the voltage to it. You could have a neutral safety switch if automatic or a clutch inhibitor switch problem, but uncommon. You have to log into this online automotive repair manual at the library.
Again thanks for your help. I have replaced the ignition switch and the relay on the inside of the drivers fender well and still nothing. Chrysler installed the 833 four speed behind the Slant Six at two different times. You can try, lightly, tapping on the starter while trying to start. I happened upon this forum and joined in my search for info. This adjustment procedure is for vehicles using a mechanical switch located below the instrument panel, usually just above the brake pedal.
I also found another yard nearby that has a distributor and a few other parts, I'll check in the morning. In laymans terms the engine heat causes the fuel flow to stop. Nine times out of ten, the switch is simply out of adjustment. My philosophy in life has always been that the only dumb question is the one that never got asked. Anthony answered about a year ago Check your Ignition Module. The only way it runs is by spraying carb cleaner in the throtte body and the baby runs like a dream so I figure the converter is not clogged, and my spark plugs are good enough for it to start.
First was a 78 D100 slant 6. If you are looking to replace your truck tranny, you will need to find another one out of a truck that had the slant 6 engine for it to be a direct bolt up. I'm a guy that likes wrenching and trying to figure out a starting problem. You've got a poor connection, somewhere. Keep the engine running, and turn screw out counterclockwise a little at a time till you hear the idle dropping. Remember that if you have the door open while you're pulling fuses to tape the pillar switc … h down so it won't be a draw, that goes for a hood light also. An alternator won't keep it from starting.
