: My engine won't idle. It dies as I let off the throttle. She runs perfect at both part throttle and wide open blasts. The engine will not keep running as you let off the gas and brake for a stop. It also dies in the driveway. Also, the truck re-starts nicely as it always has. The choke and warm-up systems are operating as they should considering the average temp is in the Ninties + in the day where I live.
So far none of these remedies have had any affect......
Removed the gas cap.
Replaced the fuel fiter.
All the plug wires, plugs, cap and rotor are 1 month old.
Removed the air cleaner and plugged the vac lines,
The power brake booster line has been plugged at the intake manifold.
The EGR valve line has been removed and plugged.
The carb's Idle Cut Solenoid System is working, but the very small o-ring inside is shrunk and may not be good (I am gonna check the dealer on Monday for the o-ring, but I am not exactly sure if this on-the-carb system is passive or not).
The sight glass in the carb is showing a normal fuel level at all times.
ANY ideas would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

have you checked the gasket between the carb and the manifold.

i have to fix one on my sisters honda. it keeps dieing because of this. i hate hondas to many stinking tubes!

or you could check and replace all the hoses.
thats about the only thing i know about on carbs. fuel injection is my friend on trucks! <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce2.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce2.gif" border="0">

I had just mentioned that I removed and plugged the EGR line. Uggh! I meant I removed and plugged the PCV valve line! I am gonna attack the EGR tomorrow.

The o ring for the fuel cutoff solenoid is probably sucked into the carb. pull off the air cleaner reomove the fuel cutoff solenoid and send a light blast of compressed air though the hole it scewed into. you will probably see the chunk of o ring shoot out of the top of the carb. you can take another oring out of another carb and replace it or leave it out and your engine will deisel after you shut it off every now and then.

Either crap got into the carb from the bad o-ring on the soloniod or your idle circuit is plugged, remove the idle air/fuel adj screw, blow some air down it, if that don't work, your stuck OH the carb...

No...Haven't figured it out yet. The EGR system is fine, so I am still stumped! So what was your cure?

try drilling out the plug that caps off the idle air/fuel mixture screw it is likely that a piece of carbon or other foreign object is caught in between the screw and seat...my truck had an awful idle util I drilled it took out the screw sprayed the hole with carb cleaner to clean the seat as well as lightly..carefully cleaned the needle portion of the screw....What a big difference that made....if that doesn't help I would do a diagnostic on the fuel solenoid (since you say EGR is fine) as well as check vacuum lines with carb spray or starting fluid and replace fuel filter .
