4.7L IDLING QUESTION

2006 Dodge Ram

2006 Dodge Ram 4.7L

On Christmas I left the family's house to go home, and my truck wouldn't accelerate properly, Well I found the Root of that problem, a Cat was stuck in my intake tube before the air filter, Well I found the cat I had heard a loud " pop" sound then my truck was idling very high, well the " pop" sound my the airbox on the top of the motor imploding. Now that I have Fixed the large hole in my intake, my truck is still idling very high and my CE light is on.

Any ideas?

I was figuring that the computer just sensed all that air is was getting and adjusted the throtle accordingly, do I just need to reset the computer? And if so, what is the best way to do so?

Thanks,
Tad

Inspect for vacuum leaks you can do this with a can of carb and choke cleaner just spray around intake area and listen for a change in rpm
