Engine Performance problem
1989 Dodge Omni 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 80,000 miles
I have an 89 dodge omni (automatic) 2.2 liter straight 4, with possibly 80k+ (meter is possibly broken). When the car runs " even after letting run for a short while" the car has a high idle in park of between 1500 and 2000 rmps which go up and down (vaccum leak?). I've had this problem before with a 95 saturn sw2, and the mechanic told me " he cleaned out the manifold and the throttle body of carbon"
also when I drive the car it clunks into gear and drives much faster than normal, but ill note that the accelerator pedal might need to be replaced since it is very loose
