IAC is changed. The truck now idles smoothly but still pops and sputters ~2000 rpm. It does seem to run slightly better though. The old IAC was extremely dirty and caked with ~1/16 inch of gunk.

Sorry, but what does K3 mean?

Also, to update, I have figured out that if I drive it out of the driveway, shut it off, then reset the computer, it runs fine almost every time. I thought about...

Port and polish isn't that hard to do yourself. All you need is a good die grinder or even a dremel will probably work. I've done it on my drag car heads and could definitely notice a difference. The...

It has 76k miles on it. I did a pressure test on the fuel rail and it was ~50# so I wouldn't think it would be the fuel pump or the filter sock. The motor seems to surge when idling also if that...

So, I unhooked #1 and #2 injectors and it made absolutely no difference in the way it is running. That means injectors are clogged. Are there any good threads on cleaning injectors?

Does it pop and sputter? Mine shakes too. It kinda lunges repeatedly, misses, and sputters until I let off the gas or go to wide open throttle. If that sounds like yours, I'm trying to figure it out...

Changed cap and rotor. No dice. What is the K3 technique? I will try resetting the ECM. Do I leave the key on when I connect the battery again?

I bought a 2001 Ram from my step dad. It had been sitting for about a year with no battery in it. It ran fine when he parked it. Now, it misses, sputters, and sometimes pops when the motor is loaded....
