Red face Setting Idle on Carburator

Hey, does anyone know where I can adjust the idle on my 98 ram 5.2? It's currently idling too low and keeps stalling? I've been told about the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor), but do not know if there's a way to adjust on this part. I've looked for a screw, and there doesn't seem to be one no where around the carb. Preciate any info anyone can provide. Thks

Idle speed is computer controlled with the IAC. You probably need to remove your throttle body and give it a good cleaning. Chekck out this thread. http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=46454

Default IAC

Thks for the info, however i don't believe my 5.2 has an IAC or don't know where's it's located, the info forum you referred me to, doesn't help much since everything looks different compared to my throttle body. I'll keep searching.

All fuel injected engines without electronic throttle control have one. If you check the link I posted, you'll see it.

The IAC is situated on the back side of the Throttle Body. The TPS is located on the drivers side. There is a sensor on the front of the TB whose name escapes me at the moment. Moral of the story is you only have three sensors on the TB and the IAC is one of them. Be careful when cleaning since it is fragile.
