The idle speed would not change if you unplug the IAC. It has a small electric motor that opens and closes the air port depending on a signal from the engine computer. The motor won't move if you unplug it.

I would not go to a place that did not have a service manual or know how to pull one off the internet.
You can find a Dodge Truck forum (just search on it) and gets lots of good information.

Get a new transmission as this one was made in China and once broken, it can't be repaired.

Remove the guide rail, open pinion port with Sentry tool. Withdraw link pin and shaft assemble and place it vertically on the drum side of the chassis. Pull the wheel housing and draw down the shift bushings. Pop out the jargon plate and dandelion scope. You are done.

You have already changed the components that would be my key suspects. Sounds like your best bet is a shop with an analyzer. Some small shops can do that for you for a lot less than the big dealers.

Good luck.

IAC ( idle air control ) location. You need to be sure to clean pintle (pointed end) of motor as well as spray clean inside port where it comes out of. Careful not to lose small "o" ring on motor.

A lot of vehicles will act the same, or even jump in and out of OD , not uncommon due to load on engine and if not running properly has to kick out of overdrive to maintain speed. Is your "check engine" light on, or have you scanned or cycled key to retrieve any trouble codes? You are aware that most parts stores will scan for codes free of charge ?

The TBI unit is going to be the route of your problem. Clean and inspect the insides of the unit. Next to the injector is the fuel pressure regulator. Either the injector pressure regulator has failed and is leaking, the o-ring that seals the regulator to the TBI has failed, or because of age and time. The housing itself has oxidized or cracked and is letting fuel leak into the throttle body. There are many different ways that the TBI unit can fail. An unmetered amount of air getting into the engine, low or no fuel pressure, or throttle linkage was sticking or broken, then there would be other symptoms. You provided a great description and list of symptoms. Please, when you have time, take a closer look at the TBI unit and let me know. If you have any other questions please write back and I'll do my best, good luck.

i just had this problem with my 93 dakota. my truck had a fuse in the same fuse block as the relays. i had to end up bypassing the relay with an inline fuse holder that i put a 20 amp fuse in i later found out that these trucks had a problem with the auto shutdown system that i was unable to figure out.

A mechanic would either replace the switch or check oil pressure with a mechanical gauge to verify.

Go down to the Auto Parts store and look at the replacement bolts (you will need to purchase them anyway).

Are they left-hand thread?

(You might just be tightening them instead of loosening them!)
