1986-2.3 unstable at idle!

My 86, 2.3 carb model won't hold idle. It cycles from about 1000 RPM to just above stalling. Auto tranny, original carb, fuel pump, and alternator. Anyone out there have any ideas?

Likely your carb is out of adjustment or needs rebuilding.
Buy you a Haynes or Chilton manual for your vehicle and check it out.
