SOURCE: open gas cap on 1991 miata. can't find the lever

There is a lever to open gas cap in your miata. It should be in the center console between the seats. This is true for my 1990, and since the 1990-1997 Miatas remained virtually unchanged, this should be where it is.

Tanaka tbc-230 will only idle

That could be caused by anything from low fuel pressure to a restricted exhaust. Proper diagnostics need to be performed to eliminate many of the possibilities so the cause of the problem can be identified.

What's the sign of a bad cat converter on a 1999

If the cat is clogged, blocking exhaust flow, the car may start normally, and may run fine while the engine is cold. Within a few mins as engine warms it will start to bog down and die when you try to acellerate, even a little. May even die out if you give it gas, while it may idle just fine.
This has been my experice in 2 different cars of different types over the years.

99 kia sportage 2.0 ltr motor will idle but wont acellerate

You need to pull the codes to see what the codes are,it will narrow the problem down,it can be a bad throttle position sensor,or a mass air flow sensor,or the timing belt could have jumped a notch,and if the timing belt breaks,it will bend engine valves and cost a lot of money,so have it checked.
