My pontiac engine get dead every time i release the gas pedal or slowing down even in neutral, i tried to look for idle adjustment but i dont know where it is located. also sometimes the gear is stock up...

Don't try to adjust the idle speed. Very very bad thing to do. Have your idle air control unit checked. Probably shot, or carbonrd up. Also have your throttle body cleaned.As far as the shifting goes, have the shifter interlock checked. These are both things that are better left to pros, as the diagnosis requires special equipment, and information.

Hi, just a question to see if I could tighten my emergency brake on my car so it will pass inspection. Currently, when i pull my ebrake it pulls all the way up instead of 1/2-3/4 of the way. I just dont...

Hello msn19000: My name is Roger and I will help. The adjustment is something you can do yourself. Look at the park brake lever and locate the adjusting nut on the left side of the lever. tighten a turn or two. Just enough to allow the lever to move six or seven clicks. Make sure the brakes do not stay aplied when you release the brake lever. THis should enable your car to pass the state inspection. How ever if you can not achive a brake that holds the car. You may need to adjust or replace the reat brakes. This would require some one with experience to replace the brake shoes. See the attached picture of brake lever to locate the adjusting nut.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. This way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger071ddd1.jpg

Hello I have a 1980 Ford Bronco 351 2bbl. Wondering if anyone knows which screws adjust what? Please if anyone has any ideas please respond. Thank you.

Here are some images that might help to assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

Adjust the curb idle with the engine warmed up and the choke off.


The air/fuel mixture screws should be adjusted with the engine warmed up and at normal idle speed, then turn each air/fuel mixture screw in one at a time until the engine just begins to mis-fire, then back the air/fuel mixture screw out 1-1/2 to 2 turns out a half a turn at a time until the engine idle is the smoothest. (your vehicle might have restrictor caps over the air/fuel mixture screws to limit the amount of adjustment)



The choke adjustments;



To adjust the vacuum tension pull on the choke pull-off:


Adjust the fast idle screw to the proper RPM with the engine cold and the choke on.

I have replaced the fuel pump on this 92 Ford Ranger. I put a fuel pressure gauge on the truck. It will idle for about 20 seconds with the pressure running between 70 and 80 psi. After a few seconds, the...

The mechanic should check on the idle .Because the Idle of the truck is adjusting by it self . That causes the truck to stop .check the Idle then lock it up to so that it will not adjust until it will make the truck stop .the main reason why the truck stop and pressure guage going down steadily is that no fuel enters the fuel pump when it adjust Idle by it self . It adjust by closing way or blocking the fuel to pass and go to the engine.then the engine dies .

I have a 4runner 1994 v6 do I turn down the idel

You need to adjust the timing on the belts. This can be adjusted with a wrench. Adjustments should be made with slight measurements, a hair can change it. After adjustment, turn the car off and restart. Drive for a block and see where the RPM goes to when at idol. Keep adjusting until you get around 700-1,000 RPM.
Let me know if this helps.
