It\'s fuel injection, not jets that need to be cleaned. You can spray carb cleaner up into throttle body, and I\'d replace spark plugs/wires first, maybe also fuel filter.

I have a pw50 it starts fine and runs fine but doesn't seem like it has any power it barely pulls itself when I run my nitro fuel from my rc car through it it does a lot better but still not very good...

Its probably getting too much or too little fuel or air. if the intake filter and passage are clean, then you might wanna get a kit to rebuild the carb. There's a little jet that allows a certain amount of fuel in and the arm that holds it can bend over time making lack accel during rev. when you pull it apart it looks kind of like a mini metal pencil generally with a rubber tip. you need to the kit to fix it, but sometimes old gasket will come apart.

Car starts but only runs smooth when not giving much gas then it dies alot while driving to get it to start i have to cycle the key switch unyill i hear the fuel pum bild up preasure

that's would be the fuel pump dying slowly, you should replace it before it leaves you stranded some place. If you wish to do this on your own please message me back and i will give you detailed instructions on how to preform this operation on the 97' Chevy Cavalier.

My son found a small amount of oil in the hose between the manifold and the air filter. there was not any oil in the air filter is this a serious problem or expensive to fix? the car has a10030thou miles...

the small amount of oil found is just an oil mist from the manifold that is drawn up while the car is running.this is not uncommon and a small amount is nothing to be concerned.

My 1987 Toyota Tercel will not run. It will start, but wont stay crunk unless im giving it gas. I check for vacuum leaks and no sucess.?

if you have a carburator then you have a blocked idle jet, simple job unscrew **** dirt out clean jet hole through, replace, (change or fit fuel filter to prevent it happening again. )
to tune is simple replace jet start motor and warm up . when at operating temp turn jet out and then in till motor runs rough then screw back out til motor smooth out , and runs sweet, if it cuts out when slowing car down (while driving) screw need to come out a slight bit more

First step here is to have the engine control module scanned for fault codes.
