When I put it in reverse it goes dead. the idle is too low, so I am using my foot for brake and idle when I come to stops. What the heck? Sensors? Air Idle? Let me know whatcha think a chic...

Chic Mechanic, I like that. Take and smear the grease from your fingers on your face like war paint and let out a Zenna yell.

The IAC could have some carbon build up on it, or not working properly. Unplug it and see if the motor just dies. You can also remove it and clean any carbon off. Also carbon can build up on the EGR and keep it open a little bit. And check your ignition timing. If you have an under hood label it should give instuctions and specs. It should tell you there is a tan (or tan with black stripe) single wire that needs to be unplugged. I don't recall the exact location but it will be in the large computer harness (usually sticking out of the loom) under the hood where it goes into the truck or under the dash near the ECM.

1992 Mercedes 190E: there is a constantly-runnung air circulation motor somewwhere under the dash; it is wextremely noisy on a cold morning, and I just want to give the motor bearing a shot of lubricant....

think again its under the hood behind the fire wall it should be 6 hex head screw to remove the black panel this is a time consuming job so i would replace the part instead of waisting your time with lube if you want i have the part you need let me know

My Heater is not working in my 2003 Honda Element

First check and confirm the fuses related to heater in your car.Fuse #12 (40A) in the under-hood box powers the blower motor. Fuse #14 (10A) in the under-dash box powers the blower motor relay as well as the A/C compressor clutch relay, A/C condenser fan relay, power mirrors, radiator fan relay, recirc. control motor, and rear defogger relay.If the fuses are blown then replace the fuse and check.But if the problem is still there then Its a heater relay problem,.The blower motor relay is in the under-hood fuse box. It's larger than the rest, on the back side, labeled RY6.Remove the relay. With the ignition off, use a 12V tester to locate the constant-power socket, which powers the motor via the relay. Then with the ignition on, locate the switched-power socket, which powers the relay. Verify that neither of the remaining two sockets is powered, then with the ignition off use a continuity light to determine which is ground. The last socket goes to the motor. (If the continuity tester lights on both, it's probably because the motor has fairly high resistance, and you'll need an ohmmeter to determine which socket is ground and which goes to the motor.)With a fused 12V power source, power the relay's coil contacts and check the other two contacts for continuity. If the relay doesn't work, replace. But if the relay is also checked ok.then in that case the blower motor is faulty causing this problem.Make sure it has power at the connector and that the connector is properly seated. If the power and ground connections are fine, then the motor is bad. ----------- This troubleshooting procedure will help you to confirm the possible problem.Thanks.Helpmech.

Set timming

You will need a timing light for Hi energy ignition as well as standard socket set or wrenches. 1. get the engine up to operating temp. 2 shut off engine connect the timing light to the number one[1] spark plug wire at the spark plug end connect battery connectors. 3 start engine and note location of pointer on the mark tab on the timing cover. 4 shut off engine loosen the hold down clamp on the distributor turn the bolt no more than one full turn[snug is better than loose here] then note the position of the dist. cap. Move the dist. to make sure it moves freely replace back to the starting position and remove and plug the vaccum line to the dist. 5 start engine and set timing to the desired spec. 6 shut off engine tighten dist. clamp bolt 7 start engine check timing one more time to see if still there at desired setting. 8 shut off engine dis-connect all tools and light
