It's a 92 Plymouth laser 1.8 none turbo, wont start when cold..will only idle. Once it gets some heat in it, it runs and starts fine. It threw 3 codes, volume Air Flow senor, intake air temperature sensor,...

91 Camaro RS with 3.1 engine. Last couple of days it has been racing when started, tach runs to 4000 RPM. Shut the engine of and restart a couple of times and it is ok. Today is started same thing except...

Code 12 is normal when engine is not running and adl is to ground ... I would have a look around for broken or disconnected vacuum lines ... Another possible is a stuck idle air control motor.

Constant misfire,(hunting) have changed,plugs,leads distributer,injectors,timing checked,no air leaks,no codes showing.CO% 8.5

Hello! I suspect that the vehicle has a defective Throttle Position Sensor (TPS)...It is mounted on the throttle body...You can locate it by its wire colors...Black, White, and Pink/Black...If you have knowledge of a voltmeter, you can test it...Locate the sensor...push the end of a paper clip into the rear of the connector on the Black wire and another into the White wire...
With the car at idle put the negative meter probe on the Black and the positive on the White...Set the scale on the meter to read 1-5 volts...At idle you should read less than 1 volt...Have someone slowly increase engine speed...The voltage should rise to 4 volts without jumping, or erratic needle movement...If the voltage skips, jumps, or acts erratic the TPS is defective...

Just put new motor in 2001 mazda 626 v6 no check engin light on but surges and has no power any ideas

Hello! The Throttle Positioning sensor (TPS) is the likely culprit...It is mounted to the throttle body and has a three wire connector...
Wire colors are Green/Red. Violet/Yellow and Black/Yellow. The connector may not be fully seated, or has an open wire...If it passes a visual inspection you can test with a voltmeter...With connector in place...And engine at idle...Set volt meter to measure 1 - 4 volts without changing scales...If meter probes will not fit the rear of the connector push in paper clips...connect + meter probe to Violet/Yellow...and - probe to Green/Red...You should read less than 1 volt at idle...Slowly increase engine speed...Voltage should rise to 4 volts SMOOTHLY...If it jumps, jerks or acts erratically The TPS is defective...Send a comment with results.....Guru...........saailer

Im trying to find the optimal settings for my two bbl carb

You will need a vacuum and Tach meter guage, when the highest vaccum/RPM reading is reached the air fuel is near perfect, make sure you start lean and slowly turn the mixture screws out ( or in depending on carb type) evenly, reset idle speed if ness, as it can increase allot. In order to meet emission tests and get better fuel economy I would lean each screw 1/4 turn from best vaccum/RPM setting. Also verify the ignition timing is correct before any adjustment is made and engine is at operating temp.
