Air fuel is adjusted by the car's computer and cannot be manually adjusted unless you purchase chips to then re-write code to adjust the mixture amount other parameters. Google Sharktuner by JDS Porsche for more information.

How do I adjust the CO and fuel/air mixture

the CO and fuel/air mixture is not adjustable on modern cars , only on carburettors . the engine management system will ensure correct fuelling, if there is a fault with this then in most cases an engine management light will illuminate on the dash board

How do I adjust air fuel mixture on 1986 Toyota Cressida straight 6 cylinder dohc

Unless your engine has a carburetor, you can't adjust your fuel mixture. That is done by your cars computer. It analyzes your exhaust emissions and adjusts your fuel/air ratio.
Your oxygen sensor(s) may need to be replaced, or there may be a computer glitch causing the problem.

The surge you experience will be the air/ fuel mixture adjusting to normal from the extra air from the brake booster. With you economy so low during winter I would be checking the fault codes for faults in the air/fuel system as it should get better as cold air has more oxygen content so more power with less fuel. There is only a rich mixture used while the engine is warming up and once at operating temperature then that rich mixture is reduced to normal mixture

Wat do a fuel air metering do to a car if it not working

If you mean the O2 sensor, it sends a signal to the computer telling it if the fuel mixture is rich or lean. The computer adjusts the fuel injectors to correct the mixture.
Code 1193 is for a sensor that is not switching back and forth between rich and lean. Sometimes the problem is the O2 sensor and sometimes not.
You could unplug the sensor and the engine would still run.

How do i adjust the rich/lean fuel mixture cracked intake

You can't do it with out a tech 2 scanner, so your going to have to go back to the Mechanic to have it reprogrammed. As long as it's running rich, your going to have bad fuel economy and will not pass the emission test when you have to have it done. Good luck and glad to know you got your car running almost 100%

Gas mixture

I don't know what year you are working with, but I have an 87 that was doing the same thing. I converted the air filter to a K&N system and did away with the old filter box. The problem did not go away. I talked to a Toyota specialist and he told me in the top of the mass flow sensor there is a plug that you need to drill out. There is an adjustment screw that regulates the air mixture with the gas. It is located on top of the mass air flow sensor that connects to your air filter box.
