Well the first thing is to check the plugs and set them to 25thou, clean and set the points to 12 thou on the high lip on the cam.remove the vacuum hose from the distributor
Now set the timing mark on the harmonic balancer to TDC, and refit the cap NOW start engine run to 1000 rpm and turn the distributor to the left a little till it starts to run rough,then to the right the same in between the left and right it should be the best place to tighten up the clamp on the distributor and then refit the vacuum hose test run .
If it has a ping when throttling up then you need to turn the distributor forward just a little.
Let me know how you get on . RON

Why do my stop are die on me and what kinda oil is better for my car and what kinda gas is better


For oil 10w 30 or 10w 40 as for the brand it doesnt matter as long as it is API, as for gas 87 octane you dont need anything different, why does it stall when you stop? IAC, the idle air control this is a stepper motor that maintain desired idle, well it wears out it has to extend and retract you are going to have to replace it, unless you can extend the pintle and idle it up but if you do that you will be wondering where the cheapest gas is at

87 camry. we're replaced the starter, distributor


If you are trying to get the car to start easier you still may be venting through the gas line or gas cap. The new fuel line may solve the problem. What you still can do is replace the gas cap.
Both Autozone and O'reilly will test your car free. The system on an 87 model may not generate a trouble code on your dash for the problem you have. But the test gauge may show it.
If the car has zip the fuel pump may be okay. If the car fast idles briefly when cold, the cold start system is working. If the car does not idle up, the cold start system is not resetting.

High idle


In most cases with Toyota they will only go in one way and are not adjustable. High idle is a sign of a possible vacuum leak or incorrectly adjusted throttle cables

Hello

Are you want to take revenge. Let me know if you are.

I am not expertise in solving case for Car.

Sorry, My mistake, I take it in wrong. I think you are expertise in Computer and Hardware, So I had asked the question from you.

  • ABOUT: VL Commodore... good looking car.
1 First generation (1978–1988)
  • 1.1 VB
  • 1.2 VC
  • 1.3 VH
  • 1.4 VK
  • 1.5 VL
2 Second generation (1988–1997)
  • 2.1 VN
  • 2.2 VP
  • 2.3 VR
  • 2.4 VS
3 Third generation (1997–2006)
  • 3.1 VT
  • 3.2 VX
  • 3.3 VY
  • 3.4 VZ
4 Fourth generation (2006–present)
  • 4.1 VE

In my opinion your car is around 1978 make.

A Brief Introduction of VL Commodore:
Marking a high point in terms of sales, the last-of-the-series VL Commodore sold in record numbers, finally managing to outsell the Ford Falcon in the private sector.The 1986 VL represented a substantial makeover of the VK and would be the last of the mid-size Commodores. Designers distanced the Commodore further away from its Opel origins, by smoothing the lines of the outer body and incorporating a subtle tail spoiler. A thorough redesign of the nose saw the Commodore gain sleek, narrow headlamps and a shallower grille, while the Calais specification employed unique partially concealed headlamps.

By this stage, Holden’s 30 year old six-cylinder was thoroughly outmoded and would have been difficult to re-engineer to comply with pending emission standards and the introduction of unleaded fuel. This led Holden to sign a deal with Nissan to import their RB30E engine. This seemed a good idea in 1983 when the Australian dollar was strong; however by 1986 the once viable prospect became rather expensive. The public quickly accepted what was at first a controversial move, as reports emerged of the improvements in refinement, 33 percent gain in power and 15 percent better economy. An optional turbocharger appeared six months later and lifted power output to 150 kilowatts (200 hp). In October 1986, an unleaded edition of Holden’s carburettored V8 engine was publicised. Holden had originally planned to discontinue the V8 to spare the engineering expense of converting to unleaded. However, public outcry persuaded them to relent. VLs in New Zealand were also available with the 2.0 litre six-cylinder RB20E engine.
Negative points:

The VL suffered from some common build quality problems, such as poor windshield sealing, that can lead to water leakages and corrosion. Awkward packaging under the low bonnet meant the six-cylinder engine was especially susceptible to cracked cylinder heads, a problem not displayed on the Nissan Skyline with which it shares the RB30 engine. The Used Car Safety Ratings, published in 2007 by the Monash University Accident Research Centre, found that first generation Commodores (VB–VL) provide a "worse than average" level of occupant safety protection in the event of an accident.

I think it is sufficient information, as per your question.

Let me know if you wish to know more about your Car. (:P)

Best of Luck & Regards
