F you are thinking of buying a used Chevrolet Spectrum be sure to see if there are any manufacture recalls for the car that you should be aware of. The NHTSA compiles a list of all reported problems from car owners all over the country and if there is a defective part, they will release a recall with instructions on how and where to get it fixed. Many times these fixes are free but be sure to check out the recall history of the cars you are interested in before you make your final decision.

It should have a base idle screw, and probably has an electric idle speed control motor that is adjustable.
You may need a shop manual to get the procedures.

1988 chevy spectrum dies when first excellerate from stop light

Did you change the fuel filter? Also if this could be temperature related, does the distance matter for the first stoplight? The O2 sensor may not be warm enough.

How about Vacuum? Use of Brake booster pulls down engine vacuum and you have ZIP when accelerating. Then loose gasket tightens up with engine heat and there is enough vacuum to eliminate the problem.

EGR slightly dirty, sticks until heated up?

I am curious, please send final results.

Did the 1988 Chevrolet 1 Ton come equiped with a smog pump

Yes they did, and I used to maintain a fleet of them for a certain lath and plaster business in the mid 90's and most of them that I serviced were from around 1987 to 1988 and all of them had a smog pump, and I also had to make sure that they all passed a bi-annual emission inspection.

Setting tdc after putting on new belt. Aligning the cam and crank marks.

You really need a manual to tell you where the marks are supposed to be in a picture. I recommend a hanes manual. They explaing everything in laymans terms. But TDC will take care of itself so long as you get all of the marks right.
