Fax sent are almost unreadable with a large black streek.

How do I clean the reader for the auto feed fax. I don't seem to have access to the problem--The Fax from Glass also adds a black streak, but not as bad.

That requires disassembing the machine to remove the scanner and then disassemble the scanner to clean the components.
It's quite a job.

How do i make my PDF scan document small enough to email

This is a problem with most of these Fax Scanner Printers. You will always end up with a large file, like 10 mb for a simple file. I think no matter what you do with the scan, it is large.
Turn the color off and make it gray scale or black and white.
The best way that I have found it to work the best is a work around. Find a free fax service or one that is a few dollars a month. Hopefully you have a fax component on this and you can fax documents to the online service, it will turn that fax into a very nice PDF. You then configure the online fax service to email the to you. Now you can save for your records, rename it and email it to whomever you need.

2" black horizontal line appears on paper when I fax, print,

Check the wondow where the paper passes to be scanned. You will probably find some debris or white out stuck on the glass. That is usually the cause of vertical lines on sent faxes.

Size of received/sent fax

you must have the reduction mode on in the fax section. This allows incoming faxes that are larger than the size paper you have available to be printed. You may have you paper set in a direction or size paper that is not the same as the fax being sent.

Received fax is unreadable or blurry
Please go through the checklist below to see if the suggested action(s) can resolve the issue.

* Make sure the copy function is working well.
* Print a Clean nozzle page from the Maintenance menu. If the printout has unexpected white or color horizontal streaks or missing portions, print the Clean nozzle page again. If you are still experiencing streaks or mission portions, you may need to replace your cartridge(s).
* The cartridges may need to be aligned.
* You may need to ask the sender to increase their fax quality.

Sent fax is unreadable or blurry.

1. If the receiving party indicates that the fax output is unreadable or blurry, you may want to try increasing the fax quality.
2. Check the scanner glass for excess amounts of smudges and/or fingerprints. If the scanner glass needs cleaning, moisten a clean, lint-free cloth and gently wipe the scanner glass. Make sure the scanner glass is dry before scanning the next document.
