    A mechanic has serviced my 1990 Ford Taurus SHO because I had a leak in a hose at the rear of my engine/firewall. He improvised a few hoses (non factory hoses) , and connected two long hoses on firewall from top to bottom. Is this the proper connection of flow for my heater core and if not , how do I bypass ?

    Smallest hose coming from the top of the crank case is leaking oil, I know you have the throttle cable in front on top then right at the muffler there are 2 hoses 1 hose that is 1/4 or so in size and the smaller hose which is about
    6" in length this is the hose that is leaking engine oil, it appears to connect to something but I cannot find what it connects too.

I have a1999 VW Passat 1.8L and the problem is as follows: when I hit the gas pedal car idiles fine but when you let go of the pedal you could see on the Tach. how the idiling bounces up and down until it...

Generally this is due to carbon build up on the throttle body butterfly. Carbon builds around the bore of the throttle body and the airflow is difficult for the engine control module to control.
Take the rubber boot off of the throttle body (it's held on with a hose clamp with a screw that can be loosened with either a philips head screwdriver or 7mm socket) and use carburetor cleaner and a rag to clean the throttle plate and the bore that it sits in. To make this easier, remove the coolant resevoir (3 phiips head screws). Just disconnect the connector on the bottom of the resevoir, don't disconnect any hoses.
When you are done, turn the key to on, don't start the car, and press the gas pedal to the floor and hold it there for 5 seconds. This helps the ECM learn the range of the throttle plate.
You should have this all fixed up for under 5 bucks.

I have found engine oil in the throttle body on 1994 toyota tercel

it may be the pcv valve ( positive crankcase ventilation) that needs replaced. if a pcv valve fails, it will put oil in air cleaner or throttle body. check to be sure hose to valve is not clogged up. its only about a 5.00 part. have a good one !!

2001 Galant won't stay on.

Looks like gum and carbon deposits have clogged some critical parts in the engine, such as injectors.
You would need to get to the 'throttle-body'.
1. Trace the big intake-air hose to where it ends on top of the engine. This is the throttle -body.
2. Loosen the clamp that's holding the big-intake air hose. Pull off the intake air hose from the throttle-body.
3. Spray some "Throttle Body & Carburettor cleaner into the throttle-body. You could use the entire can.
4. Wipe off excess gas from the throttle-body with a piece of rag.
5. Reconnect the intake air hose, and check if the
problem has disappeared.

My daughters 1990 buick regal custom has started running rough and stalling out any sugestions?

First, have your daughter listen for vacuum leaks (young females generally have the best high frequency hearing) They will sound like a very high pitched whistle. Next, look for vacuum hoses that are damaged and leaking. Next, clean the throttle body. Remove the hose that goes from the air cleaner to the throttle body. Hold the throttle plate open and spray some throttle body cleaner (available at an auto parts store) in and scrub with an old toothbrush -- don't forget the top. There are other things, but these are the easy, common, obvious first tries.

Feels like my 280 has a vacuum leak it is idling rough and the air keeps blowing slow then fast any ideas?

the best way to find a vacuum leak is to buy throttle body cleaner as it is combustible, if you spray around the hoses and manifold base and you see that the engine idle goes up or down you have found you vacuum leak. a lot of times on old cars, the hoses start deteriorating with age and heat.

I have a 1994 vw caravelle. after i start it the rpm goes up and down and before warming it tent to that the engine may stop. please help.

First look for a vacuum leak in all the vacuum hoses leading to the throttle body and on the intake manifold itself. Sometimes it helps to use a piece of hose as a makeshift stethoscope to listen for tell-tale hissing at the site of a leak. If no leaks are found the problem could lie in a faulty idle air control valve
