Your automatic choke isn't working properly or at all. If the vehicle is fuel injected (which it probably is) the fault could probably be traced to a faulty sensor somewhere. If the car is carburetted either the carburettor needs tuning or replacing. What you are doing right now is no problem, try not to rev the motor too hard though (rev it as little as possible without the motor stalling).

No, you can adjust them properly on the right side just before the rear diff lock pedal.

Above brake pedal on driver side of vehicle

The fluid is leaking from the master cylinder and running back towad the pedal. Replace the master cylinderanswerchange master cylinder and slave properly then bleed the system properly.

There are "steps" on the choke cam that pull the gas pedal up to a high speed idle when the choke is on. If you don't step on the gas pedal once before starting, the carburator/choke assembly cannot function properly.

Any time the brake pedal is hard to press then you need to check and see if the brake booster is functioning properly.

First, check the obvious things...is there a battery in the pedal? is the adaptor you're using working? is you guitar lead plugged in properly? are all the leads plugged in properly? volume up? leads working properly? if all this stuff checks out then there may be something wrong with the components inside the pedal, in which case take it to a guitar technician to be fixed. it may be something simple and relatively cheap to fix.

If you are unable to press in the button to move the shifter. Replaces the brake switch connected to the brake pedal.

Why not? I used logitech driving wheel pedal as wahwah pedal before getting a real one

THey were powered by a foot-pedal.

It is located on the brake pedal, behind the fuse box. There are two similar switches, one on top of the other. The top one is for the cruise control and the lower one is for the brake pedal. You can just break off the old one and then properly insert the new one, making sure that the tabs actually snap into the slot on the pedal.

The adjustment is made on the clutch cable, near where it connects to the tranny.

Normally you don't touch the gas pedal , just turn your ignition key

assuming clutch linkage is properly adjusted, holding foot on clutch pedal while driving, letting the clutch pedal out too slowly starting out in a higher gear than 1st

This is probly because your brake pedal is going down for enuf to turn on your brake lights, deactivating your cruise.You can try adjusting you brake pedal adjustment, which is located under the dash. But unless you do this properly, you might end up with an ABS system not working, or your brakes having slight pressure, even thou you arent pressing on the brake pedal. The end result is that you can burn your brakes out. You can take it to a dealer, and have them properly adjust it.

About 5 minutes at a comfortable pace.It depends on how fast you pedal.

It can be a noun "a pedal" or a verb "to pedal".

Bleeder screws would be on the bottom of caliper-making complete air evacuation either difficult or impossible resulting in a spongy pedal

Assuming the front and rear brakes have been bled properly and if the vehicle has rear drum brakes, that the rear brakes are adjusted properly, with engine off and vacuum depleted from the booster, the pedal should drop aprox 1/4 of its total travel distance with firm but not extreme foot pressure.

if the vehicle has hydraulic brakes, pump the brake pedal three times. them apply firm pressure to the pedal and hold for five seconds. the pedal should not move. if it does, there may be a leak or other problem. get it fixed before driving.

Pedals are effects. Distortion pedal, Delay pedal, Reverb pedal, Phaser pedal, etc. They all do different things.

First make sure the service brakes are adjusted properly Adjustment will either be at the junction of the 3 cables under the vehicle or at the pedal itself Set pedal at 3 clicks and the wheels should be locked at that point
