release the cable adjustment clamp. Have someone hold the gas pedal to the floor. Lock the cable adjustment clamp and scratch a mark. This is your MAX adjustment mark. While still holding pedal all the way to the floor, release cable adjustment clamp and move it back 5/16". This is your MIN adustment mark. Adust cable to center of the two marks (pedal still floored).

The most common place for a PCV valve is on the valve cover.

To to adjust the throttle cable, first take off the air cleaner. Hold down the metal adjusting tab that is at the end of the cable.There is a sliding piece at the end of the cable, move it against the end. Let go of the adjusting tab then move the cable to the end.

It is screwed into the intake manifold between the throttle body and the valve cover

actually you need to have a transmission repair facility do that it will be the cheapest route for you.

if it is computer controlled then only the vacuum modulator can be adjusted. This will raise or lower mainline pressure in the trans. if it is hydraulically controlled, then you can also adjust the throttle pressure cable to increase or decrease throttle pressure

On a 1992 Acura Vigor idle is adjusted through a idle control valve. Tightening the valve well raise the lower the idle and loosening it will raise it.

The PCV valve on a 1992 Chevy 1500 350 is located on the intake manifold which is on the passenger side of the vehicle and to the right of the throttle. It has two bolts that hold it in place.

The Throttle Sensor responds to the accelerator pedal movement. This sensor is a kind of potentiometer which transforms the Throttle Valve position into output voltage, and emits the voltage signal to the ECU. In addition, the sensor detects the opening and closing speed of the Throttle Valve and feeds the voltage signal to the ECU.

On 1992-96 Mitsubishi Diamante's the idle control valve goes bad after some time. The car will idle real fast and bounce when you put it in gear,or idle very slowly to the point of dying if you don't give it gas . Adjusting the throttle will not correct the problem.Others suggest changing the throttle body,changing the mass air flow device (MAS sensor) among other suggestions.Usually it is the idle control valve. Remove and replace the idle contol valve,also called idle air valve,stepper valve ,stepper motor,ISC,etc. It is a small part located on the lower half of the rear of the throttle body. This is probably the easiest and also cheapest option of those mentioned above and it'll more than likely be the fix too,try it!

In 1992 the Ford installed manual transmissions in the Super Coupe ONLY, automatic was an extra cost option. Thunderbird, Thunderbird Sport, and Thunderbird LX, in V-6 or V-8 had automatic transmissions ONLY.

Your throttle valve switch (position sensor) is bad and need to be replaced.....this is located on the side of the throttle chamber. You can get this from Advance Auto for $60 and is easy to replace...
