If the car has the original Rochester carb on it, the filter is inside it. Follow the fuel line to the carb. There you will see what looks like a large hex nut. Loosen that and inside there is the filter available at any auto parts store.

Remove the bolts, remove offending fan and replace with new one

There is an idle adjustment at the carb. Look where the accelerator pulls the butterfly stop and you will see an adjustment screw.

The fuel filter for that model and year is found in the carburetor. Follow up the fuel line from the fuel pump and you will find a large nut fitting that the line threads into. Remove this and you will find a cartridge filter.

There are 2 fuel lines that need to be removed from the pump and 2 bolts. When putting it back on make sure the arm goes under the lobe, you will have to apply a little pressure to the pump to install it.

Replace the PVC valve, and also check that the hose that the pcv plugs into has vacuum. If not, then remove the hose, clean or replace, and at that point, it will be necessary to remove the carburetor and clean out the circuits underneath- either the base plate, or bottom of the carburetor.

You can find a power window wiring diagram for your 1977 through 1979 Pontiac Trans Am in Pontiac service manuals. The service manuals can be found at most local libraries.

If it's equipped with a quadrajet, you probably need to unhook the fuel line going to the carb and remove the large hex fitting that screws into the carb. the filter is in that housing.

No...The Grand Prix is a G-body car and the Parisienne is a B-Body. Completely different.

To get a 400 Pontiac Motor in 1979, you had to also get the 4 speed. Pontiac last manufactured 400 motors in 1978 but saved some from 1978 for use in the 1979 model. Those motors were used in the 1979 4 speed cars only. 1979 Automatics had the Oldsmobile 403. You could also get a turbo version too. All of which could come with auto trans. I worked on many of these at the Pontiac dealer.

The possible reasons why your 1979 620 Datsun may backfire pass 4000 RPM's may be because because either, you need to replace the fuel filter, clean the fuel injectors, run supreme gas( due to age of the car), replace spark plugs, ignition coil may be disconnected, ignition rotor may be scarred (about a $5.00 part)and need to be replaced, replace pcv valve ,replace air filter or timing may be off. See available supplemental information regarding engine diagnosis at related link.
