How do you fix racing idle on a 1988 Ford Ranger 2.3?
Alot of times a racing idle is caused by an airleak after the carb. or throdle body. check to see if the PCV (postive crank vent) is disconnected. Alot of times these are located, depending on madel, on the top of the valve cover near the fire wall, or under the intake just behind the distributor. It's not easy to see, but often the vac. line will crack.

How do you adjust the idle on a 1994 Ford Mustang without a distributor?
The screw on the side throttle body If its not a PCM with electronic engine idle control. Most of today veichles you can not adjust idle. What motor do you have cummins? Like can people be a little more specific?? Pull the Spout Connector Before changing Idle Screw and make sure its up to operating temp then turn the idle screw on the Throttlebody.Replace the Spout Connector then all should be well,If you disconnect the Battery for any length of time you must remove the Spout Connector again to allow it to Relearn the Position.

Through the carburetor or advance or retard the distributor by turning the distributor cap barely left or right. If you cant turn it then loosen the bolt holding the distributor on to the intake with a wrench then turn the distributor til the engine sounds like its not missing or not to where it's about to turn off.

How do you change the distributor in 94 Chevy van g20 350 motor?
The distributor is held down with one bolt, a 9/16 box wrench with a 20-30 degree bend, is needed to remove this bolt. I used a propane torch to heat the wrench red hot, then bending it on a vise to custom fit the area of the distributor. The distributor pulls straight up. Make sure you mark reference points on the engine and old distributor. Transfer this reference point to the new distributor via eyeballing, to avoid changing the timing. Also, make note of which direction the rotor is pointing. If you're changing the cap, rotor and wires, have the firing order on hand to avoid crossing the wires. Always, check the timing with a light when changing the distributor.

How to set time on 94 s10 blazer 4.3 vortex. where is the dist. bypass wire locate.?
The distributor by-pass wire, seems to be the wire that runs from the distributor to the ECM module. Just disconnect it and retime, then plug it back in. If you have checked Top Dead Center on number 1 piston then all you have to do is move the distributor cap by untightening the 9/16's bolt below the distributor housing. This will allow you to rotate the distributor with the cap on to increase or decrease the rpm's at idle. You will need to tighten the bolt holding the distributor metal plate down after Idle is running smooth or the distributor will move when the vehicle is shut off. To remove the wire from the back of the ECM (Electronic Control Module) you will need to remove the distributor cap and two connectors that run to the coil pack from the distributor.
