If you take off the air filter pan you should see the throttle body there is a series of connections it makes, kind of like a Rube Goldberg machine, ok not that complicated, but we would need to see where you are hanging to give a clear answer. Go check out a junk yard, mechanic shop or old car dealership maybe to see what an in tact connection looks like.

Is it dangerous if you have one mount to fix?

Potentially but they are cheap and easy to fix. the engine will tend to twist under torque so linkage etc. could bind. Just get a new one and you only have to raise it by balancer a few inches to get it in. Be careful though and look it up. YOU DO have to disconnect or loosen up a few things even when moving the block that slightly to allow for movement. The other side for example but do not take all the way out, trans mounts (same) etc etc. hard throtle linkage, shift linkage.

It is controlled by the computer and is not adjustable. If it is so slow that the engine wom't idle the idle control solonoid needs cleaning.

as you look at the throttle body (from the front of the vehicle) it is on the right side opposite the throtle linkage just under where the air tube from the air filter clamps to the throttle body. it has a two wire connector. yellow wire with a black tracer and a grey wire with a red tracer.

When you start your 1979 trans am the car runs wide open but the throtle works fine?

Have you checked the thermostat the car might just think its cold all the time. Check the linkage and make sure everything is loose and moving freely. I assume it has a 4 barrel carb. make sure the secondary are closing all the way.

What is wrong when you press the accelerator and the car doesn't respond?

The type of car would be helpful. Carb. or fuel injected? In either case it may be the cable or linkage is broken or disconnected. If fuel injected, the throtle position sensor may be bad or unplugged. If the car has been sitting, rodents could have chewed through a wire. Computer is bad.

There is a small vacuum line for accessories in the engine compartment on top of the throtle position sensor that comes off and will cause this problem. very small hose...look on the intake throtle body for the will have other vacuum hoses attached there also but this one is easily overlooked cause its so small. Hope this helps
