it seems no one knows about this valve but me!!!!!<br>its hard to explain whare its located<br><br>ok, the 'spring' that goes down when you accelerate, when you take foot off the spring will come back up, it is supposed to hit the valve and decelerate gradually, these valves normally dont wotk properly, ive seen a proper working one and it comes out about an inch...<br><br>it bolts onto the intakemanifold right beside the 'throttle linkage' i believe, hard to describe, its circlish? <p></p><i></i>

The screw your turning is the throttle stop screw. This screw is set and sealed at the factory and is the reference point for setting the throttle position sensor. By turning it you are making changes to the signal that the TPS sends to the ECU. I'm not sure thats a good idea. <br><br>The factory manual has this warning : <br><br> "CAUTION:<br> As throttle stop screw is factory adjusted precisely, don't remove or adjust it."<br><br> The throttle cable is adjusted by turning the nut at the end of the cable until there is between 3 and 5mm of deflection in the cabe <p></p><i></i>
