    come on guys, what you think we spend are life studying Mech abbreviations
    ^^That^^ post has a bit too much of a snappy attitude to it. How are we to know that you don't know the meanings of the acronyms, AND that you're unwilling to invest a VERY small amount of effort on your part, to simply look up their definitions? We can't read your mind. Just don't expect to get more information than what you ask for, and if you have a question, word it a bit nicer.

    Lack basic thinking? Be nicer and help people out? Take a look through my nearly 10,000 posts, then tell me how many "bad comments" I've posted.

    If you still want help, use the link I posted to find the acronym definitions. They're all in there.

    Re: dropping rpm when brake

    well common leak on all cateras coming from secondary injection air pump it self, that located under driver side front bumper, if u start you car and its sounds like some one turn on vacuum cleaner out side, thats your pump got unsealed, its easy fix, new pump cost like $400, fix is like $4!
    To fix it u have to take down horn that next to the pump, then pump it self. u will see how rivits (that factory used) snap off. so i used long thin bolts (approx 2in long) with small nuts, its like 6 of them there. i did it like 2 years ago!

    OK I no longer have my idle jumping, I found the problem by accident, I put my hand under the [COLOR="#FF0000"]Idle Control Valve 0280140567
    and my finger happen to cover a crack which was a vacuum leak, I repace it with one I got on e-bay $40.00 and my idle dosn.t jump anymore, check yours out.vacum.jpg

    Cool. But I don't have that valve.... My intake manifold looks different.
    Smacas throttle position sensor. I don't have it. If I'm not mistaken its all togather in my throttle body.
