It's fine I did a similar job on a 2003 model recently. I kid car. Luckily, I didn't have any bent valves to deal with.

You need to do a wiggle test. The clutch cables on that particular car is a real pain, and for someone who hasn't done it before, it's really easy to screw up wiring.

All new vehicles come with what is called an "adjustment ...

It's hard to diagnose without more information, but it could be that your throttle plate was stuck open. This might explain: the engine revving even after the engine coming to a stop (fuel injection management compensates for more air by adding more fuel) the feeling that the engine is running rough (misfiring in the event of a lean condition, while the ...

The Purge is controlled by the PCM with a pulse width modulated switch signal. It is normal for it to cycle rapidly. This allows small amounts of the fuel vapor to be metered into the cylinders. This method allows the system maintain fuel control. One of the main jobs of the evaporative control system purge valve is to maintain a slight negative pressure ...
