if that's the screw that you mess with when working on the tps then i've been messing with it the whole time. but just to clarify where is the screw located?

well, i found the pressure sensor but i couldn't find any screws around it. i did find a screw on top of the throttle body, looks like it's been messed with but i don't know what it does so i'm kinda hesitant on touching that.

Rich idle condition is normal for a stock ecu Rx-7. Do yourself a favor and get a mazda FSM, so you can correctly check and set the efi sensors.

unfortunantly i don't have the money for that right now. i gotta pay tuition in 2 days and i've also missed a day of tips at work because of this car and it seems like i'm going to miss another day today if i don't get it running in 2 hours.
