Default Sidekick Vacuum Leak

My daughter took my sidekick to the mechanic after having problems with it starting up and I got it back with a vacuum leak and the neutral parking safety switch bypassed. The mechanic apparently just did a quick fix and jumpered the wires going to the safety switch.

I found the vacuum leak easy because it's so loud and all I had to do was place my finger over this hole what I found out to be the Hot Idle RPM Air Bleed Screw which is missing.

My car is idling up and down now and maybe this is related. Can anyone tell me if you have an Air Bleed Screw where this hole is? I found a picture of this online but it says that some models apparently don't have one but mine must because why would there just be a hole there with a loud vacuum leak.

Here is a link to the picture I found after searching forever. I can't find any youtube videos or photos of any other close ups.

Please let me know if you have this screw and know where to find this part.

Here is a link to another image of this Air Bleed Adj screw I have missing. Please check your sidekicks and let me know if you have one and send me a pic. I might need to find one ASAP.

91 is a crossover year, and it's possible that you do not have that screw. My car is the same year as yours - there is no screw there, just a closed off 'stud' in that depression. I took a photo, but have to get back on the computer to upload.

Eck, sorry, not a 'stud' per se, but a 'rubber cap' over the top of it. Still trying to upload - I'm a newbie with this iPad.....certainly if you hear air there, then the screw is missing....I'll pry off the rubber cap and take another photo of what's underneath so you can see it.....

What an effin adventure this has been. It's taken me literally hours to get this up to photobucket, and hopefully this copying will work. The idle screw is behind the black cover in the center of the photo. It's too dark now for me to get a photo of what it looks like inside - will do that in the morning, if you need it.

Pah, just the effect of the flash....LOL. Rawroy, it's the one in the centre of the photo, with the black 'plug' on it.
