no they hardley ever go bad,they do get some buildup of carbon in them,you can clean it with carb cleaner,just dont push the tube inside it just spray and let dry,im not sure the 84 has this,but if it does like posted is on throttle body,2 tourx screws,1 plug in and is round & about a inch long.

A screw on the carburetor. I have the same exact car, same color too.
