The van will start, but have to push pedal to the floor, once it starts it will idle great but dumps a lot of gas into the carb., once you push down on the pedal it dies.


carb problem sounds like choke is stuck or float is stuck remove cover and air cleaner and watch operation when starting see if choke blade is open or shut on carb and if shut watch to see if it opens when u let it idle. if not choke pull off solenoid is bad. if working tap on carb to free float.if that don't work carb may need to be rebuilt or get new one .

You may have too much fuel and are flooding the engine when the fuel line is connected. This could be due to fuel dripping from leaking injectors or a cold start injector that is stuck open. Or, if the fuel pressure regulator is faulty and stuck in the high pressure mode, too much fuel will be sent through the cold start injector and the engine will flood.
