Question about Ford Laser

Open Question

Where is my automatic choke on my 1985 ford laser?

I need to know where my automatic choke is in my motor of a 1985 ford laser i think its stuck on as my car revs too high. i have turned the revs down but it still sounds like my choke is stuck on. Also my fan in the engine does not go, i have changed the fuses inside the car but it seems to always blow, so when i'm sitting in traffic my car heats up as the fan is not working, everything is plugged in the engine bay around the radiator.

SOURCE: Radiator Fan continuously running with engine off, discharging battery

It is not the fault: for long time Renault has that concept, that is to prevent engine oveheating when coolant circulation is suddenly stopped.

Radiator fan can continue to work up to 10 minutes after engine is off. You should worry about it only if it wouldn't stop even after 10 minutes.

engine coolant temperature sensor unit!? you say you had a thermostat issue some times if you over heat these the switch above might cause malfunction! I just spent 7 hours on relays!! with engine running un plug coolant sensor temp switch if your fan comes on you have no relay issues!! or ground problem keep in mind this switch tells the system the temperature then when reached sends signals to relay the fan to come on! when I unplugged mine fan ran plugged it back in off!!! replaced switch works great this is the true way to test don't get$$ it out hope this helps you out also be sure you have no air locks in your cooling system and you properly bleeded out all air sense you changed thermostat.John

COOLANT TEMP SENSOR IS MOST LIKELY BAD. NEED TO CONNECT TO THE OBD CONNECTOR WITH A COMPUTER AND SEE WHAT TEMP THE COMPUTER IS SEEING.

SOURCE: radiator cooling fan 30 amp. fuse keep blowing

The fan may run with jumper wires but if it''s blowing the 30 Amp Maxifuse it's needs a new or used fan motor.It's pulling too many amps.I have almost never seen a fan relay concern.Only other thing you may check is the wiring down near the fan shoud I have seen the 2 wires get loose from the conduit & melt onto exhaust manifold.Hope tHis Helps

Jump a wire from the battery to the hot lead on the fan -- see if it turns -- if it turns, check the fan relay.

If it's carburetor & has automatic choke, then there is probably a screw at side of carb, by step cam that moves with choke . Back it of a little at a time until you get desired cold idle speed. Make sure you turn step cam to setting it would normally be when cold, and choke on, then turn screw out to lower rpm's. Look for a little rod from choke shaft, down to base or side of carb area, to step cam.

Hmm...........

Probably carb? Automatic choke not working? Remove air filter and spray carb with cleaner, Make sure all parts move freely. With engine cold, check automatic choke position. Start and check function as it warms up.

Hi is it a fuel injection model or carb? If it is a carb model, I have found the auto choke gets stuck. This will make it start fine in cooler weather but floods the engine on warmer days or if the engine is hot.

When you say it's destroying the air filter---do you mean it's all sooted up ?? I am assuming that what you mean.
Try disconnecting the vacuum line at the egr valve and see if that helps.
But it sounds more like a plugged up exhaust system.Try disconnecting or looosing the flange before the cataylic convertor and then see how it runs.

I wanna know if the 1985 mustang gt 5.0 ho is electric choke or manual choke


Electric choke from the factory,the choke pull off runs off of power from the alternators stator post which supplies about 7 volts when its running.Spring tension and a stomp on the throttle set it.
