My honest opinion on this year and mode of car is that the carburetor was very poorly manufactured for a honda. After a some mileage on them the tend to go out of wack, when you try to adjust they either get to low and cut off or idles way to high there is really no medium in them. Your best bet it to get a re-manufactured carb and take car of your problem. Good Luck

I bought a 1987 chevy C3500 w/350ci engine. When I start driving it the engine is really weak and the "choke" light on the dash always stay on. The power gradually increases as I drive the truck. Aft


The choke light is connected to the choke and the oil pressure switch.
The choke coil is heated electrically and from the engine heat to make it open.
The heater could be faulty and the choke is not opening fast enough.
It may have had a Rochester Quadrajet when new.

Cold start cranking problems 1987 toyota truck wont hardley crank when cold then fires fine after gets crunk till next morning


My 1987 truck I use to have had a choke and it would stick open some times. When you get in the vehicle, you have to press the gas pedal to the floor once to set the choke and add enough fuel to start the vehicle. I assume your vehicle has a carburetor and would suggest the following:

When your engine is cold, take off the air cleaner cover and base and look the butterfly valves. They are fist valve on the top of the carb air inlet. Go and step on the gas pedal once. Observe if the valves move to the almost closed position or not. If they don

I need an exploded view of the carburetor so I can attempt to rebuild it. My throttle sticks, my choke plate stays open, & there's something wrong with my air/gas mixture. It will start every now &...


You will need a rebuild kit,avail at the auto part store.
It will have the complete exploded views and all you will need to make the proper adjustments
You will need a vacuum gauge to set it up, when it is back on the car
Also, you will need to have a timing light to check that.
I would replace the float,which is separate from the rebuild kit
I would work on the choke issues first. You may be able to adjust it or just buy those pieces

MY HONDA ACCORD HAS PROBLEM AT COLD START


The Part that is defective is one of 2. First is the Coolant Temp Sensor (Not knowing how much Fuel to give to the Engine) or the IAC (Idle Air Control Valve)... These are the 2 things that effect FUEL getting to the Cylinders to fire. Of course there are other things it could be (Low Fuel Pressure) caused by a air leak in the system or a few others but the first 2 is where I would have started...

4runner idle high when cold after warm up it idle 1200 rpm shot down engine after fuw min. restarting the engine the idle to low?


it seems that the auto choke setting is maybe wrong or there is a problem with engine management, or a worn part which is sticking.

when cold, the engine should be higher as the choke will be on but a warm up idle of 1200 seem a bit high i would expect around 800 and then on restart if the engine is warm then the choke should be off but the idle being too low indicates one of the above.

Cold start problems with 1987 honda accord


I have an 87 accord manual carbureted with 200k miles on it and mine has done that ever since I got it. I've owned it for about four years now and the previous owner told me it happens. I have no idea what it means but the only problem I've ever had was when the alternator went out last summer (which I doubt is related but had similar symptoms).

Not a solution, more just commiseration.

1987 Honda Accord Jolts When Shifting up and down to 2nd


hi, its best you get this looked at soon as possible the chances are it could just be that you need the fluid topping up and will need checking for any leaks.
The problem is if it gets to bad then replacing an auto box is very expensive and is hard to do so its best you get it looked at before it gets beyond repair.
Taking it into a garage will be your best option as they will have a special tool for testing the pressure in the auto box and also the fluid level.
If it has got to bad and cant be solved by fluid alone then the cheapest option would be to get a reconditioned box and getting this fitted as a new one will cost a fortune.
Hope this is some help to you let me know how you get on or if you have any questions ok
