The choke plate should be located on the side of the intake manifold, just under the air intake assembly. Most likely on the driver's side. Remove your air intake so you can see into the manifold and you will be able to tell if the choke plate is stuck by having an assistant press the accelerator (while the vehicle is off). While it is pressed, can you see into the manifold? If not, the choke plate may be stuck, blocking your view and the air from coming in.

How are you supposed to start a l200 on a 04 plate properly


the owners hand book will have the starting procedure but as a rule with a diesel you wait for the glow plug light to go out, depress clutch , as with all cars depressing the clutch reduces the energy required to turn engine over as the gearbox is disengaged, and start engine , there should be no need to use the accelerator to get the engine to start, hope this helps

Now you can do another clutch

Ford Focus Deisel chokes on acceleration


Hi mate.

This sounds like a fuel problem.

Some one may have have filled up with petrol. If so you will have to drain the feul tank and change your feul filter.

If only diesel has been put into the tank then carry on as follows until you solve the problem.

Change your fuel filter and air cleaner for a start.

Check your timing.

If you still have the problem, then have your injectors cleaned and reset.

If the problem is still there then you will have to have the fuel pump reconditioned.

You can also check your leak off pipes between the injectors to see if they are in good condition.

I trust this will help you.

Driving and when want to speed up the accelerator just stays in the same speed or slows down


It seems as if you are driving with the choke engaged all the time. If you haven't pulled the choke then check the business end where you might see the choke lever stuck in a position that indicates the choke has been pulled. Push it back manually and try again.....sodeep

Ford LTDwith 400m cuts out?


fuel filter or fuel pump problem or it could be the automatic choke is closed and choking motor make sure choke is plugged in on side of carb start car let it warm up with air breather off watch and see if choke opens up .also you can look down into carb when motoe running crack open throttle and see if it sprays gas into intake if it doesnt could be filter or pump. to check fuel pump remove fuel line from carb insert line into small can or bottle so fuel doesnt run ontop of motor and have someone just bump over starter and see if it pushes fuel out line with a descent amount of pressure check fuel filter.and if all that checks out try looking for vaccum line off to check get a can of either and squirt lightly around vaccum lines and listen for car to idle up if it does bad vaccum line. and also check distributer. but it sounds like it is getting to much gas so i would check choke first..... hope that helps .. and by the way you have a 351 modified 400 wich is 351 m 400.
