Hi, carb. shooting up gas & flooding on 1989 Dodge D50 2.0L mits

A carb repair kit and float did not change the problem. The truck only has about 120,000 miles on it. Speeds of over 80mph were reached just before the problem began. Do you know what, if anything, will fix this? Thanks for any help!

Also check the float level, if not set to the right height float will cause too much gas to be sent to the bowl. you do this by bending the small tab on the back of the float. one way makes the float shut off sooner and the other makes it shut off fuel later. also check the fuel air mixture no small task on the mikuni carb.

Check that the choke is working right and check all the vacuum lines for leaks

1: 100% clean every inch, (called "boiling out the carb") or kemdipped.

2: kitted, put in a carb kit, gaskets, and all the bits.

3: make sure choke works. turns off , on a hot engine, if not MPG WILL SUCK.

6: tune it. (thats the long story.)

My jag smells like as if it was flooding when i try to start it, when it does start it idles fine but as soon as I rev it up it bogs out, please help me as i really can`t afford to take it to a mechanic,...


Well first off what year and kind of Jag is it?That will make a difference on what might be the problem.If it is a carbureted model, it sounds like you either have a simple fuel line leak going to the carb so when your car sits fuel drips out and gives you the gas smell and then sucks air when you rev it up.If there is no line leak,sounds like your float in the carb is sticking open and simply flooding the carbs with gas,hence the smell and the bogging out at rpm.You would need a carb rebuild kit with float to fix that problem.That way you have gaskets and floats to fix your carb.

If you can spray carb cleaner in the carb then you have either a fuel supply problem or fuel delivery problem. Check your fuel pressure and make sure it is in spec. Then check the spray in the carb spray.

Bad seal. Rebuild the Carb with a new kit and make sure you have no extra parts. You should be able to get a carb rebuild kit from your local auto parts store.

Carb gas pouring out of hole on top front of carb


Sounds like the float has absorbed gasoline and can't ftoat anymore. This causes the fuel to not be shut off when float bowl is full causing the carb to flood. You will have to buy a carb kit and a float and rebuild the carb. Hope this helps.
