Does it not idle even after the engine warms up ?
That sounds like a vac leak, or not enough gas coming thru the idle circuit of the carb.

SOURCE: died and now wont start

Phil is correct, the ignition module is usually the culprit, although usually the fuel pump wont work . But stranger things have happened. I advise not using a cheap auto stores model of that module. I only buy them from ford, and only the motorcraft ones, the Wells brand will make you walk home. Also check the fuel regulator, in rare cases it acts up.

SOURCE: my 1983 ford bronco will start and run alright

check for a crank shaft or camshaft failure. Also try by using a scanner if you can get any fault or if you use the scanner into live measurements to see the outcome readings into all the electrical and computerized controlled units of the car.

My 1968 mustang wont idle when I lift my foot off the pedal. But it will idle when I step on to the pedal. What do I do?


If you look at the throttle linkage on the driver's side of the carb you will see that it should rest on a screw at idle. Turn that screw in a little should solve your problem.
If that doesn't fix it then you will have to adjust the mixture screws in front.

1969 Datsun 1600 pickup Fast Idle


Could be the fast idle cam for the choke. When the choke is closed the fast idle cam holds the throttle open until the choke opens.
The cam should be on the opposite side of the throttle cable.

1985 c10 choke stuck open it's cold and damp


Absolutely not, the automatic choke is defective. Replace that and it should be fine. It will need to be adjusted when cold to fully closed position. Check vacuum lines as vacum pulls the choke back when engine is started.

I have a 1989 Mercedes 560SEL. Gasoline engine.Problem is the car will not start unless I push the choke down on top of the carburetor OR I can prime it with a little gas After doing this I can drive it...


Vacuum is only used to open the choke. To close, assuming it is an automatic choke, there is a thermal spring coil. There is usually an adjustment that consists of loosening the fasteners on the round spring housing and turning. It should have marks for different settings, but these are not exact. Adjust in the morning by loosening the screws, opening the throttle with one hand, and rotating the spring housing until the choke is just closed. Tighten the screws. Make sure to check the engine after it warms up to see if the choke is opening properly. There may also be a fast idle setting that uses a cam to increase the idle when tne choke is closed.

The engine sputters and dies when it heats up. Is this Vapor lock? On cold start it works great and idles just fine but as it heats, the engine starts choking and soon dies out. If this is vapor lock, how...


sounds like the reason it starts and idles fine at start up is your choke is functioning... as your vehicle warms up.. the choke starts to kick off... Inspect your throttle body and idle control motor.

Hello I have a 1980 Ford Bronco 351 2bbl. Wondering if anyone knows which screws adjust what? Please if anyone has any ideas please respond. Thank you.


Here are some images that might help to assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.


Adjust the curb idle with the engine warmed up and the choke off.

The air/fuel mixture screws should be adjusted with the engine warmed up and at normal idle speed, then turn each air/fuel mixture screw in one at a time until the engine just begins to mis-fire, then back the air/fuel mixture screw out 1-1/2 to 2 turns out a half a turn at a time until the engine idle is the smoothest. (your vehicle might have restrictor caps over the air/fuel mixture screws to limit the amount of adjustment)

Adjust the fast idle screw to the proper RPM with the engine cold and the choke on.
