SOURCE: choke light

Sounds like your choke is sticking.Try to make your choke stay open with something after the engine is warm and see how it runs then.If it solves it you may need a new choke or get it adjusted.

SOURCE: problems with idleing with a manual choke

Check the flexible pipe wich extends from the exhaust manifold to the bottom of the air cleaner inlet. if it is missing or not properly mounted you will have that exact concern. If it is there and looks functionable have the carburetor rebuilt by a professional. The primary fuel circuits are clogging/varnishing up and the passage becomes smaller not allowing fuel to flow properly. The engine can handle the lack of fuel better when warm. At the time of rebuilding they must check for cracked vucuum lines and check the linkage for the choke and fast idle cam. This will ensure proper fuel delivery and cold engine enrichment as needed. Good luck

SOURCE: new carburetor installed on 79 el camino

I am familiar with these, a manual choke carb works off of a bimetal coil in the manifold exhaust crossover on the passenger side of the intake, Make sure it is hooked up, then while the car is cold, on the rockchester carbs, use an 1/8 in drillbit to set choke. You have to loosen the three screws on the choke to set, when the choke flap, the very top one on the carb touches the drillbit, set it there and lock down screws, pump once or twice and it should start and idle, as the bimetal coil heats up it should open the top flap. if you try to accelerate before it is wam it will disconnect from the auto choke. I hope this helps if not please do not rate me at all, if it does help you fix your problem then please give me a fixya,

Took it to Buckeye Nissan in Hilliard OH. and they had to replace the two crank sensors which.
The sensors themselves were about $44.00 a piece, but w/labor about $300.00 was the total. Hope this helps.....Now if I can just get the heater working!

Car very hard to start in morning and when do finaly get it started revs right up and shakes bad till it warms up then revs just shake up and down 1996 323f 1.5

If the engine has a carb, I would say that the choke is stuck open. Check and use some penetrating oil to free the choke butterfly valves. Spray on the shaft and move the valves till they operate freely. If it is an automatic choke see that it opens and closes as the engine heats and cools.

I have a 1994 cadillac eldorado. Sometimes when I start my vehicle and begin to drive; it starts to shake. When I get past 10mph the shaking stops, but when I conduct a complete stop; the vehicle starts...

You need to check the choke on the engine for cold starts it chokes off air to the fuel mix . if it is closed to much the engine will want to die and shake. When the car warms up the choke opens and the car gets air and runs fine although the choke could just be part open. It still will need adjusting.

Hope this helps

Sounds to me like the automatic choke assembly is out of adjustment or not functioning correctly. On a cold day, you will note that the choke assembly is closed, try manually opening it and proping it open to see if this improves the problem. If your not sure where the choke assembly is, I suggest you buy a Hanes Repair Manual for this vehicle from your local auto parts store to help troubleshoot this problem.

Excessive idle speed

The problem may also be the automatic choke. It could be stuck in fast idle. check all choke settings and linkages clean if nessesary. There is a separate fast idle adjustment screw on the choke linkage that controls engine speed while the engine is warming up. The tip of the screw rests against a cam that slowly rotates as the choke opens during engine warm up. Turn this screw counterclockwise to decrease the fast idle speed.
