SOURCE: Car stalls out while running

It sounds like it's not getting enough fuel to the engine if it stalls when you let up off the gas pedal but stays running with your foot on the gas it sounds like you need a new fuel pump and or fuel filter for the car.I can almost garantee thats part of the problem

SOURCE: I don't know where the air/fuel mixture screw is on my carb

There should be one screw (I'm assuming it's the Carter YF carburetor 1 barrel) that's by itself away from linkages etc, more to center at base of carb where it meets manifold, that is angled approx 45 degrees going in to base. That should be your mixture screw. What symptoms are you experiencing anyway?

SOURCE: 1998 Ford Mustang Headlight Adjustment

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

I have a carbureted 86 22r pickup. It runs perfect when cold. As soon as the choke pulls off the idle is rough. I have already ruled out the fuel shut off solenoid. It is clean and operates perfectly....


It could be that you have to adjust the idle mixture screw a little . It may be set too lean or too rich which gives what you describe When the engine is at operating temperature turn the screw in or out a bit until the motor runs better. Adjust then until it starts to run rough then screw it the other way until it starts to run rough again. Correct mixture will be in the middle of those points.

1998 toyota sienna failed h c on emisson test


High HC counts are due to a rich mixture, too much fuel. How does the truck run normally? To adjust the fuel mixture at the carburetor, make sure the truck is at operating temperature. Turn the idle mixture screw clockwise until the engine starts to lag then turn the screw back just until it runs smooth. Also make sure you have fresh oil as this could cause high HC's as well since fuel gets into the oil and make sure your PCV valve is operating correctly. If you can't get it adjusted correctly, you may have to pay a shop to hook it up to the emissions machine to get the mixture correct, unfortunately.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

You have two setting screws on front of carb, You start off by adjusting all the way to the left, Then back off 3/4 turn to both setting screws, Then you have to set your air fuel mixture by just slowly turn your setting clock wise do so until vibration go away. Sorry there is no easy way to explain, Good luck to you,

I need a workshop manual for a mitsubishi L300 van 1990 model need to find mixer screw please


The mixture screw is located in a resessed hole just above the therma start plate at the rear of the carby. The rear of the carby faces away from the inlet manifold and you require a special tool to access this adjustment. The other screw adjustments on the carby and linkages are for idle, fast idle, and choke limits including those models with automatic (thermal type) choke mechanisms.
I would advise that if you make any adjustments to the mixture that you have the mixture checked using an exhaust gas analyser.However, as a general rule of thumb, screw the mixture adjustment all the way in until you feel it tighten but DO NOT FORCE IT !! the screw has a delicate needle valve on the end which will be damaged if the screw is forced beyond it's normal length of travel.
Unscrew the mixture screw a total of one and a quarter turns back out and then have the setting checked with a exhaust gas analyser. Too rich and not only is this expensive but will cause damage to spark plugs etc. Too lean a setting will cause a misfire which will damage valves and pistons.

Good carb, just runnin way too rich


On the carb you should have 2 screws. One for the air and one for the fuel. You will able to adjust your air fuel mixture via those screws.

Troubleshooting fuel system for 1975 jeep cj5


Fuel pumps just supply fuel to the carb. Either they work or don't work. I would make sure that the mixture screws on the carb are set properly. Turn the screws in to lean out the mixture, do one at a time.
You want to turn the screws in to the point where the jeep will start to idle rough and then back out a 1/2 turn. Check your timing also. If the jeep has alot of miles on it, the timing chain will stretch and it's possible that you cannot get the correct timing.

22R Carb at high altitude


Yes, Colorado is much higher in altitude. Do to higher altitude the barometric pressure is less than sea level by a long shot. Lower barometric pressure mean that less air is entering your engine. Which in turns mean that your engine is now running richer than it was at a a lower altitude. So I recommend checking you engine timing, and adjusting your carbs air/fuel mixture. yes this means that you may need to rejet. but first there is a screw on your 22r's carb that you must adjust to lean the air mixture just right. I have had a stock 22r carbortor before and never had to rejet it. i probibly should have but it ran fine at sea level and all the way to about 10000 ft. after 10000 feet i had to lean the fuel mixture to even alow the engine to run. This screw that you must turn is hidden due to toyota not wanting you to tamper with it and burn your engine to the ground by running your engine to lean. it has a metal plug on the passenger side of the carb about the size of a pencil eraser. you must drill that out and then you can adjust the air fuel mixture. Clock wise is to lean the air fuel. and Counter clock wise is to richen the air fuel mixture.A good rule of thumb is to turn the air/fuel screw all the way clock wise and then back out about 2 and 1/2 turns. That is the factory adjustment. you may only need 2 turns out. Best of luck i hope you get it running perfect. Try this adjustment first then if it still runs rich then think about rejetting.

Here is a picture of what i am talking about.

#1 is the air/fuel mixture, #2 and #3 are cold and warm idle screws.
#4 is a A/c idle adjustment.
