There is a lip, opposite the hinge you just lift with a fingernail and the choke pops open.. Don't be confused with the 2 tabs on either side. They hold the ceramic pieces in place.

How to adjust automatic choke


Procedure #1-
  1. Be sure the hook on the bimetallic spring contacts the choke shaft lever.
  2. Install the cover and retainer and lightly tighten the screws.
  3. Turn the ceramic element to align the mark on it with the middle mark on the housing.
~~~ Procedure #2-
  1. The engine must be cold to make this adjustment.
  2. Remove the air cleaner.
  3. Find the automatic choke. It's the round thing on the upper right-hand of the carburetor. There is a wire coming to it from the positive side of the coil.
  4. Note: The automatic choke is a round ceramic thing with the heating element wound inside of it. (The ceramic part may be covered with metal so that it looks just like the rest of the carburetor.) The choke is held in position by a triangular ring clamp and three screws so it can be loosened and rotated for adjustment.
  5. Pull the throttle arm on the left side of the carburetor down to free the little step arm (cam) that the screw at the top of the throttle lever rests on.
  6. Note: This stepped "cam" is connected to the butterfly valve inside the throat of the carburetor by a shaft that extends all the way into the automatic choke. With the engine cold, the butterfly valve should be closed. As the engine warms up, the coil inside the automatic choke uncoils, opens the butterfly valve, and moves the cam to reduce the idle speed.
  7. Release the throttle arm so that the return spring snaps it back. The little screw at the top of the throttle arm (again, with the engine cold) should now rest on the top step of the stepped cam. This sets the hi-idle, which is needed together with the choke on a cold engine to provide sufficient idle speed to keep the engine running until it warms up fully.
  8. Loosen the three screws on the right side that hold the choke in place.
  9. Keep your eye on the butterfly valve in the carburetor throat.
  10. Turn the choke element clockwise (viewed from the right) until the butterfly is standing straight up, then turn the choke counterclockwise (viewed from the right) until the choke butterfly fully closes (barely -- not too tightly), then tighten the three screws that hold the choke in place.
  11. Note: This is important; the automatic choke may be assembled wrong and not catching the hook on the coil spring at all.
  12. Start the engine with the air cleaner off. As the engine warms up, make sure that the butterfly opens until it is standing straight up (full open) when the engine is fully warm. If it doesn't, readjust the choke until you get it right.
  13. Note: The engine is now warm, so you won't be able to adjust the choke per the foregoing. Note the position of the notch on the side of the choke relative to the three little ridges on the body of the carburetor. If the butterfly is too far closed with the engine warm, turn the choke clockwise just a bit to straighten it up. The notch on the choke should never be too far outside of the three ridges on the body of the carburetor. If you are not able to adjust the choke using these method, something may be sticking, or perhaps the coil spring inside the canister is broken, or perhaps the wire has fallen off of the contact on the canister so that it is not getting power from the battery properly.

1979 GMC Carb issues


You haven't provided a lot to go on here but I'll take a stab in the dark. If you are somewhere that is unusually cold, maybe you just need to let it warm up. Could be the choke is not working, could be the choke is closing but wont open because the heat riser passage in the intake manifold is plugged up with carbon, could be the fuel pump is weak or the filter is plugged and the carb is starving for fuel even though the tank is full.

To check the choke operation, take off the air cleaner lid before you try to start it and operate the throttle by hand while watching the choke plate. It should snap shut. If it does rack the throttle two more times, start it up and watch the choke plate. it should open just a little (maybe 3/8') on a cold day let it run on fast idle for a few minutes, as it starts to warm up the choke should open more. And be fully open after a little while. Given it's age it would not surprise me at all if the carburetor is not working right. If you are going to take it to a shop, look for a mechanic in his late 40's. I know that sounds weird but most of the young guys out there have never even seen a quadrajet let alone rebuilt one.

Only in morning i need to put gas in carb to start it and its geat for the rest of the day very little gas and fast to start


I would check the choke to see if it is close if not try ajusting it by losening the three screws on the right side of carb (passenger side car not running) hold acelerator left side open slitely turn black part of choke to the left till choke just closes release acelerato tighten the three scews if all that is ok check to see if by pressing acelerator with choke open if you see gas squirting (car not running)

Check this procedure for 1993 Ford Taurus 3.0L FI 6cyl REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figures 1 and 2)

Be sure to consult the laws in your area before beginning any procedure which requires servicing the air conditioning system. In some states, it is illegal to perform repairs involving refrigerant unless the work is done by a certified technician.

CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
When removing the instrument panel, it may be beneficial to have a friend or assistant help you.

does it have a sunroof? if so check your drains which are located in the corners of the sunroof opening (glass will have to be open to see them) if the drains are plugged find a friend with an air compressor and a blow gun and gently blow air into the drains until all debree is cleared. if you DONT have a sun roof, check door seals for tears and also another check have someone spray the windsheild and check for leaks, you may have a windsheild seal that has let loose and will need to be resealed

Always need to fill the carb with gas in order to start


The carb has a small manual injector that will squirt gas down the carbs throut when you pump the throtle. If this is not working you may have to open the carb and replace the rubber seal around it ... kind of like the old bicycle pump had to have a leather washer in it to work. The seal may be cracked or broken.
