Adjust your carb, the 2 screws on each side of the carb adjust so you can get the car to idle correctly, also check your distributor

sounds like the float is sticking or may have a hole in it, you can try adding some automatic transmission fluid to the gas - sometimes works if it sticking,check for a vaccume leak - but usually won't overfuel with a leak- but has happend.

Take your carb cover off and see if the top butterfly valve is open when engine is warm. If not the choke is sticking. Also be sure your air filter is clean (or new) because a dirty air filter acts as a choke if too dirty.

1995 Chevy Astro rough idle after choke goes off and engine is at full operating temperature, also no check engine light.


Inspect/replace air filter.
Fill the gas tank to above 3/4 and add Lucas FUELSYSTEM CLEANER.
Ran on the highway for 10+ miles.

Monitor is the rough idle condition is getting worst on below 1/4 tank.
Change fuel filter and check fuel pressure.
Most failing/weak fuel pump will not work well below 1/4 tank mark.
It will fail in a HOT DAY.

Rough idle, condensation comes from tailpipe when cranked. black smoke, and carb.floods with gas . seems to quit when its gets warmed up and then sometimes it dont.


I don't know the year model, if older carb, sounds like stuck choke, bad choke pull off or bad needle and seat in carb. If newer model, computer staying in closed loop, bad temperature sensor.

Truck losing power and service engine soon light on


Like to other guy said, give it a tuneup. Also try SEAFOAM to clean carb up of slug. Also check to make sure the butter fly for the choke has not come loose, causing it the choke it down. Failed choke pull-off.

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.
