Thats the natural place for gas. If you add too much it will only flood out. Didn't know there was any cars left with a carberator.

1991 F 150 will only idle,dies when gas pedal is pressed


Sound like a carburator problem. Possibly a bad accelerator pump. A carburator kit comes with a new one if you know how to install the kit. If not either have a shop rebuild it. This is much cheaper than buying a new one.

Ireplaced the fuel regulator and fuel pump now i smell gas in the rear of the car and its coming in the cab area when i put gas in the car and drive its real strong and it appears the gas burn quickly even...


1 thing is to make sure you have the right size fuel pump for your engine. A ****** put a 2.2 pump on my 2.5 as soon as this was fixed the gas smell stopped. a new carburator also might do the trick....unfortunately i have had to replace almost every part on my sundevil good luck with yours

MY 2003 Toyota Echo ran out of gas and I put one gallon in and it won't start.


If it has a carburator. Take the air cleaner off and pour a very small amount of gas into the top of the carburator. Like about a teaspoon's worth. If its fuel injected I have no answer for you.

I have a mercedese E200 1986 Replaced the engine with 230 efi but i i have put a carburator it vibrates on idle and its not fuel effecient. I also need to know how to tune the carburator to get the best...


Ensure you have the ignition timing set correctly for the engine you now have. Ensure you have no vacuum leaks, unplugged lines at the manifold or carb.
I would discourage trying DIY on gas as its very dangerous. professional fitted use brass spanners and tools to avoid sparks igniting the gas. i would suggest you bring it to a specialist.

My 1969 mustaNG WILL SHUT DOWN SOMETIMES WHILE DRIVING. hAVE TO RESTART


Hi,
I love older cars. If they get gas and get fire, something occurs. I really would like more detail on what's happening with the car (symptoms)... but I'll throw a few bones out there.
If the engine is dying while driving, I would have to check out a few things...
Fuel issues, assuming the fuel pump is ok:
1. If it tends to die as you give it gas, it's possible the fuel filter is clogged enough to starve the carburator.
2. Is the carburator flooding out?... should be able to smell gas and it wouldn't want to crank readily.
3. Is there condensation in the carburator from "bad gas"? Get a fuel addative and pour it in your tank. It'll evaporate condensation build-up in the tank and carb as you run the engine.
Electronic issues:
1. If it runs great at all revolutions but suddenly dies, I would look at any loose wiring connections at the coil. Also check the hot wire to the coil and insure it isn't arcing on the engine due to burned off insulation.
2. Make sure your points/condensor are good and points gapped properly.
3. If it backfires out the carburator or exhaust when you give it gas, the timing is off a hair...
I may have missed a point or two, but these are pretty basic trouble spots. I hope we nailed it.
Cool car, by the way!
Hope this helped... Good luck!

Ran out of gas,put gas in car still wont start should i put gas in carburator?


it doesnt have a carb its fuel injected so the pump may have gone out the fuel is also coolant for the fuel pump if its below 1/4 tank the pump doesnt cool off as well so if it was empty enough times you probably ruined the fuel pump

Gas tank?


It sounds odd that both cars are experiencing the same problem. This usually indicates a problem with the gas tank not venting properly.
