The carburetor needs to be rebuilt, it sounds like the accelerator pump is bad which is in the carburetor and will be replaced when it is rebuilt. I hope that helps you out!

Hello,my 1983 ford ranger doesn't start it does smell like gas when im cranking it over .ive had rebilut carb,cap rotor ,has good spark on new plugs ,new fuel pump,new filter and carb is getting gas.im...


That solenoid is the electric choke and it will flood the truck out if it's not working properly, have you tried to hold the butterfly opened while cranking it, if it starts then, you can unplug the connector to the choke and run it, it just might be hard to start when it's cold.

1985 chevy c20 vacuum problems


on this truck the vacuum is pretty basic, im guessing you have a 305 (5.0) or a 350 (5.7), on the front of the engine compartment near the fan shroud somewhere (if it is still intact) you should have a diagram of all the vac lines
you probably have a quadrajet carb, if you are mechanical and patient they are not hard to rebuild

blowing out the carb with carb and choke cleaner isnt a bad idea either, have someone keep it running and slowly run like 1/4 to 1/2 a can down the carb spraying all around

I have a 1985 oldsmobile toronado and i was driving it all day yesterday and now diz moroning im trying to start it and it wont start for nothing i pump the gas, spray carburetor cleaner on it and it


If it won't start, then pumping the gas and using carb cleaner may make it worse. Carb cleaner is not the same as starting fluid. It will make the engine harder to start. If it's flooded, then pumping the gas will only flood it more. If you need to de-flood, then press the accelerator pedal ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR and HOLD it there while cranking. Don't pump it.
Have you looked at the top of the carburetor while someone cranks the engine? Does the choke close when you press the accelerator for the first (and only) time? You state that you replaced the choke; do you mean the electric choke spring? Is it adjusted correctly? You need to know the choke setting for it to work properly.
Then again, it may have nothing to do with the choke. Do you have spark at the plugs? Have you checked the fuel filter?

My 85 chevy truck idles real high when you first start it and after 3 minutes you hit the gas and it will idle down to normal could it be out of timing or is there a fast idle screw. tried nothing yet 1985...


thats the electric choke. It warms up the engine so that it will idle properly. It may be sticking. Personally i hate the things and just remove and just hold my foot on the gas a bit when cold starting.

But check and see that the solenoid is not sticking and that the other valves on the carb are not sticking some wd-40 should help.

Choke Light rough idle


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

Starting my truck


when you pump the gas pedal can you see fuel spray into the carb .sounds like your pump squirter isnt squirting the gas in to start on a cold start similar to the choke coming on ... or your choke isnt coming on ..try rebuilding the carb or a replacement carb if you can.
