I have an '85 S-10 Blazer with a 2.8 V6 automatic transmission, it has a high idle and a dieseling problem, the previous owner removed the fuse for the automatic choke, how can I reduce the idle?


Dieseling or running-on is a fairly natural consequence of an engine that is idling too fast or being switched off before the idle has been restored after being revved.

Changes to engine design to improve acceleration and economy and meet new emission regulations required higher idle speeds and dieseling became a common problem which required the introduction of a fuel cut-off solenoid on many carburettors.

Dieseling is sometimes the result of overheating or too much carbon in the combustion chamber.

The design changes mentioned above required changes to carburation, including the choke design and operation. Complying with new emission regs required a quick engine warm-up and for the automatic choke to disengage in about two minutes. A higher fast idle was also required and mostly at least one vacuum servo was used to ensure smooth running during the warm-up period.

In order to disengage the choke quickly, it was often arranged to be heated, either by electricity alone or by electricity and hot water.

If the fuse has been removed the choke will not work correctly. Why the previous owner removed the fuse is a mystery, perhaps there is a fault.
The choke must be put back into good operation in order to achieve proper fuel economy and smooth running, or alternatively the carburettor could be converted to manual choke.

Opel kadett not idling properly


Does this car have an automatic choke? Sorry, you told neither model nor year, but if it has no mechanic choke, it might have an automatic choke - you can check it by throttling the airflow by "hand" or textile ie. in the airfilter, but be careful of the strong suck.

Sounds like you have an automatic choke problem. The choke mechanism sends more fuel to the carburetors when you just kick it over and then as the engine gets warm the choke (fuel enrichment) goes away as its unneeded. They may have cleaned and rebuilt the carbs, but they may have omitted adjustment of the automatic choke mechanism. As far as your electrical problems, the no. 1 problem with bike electrics is grounding and No. 2 is shorting. I suggest you buy a Haynes manual for your bike, if there is one available. Regardless, remove all the ground screws one at a time and inspect and clean them from corrosion and put them back on. Trim back rotted wiring and cut off bad connectors connectors and replace with new. Try out the system and see if everything works. If something isn't working and your fuses are all good, then you have a short somewhere... usually switches. You can fix them... you have to buy new.

What size fuze for the radio in 2005 cadillac cts


The driver's side rear fuse block is located under the rear seat on the driver's side of the vehicle. The rear seat cushion must be removed to access the rear fuse block. See "Removing the Rear Seat Cushion" listed previously.

To access the fuse block, push in the two tabs located at each end of the fuse block cover. Then lift the cover off...

Weber carburettor problem on 1971 Ford Cortina


it has a choke plate used for cold starting
if it has 2 throats ( venturis ) then the second throat butterfly is most likely vacuum operated in which case the diaphragm for the operation will be faulty
I suggest that you take it to an accredited shop that overhauls carbies , and firstly have the manual choke fitted then have the unit overhauled

My radio and lighter wont work. Replaced the fuse with no luck. The previous owner had a system in the car and removed it but the fuse and line are still coming off the battery terminal. Any guesses?


two factors are involved here,
one is the acc line is disconnected, if the radio is not working because they share the same line
or the lighter is grounded causing the fuse to bust.
