Question about 1996 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Hi My 89 G11 charade intermitently looses power when on open road & feels like it is starving for fuel. It does not miss but looses power until I floor it (opening 2nd throat) & then it will often pick up again & run ok for a while. Could it be a dirty carb & could I just spray carb cleaner into it or might this make it worse?

A dirty carb may be one of the causes. A carb cleaner sprayed at it while reving will help clear out dirt. It can also be fuel and air mixture especially if you have erratic or incorrect idling. You may also want to look at the fuel filter if it needs replacement.

1998 Toyota Vista Ardeo - runs well until engine is warm, engine sounds like it is missing and loosing power, if you accellerate engine comes back to full power and runs well, has had scan tool on, shows...


Scan tool or code reader ?

Are the O2 Sensors really old? Like 80,000
miles or more?

Most likely rich & the computer is taking out fuel & you
get a lean fuel trim or whatever your looking at.

Look at misfire counts after you drive it hot for 5 or 10 miles

Try getting the egr unplugged etc to stop the possibility of a lean
misfire on a road test.

Take a fuel pressure gauge along for a ride tied to a wiper to
get fuel pressure eliminated.

You will need a scope to really check O2 Sensors & TPS
back at home etc

2003dodge ram hemi 1500, no power, torque, or throttle response


AS far as IAC goes, you would probably experience stalling at lights, on turns , anytime engine under load like AC on at stop. TP sensor? Maybe, but is easy to check with an ohm meter. I'm sure you have checked all brakes for possibly holding on slightly. You have checked throttle pedal & linkage to make sure pedal down all the way, is opening throttle all the way? Does it feel at all like it's holding back, or just starving? Any good tranny shop that could check torque converter for proper operation in your area? One other idea would be to join free, at (allpar.com) and post there, as that would be a spot where all or a lot of guys with same vehicle may be able to shed some light on it for you.

Size of Jets for 1984 Daihatsu Charade G11 Turbo Carburettor


You won't need to change the jets. We have had the Cb60 pumping 75- 90kW on the stock carby. Are you trying to increase performance there are better ways: e.g. RHF5 series turbo, lightened flywheel (4.5kg) with Mazda 121 clutch plate and 1600lb pressure plate. Swap in a G202 electronic dizzy& coil, and replace vacuum advance diaphragm.

Horsepower for g11 charade


The turbocharger is the way to go. The standard turbo version of the CB23 is the CB60 or CB61.

It might be easier to source a turbo engine rather than go through the process of modification.

The Cb60/61 has a small IHI RHB32 hairdryer stock, but enthuisisats throw them for an RHF5 series. The engine is blow through carby, the carby being fitted with positive pressure diaphragms as is the distributor.

This one I fuel injected:
