Turbo conversion from 1995 on a CVH engine - engine cuts out
I have turbo conversion from 1995 on a CVH engine with single downdraft Weber carb. Just recently, when the engine has warmed up (typically after a short motorway run) when I get into city traffic, I get backfiring on the overrun and then the engine will just die whenever I put my foot on the clutch (e.g. changing down coming to a roundabout or in traffic queues). I have to heel and toe to keep up revs or the engine keeps dying (no idle). If allowed to cool down the engine usually returns to normal idle and two garages have failed to find any problem - cleaned carb, reset jets, changed airfilter etc, but problem recurs in same conditions. Makes driving in traffic a nightmare. Anyone any ideas what the problem might be (others have suggested air leaks, but no idea where to look)?

Turbo conversion from 1995 on a CVH engine - engine cuts out ... I have a xr3 ford escort 1600 with a weber carb,itbackfires and spits fuel up Clean the Carburator completely.
the cvh has a weber carb. these usually need a service every now and then. the smoke suggests there is a over fuelling problem and the dying of the motor sue to some flooding, i fixed a cvh this past weekend with the same problems. make sure that all the air hoses are also connected to the various ports
possibly the fuel metering solenoid on the injector pump playing up was common
or injector pump itself
depending on which type of injector pump you have the round switch things on top rear section of pump that have a single or 2 wires to it.
The most common cause is due to a proper tune up.Plugs,wires,gas filter,air filter and if all is well on that aspect of the engine I would change the EGR valve due to fuel mixture and advance control due to turbo.........Hope this helps you out.
- This is probably the most common carb conversion for
the 6 cyl Jeeps. The Weber is a very reliable, all
mechanical carb that improves performance and drivability.
is designed to supply the proper amount of fuel determined
by the demand put on the engine. When demands are
small, only the primary barrel is used, and when demands
increase, the second barrel is used in to deliver the
performance needed. Use of thie carb allows removal of
all the electronics associated with the BBD.
The 32/36 DGEV model claims 18% hp
increase over the stock factory carb as well as 10-20% fuel
economy increase. The 38 DGEV model is designed for
higher power applications where headers, cam, and
aftermarket intake manifold are used. $$
this is not good; you probably ran the turbo bearings dry and they have seized try to loosen the turbo by removing it breaking it loose and lubricating the bearings if they are still good or, find another one at the junkyard
