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)?

1990 ford bantam 1.6 cvh W carb adjustments fuel consumption very high and smoking a lot and when I accelerate quickly in gear or still standing it sounds like a miss and it dies


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

Isuzu 3.1. turbo diesel. Engine revs drops and the engine cuts out intermittantly on tick over.


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.

Ive got a 95 subaru wrx single turbo has been going ok bit doesent idle perfict and now when we get up in the revs say anywere over 2 to 2 and a half thousand it just runs like a bag of **** please help


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.

Stock carb or weber 2 barrel whats going to best for mpg this is a daily driver 258 6cyl would like to get close to 17mpg


i would go with the weber.this is why.

Weber - 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. The Weber 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. $$
