Your adjustment is really , really out or your choke is stuck or hooked up wrong. I personally dont suggest that you do the adjusting yourself if your not familiar with carbs due to the fact that it is what feeds your engine the explosive juice it needs to run AND you dont want to have a fire in your engine compartment. But I do suggest that you take it to a person qualified and have it checked out before it dedoes start a fire or other internal damage to your engine. But if you are familiar, reply and I'll walk you thru it.

1997 sl2 satun started with rough idol now won't start . cranks over and floods. has new fuel filter & air filter


Check the fuel pressure regulator. Pull the vacuum hose off it, If it smells of gas, Replace the regulator. Diaphragm broke and is flooding the engine threw that vacuum line. You'll also need to replace the spark plugs. Gas will foul them out also.

My 1985 Fiero is hard to start and when it starts it idols but when I put it in gear it goes dead ?? I put in a new Idol control valve and a new Throttle position sensor, I did notice when I put the TPS on...


try the fuel presure regulater it should be on the fuel rail ( that is if it is the V-6 ) it hasone vacum line on it and it has i think like 6 screws holding it in. it will cause just that same problem it will also cause it to flood at idle and foul plugs and make it idle rough you may have to chage the plugs also. you might check the vacum to. it should run on stright vacum from the intake.

I suggest carrying around a small screwdriver for this reason... at all times. My 67 stang had this problem in the Straight 6. There are going to be two adjusters, I honestly say just mess with it until you get an adequate response from the motor that you like. (This is for rough, quick, on the fly moments, like being late for work.) Both will need to be messed with in order for you to get the best burn you can.

I have a 1987 gmc shortbox pickup with a 305. it has the throttle body. i cannot get it to run properly. when it idols you can smell fuel. it will eventually die when idoling. almost like its flooding out....


Sound's like running rich, you need to scan your computer and check data for ect sensor (coolant temp sensor ) if bad temp reading will run rich and map sensor, both act like a chock in your truck, check for vacuum at map sensor do not disconnect harness from sensor or will give you code for map sensor .Hope this was helpful.
