Auto chokes don't often age well and some weren't good when new. Certainly they aren't easy to maintain and often some inexperienced attention makes them work for only a short time and it makes little difference whether they are electrically heated, water heated or exhaust heated.

When an auto choke gives trouble there is a temptation to lubricate it and that seems to work but being exposed to heat, dirt and atmosphere, a lubricated linkage soon gathers dust that makes it stiffer than those light springs can efficiently overcome. The addition of little vacuum servos requiring additional adjustments, vacuum lines, switches, restrictors and so forth made things much more complex especially as the servos failed regularly and were so expensive to replace.

Enterprising companies made manual choke conversion kits for popular cars. Some were quite good and easy to fit but many were fussy, complex and time-consuming and didn't perform well.
A few years ago I performed surgery on my old Proton carburettor and produced my own conversion. I was one of the lucky ones as it continues to work brilliantly.

If a lubricant must be used it should be no heavier than WD-40 but ideally the way to a functioning auto choke that will be reliable for a long time is to make it thoroughly clean and dry, replace anything that isn't virtually as good as new and pay particular attention to the alignment of the linkages and the condition of the springs in order to eliminated as much binding, fouling or friction as possible and then adjust it strictly according to the repair manual.

Once those stages are complete, start the engine and time how long it takes to fully open. If it takes longer than specified then replace the heat mass, heating unit, bimetal spring or whatever it takes to achieve that time.

I have one of those cars and personally, would not recommend it to anyone period...same year, with the 2.5l v6 and auto, it just hit 103,000 miles and its poor quality car,front end shakes with new tires, had to replace rear hubs which are same as a Ford Contour(also junk) there are alot of similarities to the contour... took it off the road and replaced it with a 1997 civic 5 spd with 169,000 miles...problem solved

How auto choke works and how to repair it?

Auto choke? Fuel injection systems don't use a choke? They use a coolant temp sensor. When the pcm sees the engine is cold it gives the engine more fuel and more idle.

If your missing a hose and not sure about the name or where its located, I would resort to buying a auto manual from almost any parts supply store for Your 97 Tahoe or visiting an Auto Mechanics shop and ask the favor of helping you pin point and identifying the correct hose needed for your fix. I hope this helps-"GOOD DAY"

Over revving in park and nutral on a 2l auto estate Nubira


This is a problem with the "auto throttle control unit" (SilverwolfRA, yes aka - auto choke).

A car computer mechanic downloaded the info. from my 1999 Nubira and then adjusted as necessary. It didn't repair to complete (as new) functionality (as the unit is damaged?), but I'm happy with the result.
