Carburetor can be rebuilt with a kit. No filter inside, but lots of things to clean and rubber parts that wear out.

Pull the MAF sensor and give it a cleaning the correct way.Sometimes something shorts those probes(tiny wires and delicate) and your engine will cut a shine on you.
Look up how to clean the MAF sensor if you don't know how. don-ohio

1978 ford f250 351/400 dies when put in drive


Turn in the idle speed screw on the carburetor throttle-raise the idle some, it will open the throttle plate a bit when you turn the screw in. Idle speed should be about 800 rpm's, with truck in drive, foot on brake, and engine at normal operating temperature. If it still dies with the idle raised, it might need a tune-up-plugs, wires, dist. cap and rotor, and new filters. Good luck.

Idle fluctuates on 1995 f250, sometimes dies, sometimes revs, no apparent vaccum issues, IAC with scan tool reads low voltage issue. Could this be vaccum, charging system, faulty computer? Problem is...


Engine stalls cold or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control. If the above cleaning doesn't cure your issues you need to have the computer controlled automatic idle speed control system diagnosed and repaired by a dealer or electronic engine control repair shop.

Check engine light comes on. RPMs surge and sometimes engine dies when idling after engine is fully warmed up. Car hesitates at times. Car will jump or **** at times when driving at highway speeds when...


Mine was doing that also.. We changed the two EGR valves, changed spark plugs and wires, and finally cleaned the Mass Air flow Sensor with carburetor cleaner. That seemed to helped the most. You have to take the sensor off to do it.. you can find a youtube video that explains it. Now all I have to do is figure out why my car's RPM's surge when slowing down.

I have a 93 f150 with a 5.8 liter motor. It started idling real low and sometimes dies out. Usually dies when I shift from drive to reverse or vice vesa.


Check the linkage for loose connection.

Check carpet or anything that can keep idle incorrectly.

====
When engine is cold,use 1/2 can of carburetor to clean out the interior.
====
Check your service record for the last catalytic converter replacement

If you has your last smog check report handy then look for the Nox reading. If it's on the high side then your catalytic may need replacement.
====
Take a long drive (high rpm if possible) to clear out the carbon on the cylinder heads.

Where is the throttle body on a 96 maxima... and what do I need to access. My car sometime cutt-off while idling and sometime cuts out while driving like its getting no gas. I already changed my fuel...


The throttle body is where the carburetor used to be, in the middle top of the intake manifold where the air intake tube ends.
Use a major brand "Fuel throttle body cleaner" in your gas tank every 6 months or so. Don't use store brand. Ther eis also a spray for the linkage, etc. Use that too... and spray into the throttle body with engine running. Don't let the engine die while spraying into the throttle body.
