Just repair the choke you have (don't be a butcher)
Try NAPA for old S10 Carb parts
They have a complete carb kit and float.

My choke light stays on while i drive my 84 firebird trans am. Why does it do that and how can i make it go away?

the choke light will come on when the choke is on i assume its electric choke if the choke is on vehicle would run poorly flood out and stall if vehicle runs fine then its in the electrics of the choke switch or a bad wire to the choke that says its on even when its not i would start there first.

Flooding Chev Vortec V6 . Fuel pressure regulator

New or not, sounds like the carb needs a retune, the float appears to be sticking letting in gas check the auto choke that will flood as well if left open or not functioning properly?

Occassionally when enagaging the clutch on my 3.5lt jackaroo the idle revs increase to aorund 3000rpm. I was thinking it may the IAC valve. Any other ideas??

Sorry cobber but in europe we do not have this car ,well thats a lie we do its the body shell but thats it ,ours are diesel or a smaller 4cyl lump ,But i would be inclined to look at the clutch cable to see if its catching on anything also the mechanism under the dash where the pedal control for the throttle is ,could be something simple like the carpet catching and when you push the clutch down its pushing up under the throttle pedal somehow ,remember the classic years ago of the woman moaning about petrol consumption ,----- she was hanging her handbag on the manual choke cable ?? or the american woman who rented a car at heathrow airport and drove to cornwall stuck in first gear and she thought it was a auto so check the carpet under the dash you never know ,greetings from spain by the way

Auto choke is stuck getting gas into motoroil how do i fix choke

buy a carb rebuild kit (wow old car a near record here....)
or convert auto choke to manual, done every carb car i owned.
i hate auto chokes, all of them , water, stove, or electric, hate.
on hot days, no choke, , no flooding. no washing oil off rings either.
you learn quick just how much chock is best .

finding carb kits are a bit hard , here is uSA.
google for one,
ok rock has it

and the full rebuild ket too.

seems it the electric type.
replace it and set it like the FSM states.
varies by climate and altitude (higher is less chock set)

Dashboard light problemsradio knob light does not come on as well as the heater control lights. they use to all work but stopped all of a sudden.

Check your fuse box, Should be under your dash, right above where your clutch would be. Read the back of the panel, it will tell you which fuse goes where. check that fuse, or replace it. I cheat and put a higher amp fuse in all my fuse spots.

What is causing my 1986 jeep grand wagoneer engine to stall while driving? I cannot restart it but there is power. It will turn over but not start and there is gas in it. The jeep just went "poof" and died...

ok, its and old jeep, cranks but will not start.

carb fueled right? crank it wide open throttle to clean the flood
and block open the choke, if CARB has auto choke, if manual choke make sure its open. (push in knob... called choke)
fuses first. test them.
first check for spark in all cylinders.
if you have spark on all , then its flooded.
if no spark on one try a new spark plug and wire.
if all spark is dead , do the tuneup. now. all spark parts.
if spark is dead, check it at the coil, ? good there? or not.
that is a start.
if the carb is bad, we cant cover rebuilding it here.

stalls while driving has over 50 causes.
but bad spark or flooding tops list. (assumes engine is ok)

Will drive through flood water cause clutch problem?

as for choking make sure your air filter is not soaked in water, as for your clutch dont see ya water would affect it unless you picked something up in the puddle that got logged in the linkage
