I have a 1984 Nissan/datsun 4X4. Will not Idle properly, just dies if not constantly given gas. Sometimes has problem starting. Any ideas?


The throttle/choke adjustment would correct this. If adjusting this does not make a difference then the carb will need to be rebuilt/replaced.

Car starts, runs rough it will eventually die after about 10 to 15 seconds, or if i try to give it gas. smells like gas. replaced fuel pump/filter


why did you replace the filter and pump?
did something get in the fuel?

Replace the fuel filter. That should fix the problem. You can follow the fuel line back to the fuel tank to find it. It is usually in the middle of the vehicle near the edge of the vehicle, like right under the passengers or drivers door.
