A carb mixes the fuel and the intake air atomizing the mixture, and regulating the air and fuel. I doubt however, that you have one on your 95, unless someone did some very strange modifications. What you may be mistaking for a carburator, may simply be the throttle body. If you just have questions about carbs in general, i'd be happy to help you, as I cut my teeth on these.

First your car is not equipped with a carburetor. That said the Carburetor is what supplies fuel to the engine based on the load, there are no cars sold in the USA that use a Carburetor today..

1988 s 10 injector not spraying

Hello Lillie Smith,

Get yourself an automotive stethoscope and listen to a working one... Should be offering a pretty good click...

Then listen to your problem child...
( just for educational purposes ( it can click and still not pass gas properly ))...

Having experienced bothstuck open ( Blacksmoke )
land stuck shut ( bad misfire ) I was able to clear both issues with a Can of Berryman's Chemtool ... but any GOOD carburetor cleaner work ( to clean out the highly probable gum that is formed inside )...

Failing that the injector has an electrical failure and needs to be replaced... (These are NOT complex device)

Good luck and happy motoring !!

Do check for comprise prices... Like

Jeep starting problems

Your best bet is to remove it and dismantle the carb, pull the jets and run a piece of guitar string through them and do the same through every passage in the carburetor body. I've done this myself and it works well. I keep pieces of the small diameter guitar string on a shelf just for this purpose.

98 chevy 350 5.7L how to change the carburetor

it is not a carburetor, it is a throttle body-disconnect the harness, the throttle cable and the bolts that hold it onto the intake-after you have removed the intake tube. It really is not very difficult, just take your time and pay attention to what you remove and where parts go for purposes of re-assembly.there is no fuel involved and it is a good idea to get a gasket for the throttle body to intake in case the original is damaged on disassembly.

Car will turn over but doesn't fire

You need to provide more information. Is the fuel in the tank? Depending on your mechanical skills, you could check to make sure fuel is reaching the injectors or carburetor.

If it is isn't fuel related, then you may have a bad ignition coil, distributor, or other ignition system failure. Without more information, tools, your mechanical background, etc. it may be too difficult for you to handle on your own.

Ocassionally, it has been something as simple as a bad neutral switch in the transmission or brake switch that prevents it from starting (on purpose) as a safety interlock.

When i accelerate there is hesitation and jerking? Once at a certain speed there is no jerking but if you slow down and then accelerate again it jerks/hesitates again.

For there are worn out or destroyed parts then replace them for good .About the carburetor.Prepare the equipment or tools to be used in servicing the carburetor .So that when carburetor will be repaired or serviced no parts will be damage or lost.

1993 Ford Festiva Engine won't stay running

From your Description, I Suggest you; 1- Check for Current/Voltage (10.5 VDC Minimum) to the Carburetor Shut Off Solenoid. If the Carburetor Shut Off Solenoid has Current, then Remove the Carburetor Solenoid and Go to the Hardware Store. Purchase a Bolt of the Same Diameter and Threads. It Needs to be 1/2" to 3/4" Long. Put this Bolt in Place of the Solenoid. If this Corrects the Engine Problem, then Replace the Solenoid. ***NOTE: THIS IS FOR CHECKING THE SOLENOID ONLY I NEVER SUGGEST YOU OPERATE THE ENGINE WITH THE SOLENOID OUT OF THE CARBURETOR EXCEPT FOR TESTING PURPOSES*** Sometimes the Plunger is Moving, Just Not Far Enough to Allow the Gas to Enter the Jets. 2- Even though the Carburetor Looks Clean, the Internal Passages May be Restricted with Varnish that Gas Causes to Build Up over Time. I Suggest you Make Sure the Gas is Free Flowing to the Carburetor Inlet Port. If the Gas is Free Flowing to the Inlet Port, then **Remove, Disassemble and Soak the Carburetor Overnight in Carburetor Cleaner (I Use Gunk). I have Found that Most People can Use a Breakdown/IPL and Disassemble the Carburetor Enough for Proper Cleaning. You Only have to Remove the Bowl (if Applicable), Float Pin (if Applicable), Float (if Applicable) and Needle Valve and Any Adjustment Screws that Go Into the Carburetor Body. The Welch Plugs Do Not have to be Removed. Then Soak the Carburetor Body and Parts in a 1 Gallon Can of Gunk Carburetor Cleaner Overnight. The Can has a Parts Tray Inside it for the Small Parts. Once the Carburetor and Parts are in the Cleaner, you can Replace the Lid for Safety and to Prevent Accidental Spillage. Then Blow Out the Passages with Compressed Air. Install New Parts if Required.** Send me the Model and Type or Spec Numbers Off the Engine, Please. With these I can Locate the Proper Manual and Better Assist you. The Model Numbers May be Stamped Into the Blower Housing (metal engine cover) Above the Spark Plug. If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance. Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Thanks
