Carburetor floats are adjusted (if needed) when the unit is rebuilt. This is not a normal maintenance item and it is unusual for a float to become misadjusted. Rebuild kits for carburetors are available from parts stores inexpensively, and complete instructions for all adjustments and clearances are included in the kits, as well as all the gaskets and replacement parts you might need.

Yesterday I replaced the carb on my 89 jeep wrangler. Twice. Both times when I turn the ignition over it doesn't start but instantly floods the carb with gas. Why and how do I fix this?


Sounds like a stuck or defective float.(perhaps a hole in it). Also check the needle valve for operation and if its installed correctly. That is connected to the float

Have a '89 jeep wrangler 4 cyl. manual.trans. it misses bad until up to about 50. also can see black soot on ground under tailpipe. any ideas>


Your problem is fuel related. There is too much fuel entering the engine. If your vehicle has a carburetor, check the float level and needle valve for leaks.(also make sure the float actually floats...some develop leaks or foam type sometimes become saturated and sink) If injected, make sure that the throttle position sensor, map sensor and pressure regulator are working correctly and that the temperature sensor is also good.Last, check any vapor recovery system used...they sometimes can fill with fuel and allow raw fuel to re-enter the airstream and richen up the mixture. After finding the problem, replace the spark plugs as likely by now they are fouled.
As there are a number of items to look at, I can't give you an exact "fix" but if the vehicle was here, those aqre the items I'd look at first.
good luck

Windshield wiper lever broke off steering column in 89 Jeep wrangler. How do you fix


If it's a multi-function switch or a single function arm, you will need to remove the steering wheel to access the attachment points. If you never have done this, get a basic manual such as haynes or chilton. Both have decent instructions to guide you and after, they have lots of good info to help with other problems as well. Since it's an 89, it's doubtful if it has an airbag...that makes things a lot less complicated.

89 jeep wrangler 4wd problem


The float in the tank is probably stuck or gummed up. Try a can of sea foam or Chem tool and checking for broken lead wires before removing the tank.
