1975 Datsun (ie. mechanical fuel pump). Carburettor, electrics (inc. battery all good) fuel strainer all good. On cold start engine needs to be cranked several times. Warm start is invariably immediate. ...


Carburated vehicles ether have an automatic choke, or the very old ones, a hand choke. Yours has an automatic choke. The starting problem likely is a problem with the choke. The problem is almost certainly not the fuel pump.To set the automatic choke, push the accelerator to the floor, and RELEASE. Then start the engine just like you would a fuel injected vehicle. If this doesn't solve the problem, then the automatic choke needs to be repaired.

Sometimes to start you have to give it a lot of


Hi
This sounds like a cold start system fault, which is a number of things.
  1. Cold start temperature sensor not operating correctly so the cold start system won't work when the engine is cold.
  2. The idle needs to be set to the correct RPM of the engine when warm, if it is idling ok when it is warm then this wont be the problem.
  3. Spark Plugs are worn and need replacing.
Most case's its the cold start system not operating correctly and if you have a good workshop to take it too they should pick this up quite quickly. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

1994 camry 4cyl. was running great. drove it to work and shut it off, then went to start it back up and it shut right off, wont idle. I can keep it running by keeping my foot on gas and its not running...


have your idle control switch check, easy and inexpensive to replace. The idle control switch is what keep the engine stay idle. also have your throttle body clean by a professional having that many miles, it will give you better gas mileage.

The jet keep on letting out to much fuel


The float in the carb is sticking..Buy a can of carb clean and spray it down as good as you can..In every hole and what you can get to...Alot of times this will work without having to take it off and clean it..After you spray it down really good let it sit for about 20 min.That will give it enough time to break down theat old gummy gas build up..After letting it sit Start it up..You may have to hold the gas pedal to the floor in order to start it because of the over satutration of the cleaner..After letting it run for awhile let it idle and go under the hood with it still idling and rev the motor up and closing the choke at the same time..You may have to rev it up a little high..When you rev it up and the motor is racing quick close the choke and the motor will start to die down and rev it a little with the choke on..What this does is by closing the choke when its reving up is it sucks all that crud build up out .You may have to do that a few times but it works great..Good Luck and Have a great day

As for your choke problem--- Check for blown fuse under dash labeled as choke. If ok then check for faulty fuseable link at starter.

Might just be the timing is off a bit, turn your distributor or if it has a carburator, the choke might need to be turned up.
