Question about Nissan Minivan

1 Answer

Good afternoon. I've just had the carb rebuilt on my '87 vanette but it is running a little rich, (using fuel and giving minor sooting out the pipe). Can you supply a schematic to show the mixture screw so I can knock it back a bit please? All running elecs are new, plugs points etc..., I'll clean the plugs and check everything is tight, mixture is the only thing I can think of as far as excess fuel use. It's only a beat up rusted out work van, but fuel is bloody expensive these days so any other advice you can offer would be extremely helpful! Thanks guys. Troy.

You say you "had it rebuilt" if some one else did the work, take it back :o)

The mixture screw is only for idle and won't affect much. Be sure the choke is comming all the way off as it warms up. Did the float level get adjusted properly?

Have a 400 Eiger. Had the carb rebuilt twice. But


Either the carb isn't being rebuilt correctly, wrong parts, or assembled incorrectly. Special attention to the valve seat and float position. Also, did you set the idle mixture? The classic 2½ turns is ONLY a baseline.

Just installed a rebuilt carb. on a 1984 Dodge ram D-150, when coming to a stop it lopes and sometimes stalls, also when turning left it stutters and sometimes dies, worse when its been ran for a while.


You probably need to adjust the air/fuel mixture screws. Sounds like its running a little too rich. When you first start the engine, is the idle speed real low? If it is, then this is more evidence that its running rich

I have a 1978 ford inline six has a newer holley card having hard time adjusting it. Runs great at lower rpms and idel but when you drive it loses power and backfires.


As you know, you have one of two things going on. it is running too rich or too lean. Run it hard for 15 minutes pull the plugs and check for black, wet looking soot = rich. Brownish, whitish dry looking soot = lean. Be sure your vacuum advance on the carb is hooked up to the proper port. Check the full advance of the timing with a light to be sure you have proper advance during rev up. You want 22 degs. full advance. If you have a pull choke try to close the choke to see if that will level out the hi end. If that works you are running to rich. adjust as necessary to lean it out. Too big a carb can also be your problem. For the best carb to engine size double the cubic inch of you engine. If your engine is a 290 ci you max size carb should be approx 550 cfm, Now if you engine has a hi rpm cam profile you have to factor in needed cfm at hi rpm. Thats why such and engine for racing will not have good bottom end or low rpm power. Sounds like you have just the opposite going on. Which can still be caused by a over sized carb. Too much fuel not enough air or room in the engine to burn it.

98 gm blazer has black soot from muffler giving code insufficiant switching o2 sensor bank 1 and 2 any ideas ?


Your Jimmy is running rich, air fuel ratio is not correct. Start with cleaning your MAF sensor, a dirty MAF sensor will cause your engine to run rich or lean, other causes would be a faulty fuel pressure regulator. Start with the simple and to common and try cleaning your MAF sensor, you can pick up a can of MAF sensor cleaner at most auto parts store like Auto Zone or Part Source.
Also make sure your engine is running at the proper operation temperature 190", cold running engine will cause the ECM to run your engine rich. Causing the back soot and fouling up your spark plugs and intake ports with carbon.
The ECM was programed to recognize the 4.3 vortec to run at 190" and anything cooler will cause it to run rich and poor on economy.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck.

My 87 wrangler runs rich, idles rough, runs rough. guy put on an electric fuel pump. original carb. he said it needed a fuel pressure regulator. is he right?


sounds like it is flooding the carb, by putting a fuel pressure reg on it it will lower the pressure at the carb and stop overriding the float,needle and seat.

Car will start but dies when pressing the gas pedal


It sounds like you have an issue with something in your air/fuel mixture electronics. This could be something in your throttle body, mas air flow sensor, or even an oxygen sensor. When your car is idling the air/fuel mixture is acceptable for the engine to run. When you press on the gas either too much gas is dumped in the engine or too little. If you look at your exhaust pipe you may notice a heavy built up of black soot. This would indicate that your vehicle is running extremely rich (too much gas), if your exhaust is very white then your vehicle is running lean (too little gas). The smell of the exhaust can also tell you something about how the engine is running. If it smells sweet it is running rich. I hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me.
