I didn't know anybody even used carburetors after 1982. By that time, it was cheaper and easier to meet clean air standards with fuel injection, and if done right, fuel injection provides better performance anyway. You can tweak performance with different manifolds, improved exhaust piping and possibly a turbocharger. There may be a "high-performance" ROM chip for your engine computer; this permits a greater fuel delivery under acceleration conditions.

Note: some smaller engines used a single throttle body injector rather than one for each cylinder. Theoretically you could replace this with a carburetor, but modifying the engine controls to work correctly with it would be a nightmare.

I have an 07 Chrysler Sebring, was driving last and it died, lost power and only light coming on is a red lighting bolt with the red backwards brackets. What should I do?


Hello Bobby-Jo Hill,

Fix it... or get it fixed...
(as troubles go... not horrible (wear gloves)).

Looking at your owners manual ... ( Red symbol)
Item 19 appears on the attached PAGE 138...

Chrysler 2007 Sebring Sedan Instruction Manual Page 138

Defined as YOUR...
ELECTRONIC THROTTLE CONTROL INDICATOR.

If you take it to a DEALER... (I don't recommend)
it is likely their "mechanics" are twice as old as your
Like... "MAP" (Manifold Pressure SENSOR)...

Take it to a RECOMMENDED mechanic... See if there are complimentary READINGS available and get an ESTIMATE.

Your manual indicates the car should still be drivable...
(MEANING a TOW isn't YET required ...
(plan no long trips)).

Once the codes (diagnostic trouble) are written down...
You will have a real idea what you need...
(come back here & repost... certainly take pictures).

Just remember... replacing OXYGEN SENSORS make about as much sense as buying a new thermometer... if you have a FEVER.

Save the money... a collapsed muffler or catalytic converter
could ALSO cause very similar issues... code reading your
On-Board Diagnostic systems is the only really cost effective way to resolve your issue...

Go Click on the ROCKAUTO Link below...
Note a few of the prices... and pay close attention
to EXHAUST parts if you live in a C.A.R.B. compliant state
(like New York or California) purchasing the "WRONG" part
can be HIDEOUSLY expensive...

What I like MOST about ROCKAUTO...
THEY WARN YOU...
(3 engines possible, 2.4 (4 cylinder), 2.7 & 3.5L (V6))

Good luck

3l, 6 cyl (California emissions). Where is the 4th O2 or (A/F) sensor?


HO2S( heated sensor) are before the cat convertor either in the manifold or exhaust pipe to the cat converter
O2 sensors are in the exhaust after the cat converter/s
I am drawing the difference because they are not all O2 sensors as each has a different operation for the position in the exhaust
the missing one will be in the exhaust manifold or pipe at a convenient position for servicing before the cat converter

I HAVE THIS PROBLEM WITH MY BMW 530 D A 2004 MODEL AND SOMETIME IN 2013 SEND IT TO BMW TO REPAIR THE EXHAUST EMISSIONS AS THE LIGHT KEEPS COMING UP AND PAYED A FORTUNE AND THE CAR HAS NOT BEEN REPAIRE


It would appear that there is a crack in the exhaust manifold or a faulty manifold gasket. The fault light may be the ECM warning of a "faulty" O2 sensor which is the one after the cat converter as the ECM reads the differences in voltages between the front sensor ( HO2S) and the O2 sensor. That is how it knows of such things as faulty cat converter, manifold leaks ,manifold leaks etc.
If it is not under warranty find an accredited shop that specialises in you make of car for a second opinion, but if still covered by warranty complain very loudly to the manufacturer about the service dealer.

What is inlet or exhaust in land rover discovery -2000


The intake valves(routed to the intake manifold/injectors/throttle body) usually have a tighter clearance specification than the exhaust valves(ruted to the exhaust manifolds/catalytic converters,etc).This is due to the exhaust valves running at a higher tempurature than the intake valves.The only engine I have had long enough to require adjustment of the valves is my 77 Plymouth Volare'(it has a Slant Six 225 with mechanical lifters).My father put about 95,000 miles on it without adjusting the valves.(supposed to be done about every 20,000 miles).My Barracuda was getting to the point of weekly repair,so I decided it was time for a complete teardown and a nut and bolt restoration(after 18 years,I'm finally painting it!)The Volare was cosmetically rough,but just needed some tune up stuff to get it running for daily use.I rebuilt the carb,and used the 5 gas analylizer in the shop to tune it to perfection(it took 4 hours to rebuild,I spent 5 hours adjusting it).It started and ran better,but I knew there was room for improvement.My next task on the list was to adjust the valves,mostly becuase of the noise(it sounded like an old Teletype machine!).I set the clearance at .010" on the intake,and .020" exhaust per the factory manual(my father was smart to buy the mechanical AND electrical manuals as part of the new car purchase deal!)The valve adjustment made such a positive difference that I had to adjust the carb again.The first trip after transferring the tags was to my parent's house.My father couldn't believe how quiet and smooth it ran! So,good for you for doing this maintainance.Engines require so little routine adjustment that it sometimes gets forgotten anymore.

What is emission system


THE EMISSION SYSTEM IS DESIGNED TO TRAP AND STORE FUEL VAPORS THAT EVAPORATE FROM THE FUEL TANK.THROTTLE BODY AND INTAKE MANIFOLD DURING NON OPERATION OR IDLING STORE THEM IN THE CHARCOAL CANISTER AND THEN ROUTE THEM INTO THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER TO BE BURNED DURING ENGINE OPERATION.THE PCV VALVE ITS PART OF THE EMISSION SYSTEM.IT SCAVENGING CRANKCASE VAPORS IT DOES THIS BY CIRCULATING FRESH AIR FROM THE AIR CLEANER THROUGH THE CRANKCASE WHERE IT MIXES WITH BLOW BY GASES AND IS THEN REROUTED THROUGH A PCV VALVE TO THE INTAKE MANIFOLD.THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER IS PART OF THE EMISSION SYSTEM IT REDUCE POLLUTANTS FROM THE EXHAUST GAS STREAM IT LOWERS LEVELS OF OXIDES OF NITROGEN AS WELL AS HYDROCARBONS AND CARBON MONOXIDE.THE EGR VALVE PART OF EMISSION SYSTEM IT LOWER OXIDES OF NITROGEN EMISSION LEVELS CAUSED BY HIGH COMBUSTION TEMPERATURES.THE EGR VALVE RECIRCULATES A SMALL AMOUNT OF EXHAUST GASES INTO INTAKE MANIFOLD.SMOG PUMP IS ALSO EMISSION CONTROL COMPONENT IT INJECTING AIR INTO THE EXHAUST DOWNSTREAM FROM THE EXHAUST PORTS TO HELP COMPLETE THE COMBUSTION OF ANY UNBURNED GASES AFTER THEY LEAVE THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER.

your uncles olds probably has a 425 or a 455 engine in it. anyways, your carb, either 2 barrel or 4 barrel, is 24 years old and is in need of an rebuild. you call call around for an estimate or buy a carb already rebuilt and that should solve your problem. the older carbs will not have the same emissions fittings/hardware and would probably not pass an emissions test.
