When was the last time you had a MAJOR tune up? Other than that, it could be as simple as adjusting the throttle.

1981 mitsubishi sigma won't turn off

It was a very common problem on carbureted cars, so common it was given a name: dieseling. You know, as how a diesel engine will run without spark plugs. You shut a hot engine off, there is still a little gas in the intake, and maybe the carburetor still drips a few drops down the throat. The crankshaft is still turning, so gas still gets into the hot combustion chambers, so hot it can still ignite the remaining gas, and you have "dieseling".
To rectify it, manufacturers years ago began putting an electrical solenoid in the carb's main fuel passage to stop fuel flow as soon as engine is shut off. They called this a fuel cut solenoid, fuel shut off solenoid, idle stop solenoid, or an anti-dieseling solenoid. I know datsuns had this solenoid at least as far back as the early '70's. Works very simply: turn the key on and solenoid was energized, retracting a plunger pin in the fuel passage. Turn key off and solenoid gets no power, so a spring inside the solenoid pushed the plunger back into the fuel passage. It almost entirely eliminated the problem, as long as the carburetor was adjusted correctly.
Actually, I think your '81 should or might have this fuel cut solenoid on the carburetor, and if so it may be inoperative and needs replacing. Not very expensive, and easy to replace- just screws out. Some had only a single wire connector, and some had two wires to them. It would probably be the only electrical to the carb, other than any electrical going to an electric choke, if so equipped.
Happy motoring with the old mits, Sarah. I still have an old Datsun pick-up, and now an '87 Sentra, carbureted unfortunately, lol.

I have a 87gl wagon, when pressing on the brake pedal it goes to the floor recently replaced master cylinder and front calipers with pads and bleed the system, the engine sputters also when driving...

Master cylinder must be bench bled before it is installed or it will not build pressure possible you have a bad booster try bleeding the master cylinder first

Bought a 92 Subaru Legacy wagon that started a top-side ticking sound last night, first time. Of course didn't hear that when I test drove. Someone told me it could be valves?

hi yes ticking in early model subarus is very a common valve/lifter prob in most cases a decent oil change or anti ticking treatment can quieten it or stop the noise altogether however in some cases the noisy part may be damaged beyond repair and need to be replaced

(TOYOTA SURF 1990 TURBO DIESEL) No diesel coming out of fuel pump

If it has glow plugs or an intake heater you will need to disable the circuit. Then you can use a small amount of ether to spray into the air cleaner.!!! If you spray too much and/or Dont disable the circuits you can damage the motor!!! When you spray the ether, if the engine starts and stalls then its not getting fuel. This could be related to the fuel pump, injection pump, the fuel system loosing its prime(fuel line leak), fuel shut-off valve or solenoid. If it doesn't start then it could be related to your timing, valves or maybe compression.

Motor not running

The problem was a electronic box which controls the multi valve system on the fuel pump not the ERPS. The box had lost it's earth contact. These motors don't have a cut off solenoid like older diesels, a lot of trial and error to find.
Now a happy fellow.
