The choke is usually on the passenger side of the carb with one electrical plug on it and three crewes or rivets holding it on the carb

Intake cleaner or carb and choke cleaner???

The two products are generally the same with a couple of differences.
Sometimes the intake and throttle body cleaner can be sprayed upside down to reach areas hard to get to with the can in the upright position.
Some intake and throttle body cleaner products are supposed to be ok with special metals and plastics used on newer cars and trucks.
You would probably be safer with intake and throttle body cleaner if the car is fuel injected.

Is it possible to put a manual choke on a 83 Ford Ranger with 2.o 4 cyl. ?

You would have to take a look at a conversion kit and see if there is a plastic cup that will fit your carb. The cup is used in place of the electric choke coil on the carb now.

75 chevy c10 flooding excessively i have replaced float and rebuilt carb can i abandon thermastatic choke

yes you can but may cause problem with cold starts.. is the black plastic choke thermostat adjustable? if so loosen the 3 flat head screws, do not remove them,, rotate choke thermostat counter clock wise until you see the choke butter fly start to break open.. stop and turn back clockwise about 1/4 of a turn.. that should give you just enough choke to start cold engine

The car will not keep running until all warmed up.

Believe it or not I used to be a mechanic for chrysler. There are a couple of things to look at and I'm sure you'll find the problem. #1 is to check for any vaccuum leaks in the hoses and the intake manifold.I do this by spraying carb cleaner in little spurts towards a specific area and listen to see if the engine rpm raises while it is running. #2 is a carb problem--Usually with the high idle solenoid (located on the Passenger side of the carb) or the choke. Check to see if you have power at the wires leading to the using a test light or a volt meter before you start it up. If you do have power then start the vehicle or have someone start it for you while you are under the hood and examine the choke operation. B4 you start it the vehicles choke should be completely closed. If it is, it should open as the vehicle warms up when working properly. If not working properly it will either stay closed and cause the vehicle to flood out or run rough and backfire or it will be open(stay open ) and the vehicle will not stay running unless warmed up for sure.# 3 It could also be caused by a combination of the high idle solenoid holding the choke open and then causing the choke to stick open.

My 82 chevy g20 van is running really rich i changed the plugs but still get alot of black smoke out the exhuast. i can smell its running rich. also the engine temp does not get very high. im thinking the...

Take your carb cover off and see if the top butterfly valve is open when engine is warm. If not the choke is sticking. Also be sure your air filter is clean (or new) because a dirty air filter acts as a choke if too dirty.

Flooding,black smoke,run hard,choke sticking

The first thing i would look at here is the choke pull. Make sure that after the car starts, the choke props open. Also, as the engine warms, make sure the electric choke is opening up. If not, make sure you have 12V to the choke. If so, replace it. This should solve the problem.

But let me know if you need any further assistance, ok? We'll get it working! :)

your pistons have all been burning oil. there is a break in a seal somewheres and will need to be serviced. continual usage without repair will ruin your engine.

My 1987 firebird keeps flooding out,why?

Several things can cause this but start by verify the choke pull off which is responsible for opening the choke plate after engine has started.It will recieve engine vaccum once started and open to allow air into the carb. This is a vacuum dash pot/pull-off externally mounted to the carb with a linkage arm to the choke plate.Without this opening,the engine will be starved for air and put you into a full rich condition. Another external device wchich can mysteriously cause rich conditions is the canister purge valve. It can introduce raw fuel and vapor on start up when failed.It is a black plastic valve near the carb with small and large vacuum tubes.

Carb is acting weird cant seem to adjust

That is the choke adjustment,have you checked your timing on the motor and check and see if the vacum pod on the distributer is working. also check your vacum lines for any tears or cracks in them.
