Choke problem

Replace the chock thermostat. When the engine is cold, the choke is in closed position to restrict airflow and give rich fuel mixture to combustion chamber. As engine area warms up, the choke thermostat gradually opens air passage to increase air flow to combustion chamber, resulting in leaner fuel mixture. The choke is in "full open" while the engine is cold, resulting in lean mixture, causing the engine to die unless you add more throttle to increase fuel mixture.

Honda izy self propelled auto choke,the problem is the auto choke,it takes sometimes about five minutes to switch of,then when i stop the machine and start it again..say after about five minutes choke...

This is controlled by a thermostat next to muffler that is connected to choke. These thermostats often fail. They are not that hard to replace though. I never liked the design of these from the start. Should be easy fix though. Good luck.

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

F150 choke thermostat has sparks what is the problem

I would disconnect the electric feed from this choke unit. Sparks and fuel vapor are a bad combination. The heating element inside the black choke cover is shorted.

You should be able to get a new element at an autoparts store. Make sure you position the choke spring properly on the lever inside the case. Some use a loop in the spring to fit over the lever and some have a spring which fits between the small slot in the lever.

As for the sticking, check the action without the choke spring attached. The unloader in the choke system has a small piston which is drawn by vacuum. The rebuild instructions mention how to adjust or clean this passage.

I hope my solution is helpful.

Sometimes my car starts and sometimes it does not. everything is on in my car but engine won"t turn over. i let it sit for a long period of time and it starts. what could be worg with it?

The first thing I'd suspect would be the distributor cap & rotor, but my 2003 PT Cruiser manual says:

1 - Inspect Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator --- Faulty Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator.
2 - Inspect Carburetor Float --- Faulty Choke Float.
3 - Inspect Choke Pulloff --- Faulty Choke Pulloff.
4 - Inspect Choke Thermostat --- Stuck or Improperly Functioning Choke Thermostat.
5 - Inspect Fuel Injector Cold Start Valve --- Damaged or Faulty Cold Start Valve.
6 - Inspect Spark Plugs --- Fouled Spark Plugs.
7 - Inspect Relay - Fuel Pump --- Faulty Fuel Pump Relay.
8 - Inspect PCV Valve --- Plugged or Damaged PCV Valve.
9 - Inspect Carburetor --- Choke Not Operating.

Have to stick screw driver down carb to open flappers to get started then the 1988 350 rins bad and if stalls it wont satrt again.

Your carburetor has an electrically controled choke thermostat. In addition to this you have what is known as a choke pull-off diaphram. this pull off over a peroiod of time wears through the rubber diaphram and it fails to open the choke the necessary amount to stop from choking the engine out completely. Now, during this failure your sparkplugs have become irreperably blackened with fuel soot and they cannot be cleaned. this is why once your engine warms up it will not run because fouled plugs will only fail when they are warm. You need to have your choke thermostat, your choke pull-off valve and your spark plugs checked and or changed.

1981 dodge power ram carb problem with choke sticking and deisling some times at shut off

One problem is related to the other.The dieseling is caused by a rich air/fuel mixture which is caused by the closing choke.So you need to adjust the choke to where it is slightly open when the engine is cold.If it is electric then it has a thermostatic device that positions the choke just cracked open when cold and slowly opens as the engine heats up.Whats happening is the choke may actually be loose and when the engine shuts off the vacuum pulls the choke close creating the combustable rich fuel mixture(if you watched the choke when someone else turns off the engine you'll see the choke flapping while the engine is dieseling).Try putting a screw driver in the carb(with engine running) blocking the choke from closing.Then shut the engine off.It shouldnt diesel.You may have to replace the carb thermostat

Choke won't close all the way down

I'm not exactly sure about the 1987 toyota choke, but the basic concept of a choke is that the butterfly(flap in top of the carburetor) needs to close to allow less air and more fuel to enter the intake when the engine is cold. This is acomplished on most carburetors with an electric choke thermostat. The thermostat has a bimetallic spring that is would up and connected to the butterfly through a rod. The bimetallic spring is made of a special allow that expands and contracts as the temperature changes. Usually through a relay of some sort 12v or less is applied to the choke thermostat with the engine running and used to heat the spring therefor releasing tension on the closed butterfly. It sounds like your butterfly is never opening as the engine is warming up, and staying on fast idle. See if there is a wire on the thermostat and remove it and check it with a voltmeter with the car running, there should be >8vDc. If there's voltage then the thermostat is probably faulty(as long as the linkage is ok) If there is no voltage, check the fuses and fuse links and then consult a schematic to see where the voltage is suppiled from/to, could be a faulty relay as well.
