More than likely, your carburetor needs cleaned. I like to use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to clean out the small ports in carb. Make sure that the small screen is clean and free of debris. If after you do this, and it still doesn't run properly, then you will need to buy a carb. kit and replace the gaskets, needle valve, and small screen. You may have extra gaskets left over, but that's o.k. because that is the way they come.

84 dodge 318 sluggish and laks power at throttle up whats wrong?


If adjusting the air valves on the carb doesn't help. you likely need to have the carburater cleaned. The air adjustment needles are located at the base of the carb at the front. Turn them out until you reach high idle, and then in again, about one full turn. If that doesn't help, you'll have to put a carb kit in, and have it cleaned.

Cant find the idle screw


Hi allenplum,
There are 2 mixture screws, 1) the idle speed screw, 2) is the idle speed mixture screw. The idle speed screw is located on the carburetor, nar the throttle arm where your throttle cable is connected. There is a screw that you will find there that you screw in or out to speed up, or slow down the engine idle. The idle speed mixture screw is located lower down on carb and has a spring on it. There should be 2 screws side by side, one is the idle speed and the other is the high speed mixture screw. They are marked on the carb body, with the letter H or L . To adjust, remember the screw position before you do any adjustments. Start by turning the screw in (clockwise) all the way in until lightly seated, so no damage is done to the seat or needle. Turn out (counterclockwise) 11/4 inch, this should be OK to start the engine. Along with the idle speed screw, you should be able to get the correct idle required. With all the modernization happening, there might not be a high or low adjust as they are ported inside the carb. You might get just the high or just the low adjust needles. I hope this is helpful to you. All the best and good luck. Denis.

Need a manual or something I have a traxxas .15 stamped 2wd need to adjust the Carb it has 2 screws need to know which one does what and what would be a standard adjustment


There are actually 3 screws on the carb. The big one is the most important, it adjust the high speed fuel mixture. A good starting point is 2 1/2 turns out from fully seated. There is a small screw which is located right next to the air intake. This is the idle stop and should be set so that the engine idles smoothly. The third screw is located on the side. It is also small and it controls the idle fuel mixture. A good starting point for the idle fuel mixture screw is 1 3/4 turns out from fully seated.

MY CAR IDLES VERY HIGH, THEN LOW, THEN HIGH AND ROUGHLY.WHERE IS THE IDLE ADJUSTMENT LOCATED?


There is no idle adjustment. The idle is computer controlled. It does sound like you have a vacuum leak. The most common problem for this is a bad intake gasket. When it is running ruff spray a little carb spray around the area where the intake bolts to the head. If the engine smooths out you found your problem.

Please be careful when doing this. Carb spray is flammable!

WILL YOU PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO ADJUST THE CARB AIR-GAS THE THREE YOU TURN WITH A SCREWDRIVER


Set both the high and low speed screws from lightly seated to 1 1/4 turns out. This will give you a rough setting that will allow the saw to start and idle. Set the idle screw to where the chain just stops moving at idle.
With the saw warmed up adjust the low speed screw out until the saw smokes a bit and acceleration is sluggish. Bring the screw in small steps until the hesitation is gone from the acceleration...you may need to adjust the idle again after this.
Now hold the throttle wide open and while it is wide open adjust the high speed screw in until the noise becomes smooth and the saw "sings". Do not leave it at this setting as it will burn down in short order. Once the saw is singing back the screw out until you can hear the saw's tone "roughen"....then back the screw out a tad more for good power / fuel under load.
That's it in a nutshell...here's a good link also...

I have a problem with my1989 gmc suburban, the idle is set way too high ( apx 2700 rpm) where is the idle adjustment screw located on the carb?


there is no carb, and no adjustment. if it idles too high, there is a vacuum leak, so check the large hose going from the base of the throttle body to the valve cover. if thats OK, these are known to have a leak at the base gasket, usually at the rear of the throttle body. spray carb cleaner around the base and see if the idle changes, if it does, replace the base gasket.

CLEAND CARB NEED TO KNOW HOW TO ADJUST CARB


Most carbs have the adjustment removed (EPA) but if yours still has the adjusting screws here are the seat of the pants methods:

One Screw Carb: Turn it all the way in and then back out 3-1/2 turns, start the engine and make slight turns in or out until the motor runs smooth from idle to wide open, do not get it too lean, turn in until max RPM is reached then turn out 1/8 turn and go from there.

Two Screw Carb: You adjust the one to remedy either the low or high, high is adjusted until the motor runs smoothly under load at high RPM and the low is adjusted until idle and off idle is smooth.
