Remove the fuel line (check condition) from the carburetor body, tip the engine up so that the fuel tank is a little higher than the fuel line end--fuel should run out. Does this unit have a primer button? If so, inspect for holes or cracks in the clear button and the condition of the two hoses attached to it. Remove the carburetor from the engine and inspect for a hard or cracked diaphragm and pumper valves (disassemble the carburetor). Clean with spray carburetor cleaner and re-kit it if you found bad parts. Install the H and L mixture screws to CW stops (lightly) and back out to 1-1/2 turns each. This should allow the engine to run. Warm up the engine, pull the throttle full on, and adjust the H screw until the engine just starts running at high speed with cutting line deployed at full operating length. Drop back to idle and adjust L for smooth idle, but still allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed high enough to keep it running.

Engine having trouble getting enough fuel because it does not pick up speed

How do you know it is not getting enough fuel? Any lean codes set? Backfiring? There could be many other reasons it will not pick up speed such as leak in the hose from MAF to throttle body, bad TPS, bad coil/module. If it is fuel starved, change fuel filters and test pressure while driving.

2001 Chevy s10 4.3 surges and won't pick up speed. Valves rattle when you mash accelerator to the floor and it smells like its flooding out

You want to start with the knock sensor, located on the side of the block, about 1 1/4 inches in diameter, 1 1/2 inches long. funny looking sensor. It is suposed to pick up knocks/pings in the engine and tells the ECM to advance or ****** the engine. Check the engine for codes, even if the light is not on. Let me know we can go from there

My 1991 toyota pick ,will start but shut off ,

I would check out the Mass Air Flow Sensor. Located on top of the air filter box. If the sensor is bad and computer doesn't see air going into the engine, it will automatically keep the engine from running. Try pulling the engine trouble code to confirm is problem.

91 ford mustang 5.0 fuel pump and relay is working but the pump is not getting power

How do you know the fuel pump is not getting power?.The fuel pump only comes on for a second or two before cutting back off.The ecm only suppys power to the relay for a few short seconds with key in the on position.Only constant 12 volts is supplied when the engine is running.Is the fuel pump new?How do we know it is good?Also is the engine giving a spark when the engine is turning over?If the engine has no spark,then the pick up coil could be bad,otr the ignition module could be bad.Check the fuel at the injsctors or a fuel line to see if the fuel will pump out when the key is turned on,if it does not,then check to see if the ijectors are pulsing.If the injectors are not pulsing ,and you have spark,then remove the distributor and replace the pick up coil,and the ignition module.The pick up coil,along with the igniyion module give the injectors there pulse.One other thing,If the fuel pump is not for sure coming on,check to see if the relay is clicking on,and then off in a couple of seconds.If this is true,then replace the fuel pump.Any other questons,please ask,I will try to help if I can.I hope this was some help,let me know,thanks.

How can we check the ignitor and coil ? what are the specs?

What engine do you have? You could still hear your fuel pump running but if you haven't checked the fuel pressure you may still have a problem with your fuel pump. You should be around 38 to 44 PSI when key is turned on not running. Did you verify you are getting spark or is there nothing to the plugs? Your ignition coil resistance should be (cold 9000-15,400 ohms) Primary should be .36-.55.
Your pickup coil resistance depending whether you are California or excluding California
California is
cold- pick up coil terminals G1 & G- Ohms 125-200
cold-Pick up coil terminals G2 & G- Ohms 125-200
cold-Pick up Coil terminals NE & G- Ohms 155-250
Ex. California models
cold-Pick up coil terminals G+ & G- Ohms 185-275
Cold-Pick up coil terminals NE+ & NE- Ohms 370-550 ohms
You also need to check air gap between PIck-up Coil & Signal rotor
California is .008-.020
Except California .008-.016

Here are some of the suggestions from Mitchell books:
*Ensure proper spark exists from ignition system
*Ensure Fuel system performs properly (fuel pump, Fuel filter, Fuel injectors, fuel pressure regulator).
*Check engine compression, valve clearance, valve timing and timing belt (if equipped)
Check airflow meter or MAP sensor and wiring
*Check idle air control valve (if equipped) and wiring.
*Check circuit opening relay and EFI main relay.
*Check STA signal at Engine Control Modual (ECM)
*Check Engine Control Modual (ECM) and wiring.

Low pick on uphill slope and low pick up with AC too

hello sir.

low pick up on uphill and low pick up with AC ON.

these both r general physics problem, due to the higher downforce on uphill the car will b having low pick up. n with AC 'ON' the AC will b using a part of fuel supply engine, hence with higher power on the AC, larger is the fuel sucked from the engine supply. hence the lesser is the fuel supply top the engine, thus low power output.

i requst u to please check your car performance with the car of same type, on the sane road, by yourself, then conclude that your car is not performing,

it happens with the age of the car too, with long run, ur car cluthes will b damaged, ur carborator, with low tire pressue, with low quality radiator oil, ur car engine may rise the temperature, thus reducing this power output.

surely their is no problem with your car.

a general check up with a local mechanic will surely fix it sir.

thank u .

if my soultion helped u, then plz give me a feedback.
