Question about 2000 Lotus Esprit V8

2 Answers

I have a motorhome make Honey 421S with a chevy 454. the choke light stays on, and it smells like a gas station after a ride. Consumes lots of fuel and I don't understand the vacuum system. Anyone can help? Anyone knows the wiring of this make? PS. please update your product choices. Honey is a registered brand.

Year of vehicle ? 454 engine was made for many years with different type of fuel sources carb , injected if carb check to see if choke linkage is not sticking and that vacuum actuator is working and if choke stuck closed or part way--problems with choke will either stall engine or make it run rich

Update? If the Motorhome has a carburetor, its pretty old and has a P30 chassis. Gm makes the truck, Honey makes the camper. Check the electric choke and make sure it has power to it when the engine is running, if not check all fuses. I dont have a diagram to see where the choke gets power from. Make sure the choke pull off is working, its a little vac can on the right side of the carb, if it leaks, it wont pull the choke flap open. Anyone that works on Quadrajet Carbs can fix it for you.

Choke ligt on at idle 1986 chevy w/ quadrajet carb


sounds like the float is sticking or may have a hole in it, you can try adding some automatic transmission fluid to the gas - sometimes works if it sticking,check for a vaccume leak - but usually won't overfuel with a leak- but has happend.

Its possible if you have a carb instead of fuel injection.
The engine would stall and have to sit for a while to cool off before restarting. The carb would in effect run out of gas.

My 1995 Chevy 3500 454 4x4 wont stay running, I start it up and it starts, idles up for about 1 sec. then it dies, If I pump the gas it will choke some bit idle up and die. I have replaced all the sensors...


have you check the fuel pressure with a gage it should be about 35lbs if its not a vortec motor,if it is then the pressure should be no less then 55lbs.

We have a 1984 motorhome with a Chevy 454 in it. Where is the fuel pump located? My brother-in-law says its not in the fuel tank, but he can't see it.


They usually dont put fuel pumps any where else but the fuel tank. My guess would be that if he cant see it then its in the fuel tank
