It sounds like you may have a clogged catalytic converter

Cold choke baffle has 3/16 opening minute I pump accelerator choke thermostat closes primary baffle shut no air to start I force choke open to start why insufficient air to run at high idle?


Your engine probably has an automatic choke device that adjusts automatically with engine temperature. To set the choke when the engine is cold you have to depress the accelerator to the floor and release it completely. You shouldn't have to depress the accelerator again to start the engine, turn the key the engine should start. As the engine begins to warm up it will also begin to initially run faster then it will start to run rough. At this point you have to press the accelerator and release it again. The auto choke mechanism should allow the choke butterfly to open. There may be a number of stops in the system and the choke butterfly will stop again still not fully open and only become fully open when the engine is at operating temperature. Hope this answers you question, Rgs. Bob

94 Oldsmobile with 3100 V6, 130,000 miles. Runs very well except when you start the engine after it has sat overnight, it starts right up, but shifting into gear, the engine almost wants to stall, then if...


First check the fuel filter, fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator to make sure they are all functioning properly. Also, check the catalytic converter to make sure they are not plugged.

Everytime i start it, it spits out black smoke real bad...warms up and only smokes a lil on take offs..Can the lean burn or egr thing be taken off car and still run fine?


This problem is caused by bad electric choke, or improperly adjusted choke. The Electronic Fuel Control system, as well as EGR, don't come into play until the thing's warmed up. Check the electric choke and its adjustment, also check the choke control on the right rear of the intake, and the charge temp sensor adjacent to the choke control, just in front of the distributor.

1984 passat cl. the automatic choke runs too fast


the choke has 3 screws to adjust the unit,the choke itself will normaly be siezed inside at the age.With a warm engine, loosen the 3 screws and turn the choke untill the idle drops.

or as i did it-with a cold engine, remove the airffilter and with the 3 screws loose on the choke press the accelerator pedal just over half so the choke is engaged and the looking inside the filter housing adjust the choke flap by turning the choke housing until the flap is 3/4 closed and tighten slightly and start the car.Do remember to check your distributor timing whith a warm engine and make sure the sparkplugs and airfilter are okay as each upsets the other.

When i try to accelerate from a stop or from any speed my jimmy


Try replacing the Mass Air Flow Sensor, it is in line from the air filter box to the carb. Could have come unplugged or gone bad. They are not made to be cleaned or touched inside (that usually leads to damaging it). Good luck.

My 93 plym voyager, 3.0 has a hesitation when


if your having cold engine start hesitation,you need to check the engine temp switch,it tells the computer how cold it is,so the engine can adjust to a rich start and not a lean one.if the switch is faulty and the computer is being told it is 80degrees,you will not get a rich mixture like no choke at all

Just bought a 2000 saturn sl class. runs rough at start-up, runs great when warmed up. changed fuel pump and filter, plugs and wires. no difference. guessing throttle control (choke)


The problem here is the ECTS. Engine Coolant Temp. Sensor. It cost around $12 dollars and takes maybe 5 mins to fix with a 13mm socket. Saturn SL series built before november 2001 have a plastic ECTS. When you buy the new one make sure it has the brass tip as some parts stores still carry the cheap plastic one

Engine choking?


Is the check engine light on? If it is, take it to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve any fault code(s) stored in the car's computer. The codes will help narrow down what the problem may be. It could be a faulty throttle position sensor or another problem. To end the speculation, have the fault codes read. Hope this helped and best wishes.

RPMs are idling VERY high...


This is something you need to have looked at now,It could be so many things,from a vacuum leak to a bad sensor.But that is very unsafe to drive.
