Next on the list of crap going wrong every week: Car wont idle!!
Driving home from work after a week of the car running just fine, engine started idling extremly low then would shut off, no stuttering or anything, just a clean death. Car starts just fine, if i hold the pedal at what idle speed should be, it runs fine.
Some things i noticed:
The choke never closes on its own, it appears as tho it isnt connected to anything, not even the lever coming from the diaphram near the carb. just kinda sits there on its own in the closed position. with the car started if i hold the choke near closed it idles just fine, except extremely high.
The spring on the arm next to the choke seems to be very loose. Is the choke supposed to be attached to this arm somehow? it appears as tho it should be but i can find nothing in my manual to give me a good picture.
